Prepared internally, no external costs.
Please can I have a report of any overspends of budgets since the year 2000 to-date in the Health and Community Services department and what actions were taken.
The States of Jersey Annual Business Plan allocates funds to individual Government Departments and capital projects to deliver Jersey’s Strategic Aims. Through the Annual Business Plan debate, the States Assembly allocates funding to departments in the form of Net Revenue Expenditure Limits (budgets) from the Consolidated Fund. Any approved changes to expenditure limits are reported to the States Assembly.
The Consolidated Fund is governed by the Public Finances (Jersey) Law 2005 and is the fund through which the majority of the States’ income and expenditure is managed, including General Revenue Income and departmental income and expenditure.
During the year, these expenditure limits can be varied for the following main reasons:
- Carry forward of unspent revenue expenditure budget voted in the previous year’s Business Plan, approved by the Minister for Treasury and Resources.
- Amounts transferred between capital and revenue budgets, approved by the Minister for Treasury and Resources.
- Additional amounts voted by the States Assembly during the year.
As Health and Community Services is a Government Department of the States of Jersey, there is no individual departmental reported overspend.
