155 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 2010-11 Budget 2010-11 Estimate 2011-12 Budget $000 $000 $000 Resource Industry Development 73 071 77 525 71 691 Minerals and Energy 24 498 28 262 24 153 Primary Industry 38 473 39 330 36 360 Fisheries 10 100 9 933 11 178 Key Variations The Minerals and Energy output increases over 2010-11 mainly due to increased expenditure on Commonwealth funded projects, including $1.6 million for the Rum Jungle Rehabilitation Project and $1.5 million for the Renewable Remote Power Generation Program. In 2011-12 the output decreases due to reduced Commonwealth funding of $4.3 million to phase out the Renewable Remote Power Generation Program and the reprioritisation of programs within the agency, offset by an increase of $0.67million in line with the four-year Commonwealth funding agreement for the Rum Jungle Rehabilitation Project. The Primary Industry output decreases in 2011-12 as externally funded programs are yet to be finalised and due to the reprioritisation of programs within the agency, offset by an increase of $0.36 million for the repairs and maintenance program. The Fisheries output increases in 2011-12 due to an increase of $0.6 million from reprioritisation of programs within the agency and $1.2 million for the sustainable utilisation of the inshore marine resources program, offset by a decrease for externally funded programs yet to be negotiated for 2011-12 and a carryover in expenditure from 2009-10 to 2010-11 for the NT Fishing Industry Research Development Program.
