The budgeted departmental financial statements for the (GBRMPA) are presented in this section. Information from the budgeted financial statements, forms part of the financial statements that will appear in the GBRMPA's 2003-04 Annual Report, and is also required as input into the Whole of Government Accounts.
This statement provides a picture of the expected financial results for the GBRMPA by identifying full accrual expenses, revenues and capital use charge (in 2002-03 only), which highlights whether the GBRMPA is operating at a sustainable level.
This statement shows the financial position of the GBRMPA. It helps decision makers to track the management of the GBRMPA's assets and liabilities.
Budgeted cash flows, as reflected in the statement of cash flows, provide important information on the extent and nature of cash flows by categorising them into expected cash flows from operating activities, investing activities and financing activities.
Shows all planned capital expenditure (capital expenditure on non-financial assets), whether funded either through capital appropriations for additional equity or borrowings, or from funds from internal sources.
Shows budgeted acquisitions and disposals of non-financial assets during the budget year.

Under the Commonwealth's accrual budgeting framework, and consistent with Australian Accounting Standards, transactions that agencies control (departmental transactions) are separately budgeted for and reported on from transactions over which agencies do not have control (administered transactions). This ensures that agencies are only held fully accountable for the transactions over which they have control.
Under the Commonwealth's accrual budgeting framework, separate annual appropriations are provided for:
Special appropriations exist under the accrual appropriation framework, and fund the majority of payments from the Consolidated Revenue Fund.
The Government has agreed to discontinue the Capital Use Charge from 1 July 2003.
Each Commonwealth Department is required to show an administered investment in each Commonwealth Authority and Company Act (CAC) entity within their portfolio. These administered investments should be valued at the Commonwealth's ownership interest in the net assets of those CAC entities, fixed at a notional acquisition date of 30 June 1997.
From 1 July 2002 Commonwealth agencies and authorities are required to use either the cost basis or the fair value basis to measure Property, Plant and Equipment. The shift from the deprival method of valuation to fair value should occur gradually over a three-year period. Fair value essentially reflects the current market value of an asset. See guidance from the Department of Finance and Administration on how to calculate fair value.
The variation in appropriation from 2002-03 to 2003-04 is due primarily to discontinuation of the Capital Use Charge.
Includes revenue from Reef HQ. Revenue from developer funded monitoring is estimated to decrease from 2002-03 levels.
Principles agreed between the Commonwealth and Queensland government relating to day-to-day management of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park provide for Queensland Government agencies to carry out day-to-day management subject to the GBRMPA's requirements with the programme which is jointly funded by both Governments.
The Budget estimate for 2003-04 is for a balanced result from ordinary activities.
The major component of receivables is the Special Appropriation received by the Authority under the legislation for collection of the Environmental Management Charge (EMC). Amounts collected by the Authority are paid into the Official Public Account and then paid back to the Authority as a Special Appropriation. Receivables are for the amount of the EMC applicable to a particular financial year but received after 30 June of that year.
Capital works continued in 2002-03 on the refurbishment of Reef HQ. The facility re-opened on 31 July 2002.
