This report provides actual performance and financial information against the budgeted expenditure and planned performance targets laid out in the Portfolio Budget Statements 2002-2003. No changes were made to the Museum's outcome or output structure for the year.
Following a review of the National Museum's first year of operation to ensure it was able to maintain its range and level of activities, an additional $9.0 million in operating funds was provided by the Government over and above the previously approved base funding for 2002-2003. This increased base funding estimates to $9.2 million, $9.4 million and $9.6 million in the outyear.
The performance framework summarised in the table below does not correspond directly to the Museum's diverse range of activities. Accordingly, a summary of achievements follows the performance table to provide a context for the Museum's formal reporting requirements.
