Capital Charge payment : 2017 Vs 2018

Antony Andrews made this Official Information request to Capital and Coast District Health Board

The request was successful.

From: Antony Andrews

Dear Capital and Coast District Health Board,

Based on the financial information CCDHB provided to MoH, I see that for period ending June 2017 the year to date capital charge paid to the crown was $5662 ($'000) whereas for period ending June 2018 it jumped to $24,373 ($'000).
This is quite a big jump compared to past few years. Are you able to substantiate what was the reason for such a big rise in capital charge paid to crown for period ending June 2018 when compared with period ending June 2017.

Was the reason any one of the following?
1. Significant purchase of new capital assets in 2018 which required CCDHB to pay such a high capital charge in 2018?
2. Was there capital charge arrears from previous years which got paid in the year 2018.
3. Was there an increase in funding in 2018, which then allowed CCDHB to pay previous arrears of capital charge?
4. Was there a special fund set up in 2018 dedicated to paying the capital charge.

I am not sure of all the reasons.

Could you please provide a detailed explanation of the reasoning behind this significant jump in capital charge payment to crown between 2017 and 2018.

Thank you for your time.

Yours faithfully,

Antony Andrews
