Departmental expenses by output 
for the year ended 30 June 2015

This is the third year of the Department's programme to move resources from the previous functional basis to focus them on integrated management at priority sites. This programme is aimed at improving both operational effectiveness through targeting the highest priority work, and efficiency by undertaking multiple management actions at once on these sites, for example managing possums by combining possum and rat control at the site. This move affects resource allocations in Management of Natural Heritage, Management of Recreational Opportunities, and Conservation with the Community.
