Part one of your request
In response to the first part of your request, the csv file in Appendix One shows the total
Capital Spend and Maintenance aspect of the Operations Grant for al State Not Integrated
schools for the last 10 years.
About the data:
The data excludes GST

Excludes $230M of spend on land and buildings for schools that have not yet
Excludes internal Ministry costs of delivery and national initiatives where analysis
at the School level is not available
Excludes Private, Public, Partnerships
Regarding the capital spend, the Ministry’s asset management systems have been
upgraded at various points in the last 10 years, so the data used in preparing this
response has been sourced from multiple sources. Prior to 2013/14 accruals and
prepayments were on occasion col ected for multiple schools and projects
together, so it is possible there are minor variances in the capital spend at school
level due to the way the financials were processed in these earlier years.
State Integrated Schools have not been included as Capital funding is provided to
the proprietor, and some proprietors may own multiple schools.
