Frozen Allotments in Voted Authorities for Supplementary Estimates (B), 2018–19

Parliamentary authority typically expires at the end of the fiscal year. For example, authorities approved through all appropriation acts for the fiscal year 2018–19 will expire on March 31, 2019 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 2018–19, the total amount frozen in voted authorities is $3,750,432,336 as of January 16, 2019. Most of these frozen allotments are due to the planned reprofiling of funds ($1,725,906,040) to future years, and uncommitted authorities in the Treasury Board managed central votes ($1,790,167,758).

This annex summarizes, by category and department, all permanently frozen allotments included in voted authorities.

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

Throughout 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.

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.

Other

Other forecasted lapses are largely related to uncommitted authorities in the Treasury Board central votes.
