Frozen Allotments in Voted Authorities for Supplementary estimates (C), 2016-17

Parliamentary authority typically expires at the end of the fiscal year. For example, authorities approved through all appropriation acts for the fiscal year 2016–17 will expire on March 31, 2017 for most organizations.

During the fiscal year, the government can take decisions to adjust priorities or the implementation of individual initiatives. These decisions are effected by using frozen allotments to constrain appropriated authorities where necessary. At the end of the fiscal year, these frozen allotments are included in the lapse shown in Public Accounts.

For the fiscal year 2016–17, the total amount frozen in voted authorities is $2,958,440,536 as of January 10, 2017. Most of these frozen allotments are due to the planned reprofiling of funds ($2,119,910,423) to future years, and uncommitted authorities in the Treasury Board managed central votes ($579,378,780).

This annex includes a summary by category of all frozen allotments in voted authorities, and lists by category and department of the items included in the summary figures.

Categories of Frozen Allotments

Reprofiled
Reprofiling provides for unused authorities from one fiscal year to be made available in subsequent fiscal years, to reflect changes in the expected timing of program implementation. Unused funds in the current fiscal year are put into a frozen allotment. New Parliamentary authority is required for each future year of planned spending.
Transferred or reallocated
Through a fiscal year, organizations may transfer or reallocate funds between votes within their organization and to other organizations. Such adjustments may be effected through frozen allotments. Unless otherwise indicated below, the amounts presented in these Estimates include the contributions from participating organizations to the Back Office Transformation initiative, which is led by the Treasury Board Secretariat.
Reduction
An organization's authorities are reduced when the funds are no longer available for the original purpose. This could happen because an initiative or program is canceled, or savings are identified to be returned to the fiscal framework. In most cases, the figures presented in these Estimates are related to the Government's commitment in budget 2016 to reduce spending on professional services, travel and advertising.
Other
Other forecasted lapses are largely related to uncommitted authorities in the Treasury Board central votes. Refer to the additional notes following the table.
