National Oceans Office

Section 1 - Agency Overview

OVERVIEW

Since the 2004-05 Portfolio Budget Statements, the National Oceans Office has been abolished as an Executive Agency under the Public Service Act 1999 on 26 October 2004 and as a Prescribed Agency under the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997 on 3 November 2004 following the Ministry changes announced after the recent election.
The budget estimates for the National Oceans Office have been incorporated into the Department of the Environment and Heritage - Outcome 1 Environment. Consequently, the 2004-05 budget estimates are apportioned between the Agency Additional Estimates Statements for the National Oceans Office (1 July 2004 to 3 November 2004) and the Department of the Environment and Heritage (4 November 2004 to 30 June 2005).
