163 Department of Resources Outputs and Performance Output Group: Resource Industry Development Outcome: Profitable and sustainable resource-based industries supported by best practice environmental management advice. Output Group/Output 2011-12 Budget 2011-12 Estimate 2012-13 Budget $000 $000 $000 Resource Industry Development 71 691 77 894 69 012 Minerals and Energy 24 153 27 318 21 887 Primary Industry 36 360 39 533 36 014 Fisheries 11 178 11 043 11 111 Key Variations The Minerals and Energy output decrease of $5.4million in 2012-13 is due to decreased Commonwealth funding including $1.9million related to the Rum Jungle Rehabilitation Program and $3.8 million related to the phasing out of the Renewable Remote Power Generation Program, along with a net decrease of $0.6 million in revenue generated through fees and charges predominantly related to the transfer of the administration of offshore petroleum back to the Commonwealth. This is offset by a one-off $0.65million transfer in 2011-12 to capital appropriation for remediation works at the Mount Todd mine site and an increase of $0.18 million in 2012-13 in repairs and maintenance. The Primary Industry output decrease of $3.5 million relates to a reduction of $2.4million for externally funded programs finalising or yet to be negotiated for 2012-13 and a decrease of $1.2 million in repairs and maintenance for 2012-13 offset by an increase in revenue for water analysis testing. The Fisheries output marginal increase is the net effect of an increase of $0.5 million relating to the carry forward of funds for the NT Fishing Industry Research Development Program from 2011-12 to 2012-13, an increase of $1 million in the repairs and maintenance requirement, offset by a decrease of $1.2 million relating to one-off funding for the sustainable utilisation of the inshore marine resources program and a decrease of $0.2million for externally funded programs yet to be negotiated for 2012-13.
