Publication of 2011 Revised Estimates for Public Services
The 2011 Revised Estimates for Public Services were placed in the Dáil Éireann library today.
The Revised Estimates Volume (REV) gives a fuller, more detailed breakdown of spending by each department and Vote than the spending totals announced on Budget Day. The REV also gives the provisional outturn for spending in 2010.
The Estimates for a number of Votes have been restructured on a Strategic Programme basis, consistent with the presentation of the respective Annual Output Statements and Statements of Strategy. These Estimates have been supplemented with certain performance information regarding the outputs and impacts of Programme expenditure. This initiative is intended to facilitate the work of Dáil Éireann and its Select Committees in holding Ministers and Heads of Department to account for the proposed allocation of, and effective utilisation of, public funds. Subject to the views received in relation to this pilot phase, it is proposed that the Performance Budgeting approach will be rolled out to all Votes from 2012 on.
Details of further technical changes to the Budget Estimates are set out in the Volume itself.
Total gross voted expenditure in 2011 is projected at €57.5 billion, just over €3 billion less than 2010. The year-on-year percentage decrease over 2010 is 2.7% in respect of gross current expenditure, 25.4% for capital and a decrease of 5.0% overall. This is in line with the percentages published at Budget time.
