In addition to direct expenditure, the share of administration costs allocated to the Economy, Jobs and Fair Work Portfolio is £12m. This gives a total net expenditure of £332m.

Explanation of Major Variances greater than £3m:

Note 1 £11m due to lower than anticipated take-up of demand-led capital grant schemes such as Renewable Energy Capital, Innovative Energy Storage, Low Energy Challenge Fund, District Heating, Community And Renewable Energy Scheme (CARES) and Scotland's Energy Efficiency Programme (SEEP) partially offset by additional expenditure on Hydrogen Buses, Renewable Energy Investment Fund, Research and Development and other capital projects within SG. Further £4m as a result of lower than anticipated take-up of demand-led current grant schemes in Energy Efficiency, Low Carbon Economy and Hydrocarbons partially offset by additional expenditure on Renewable Energy projects. £4m following public sector loans reclassification. £3m due to a repayment in respect of the mixed plastics recycling fund with further £3m of planned savings in Knowledge Transfer and in Innovation and Investment Hubs which will be allocated to new hubs with additional £1m in other minor variances.
Note 2 £2m of savings relating to Community Jobs Scotland with additional £2m in other minor variances.
Note 3 £16m of net costs relating to the closure of legacy European Structural Funds programmes.
Note 4 Adjustments to provisions for ESF schemes and fair value adjustments relating to foreign exchange rate movements.
Note 5 £4m following public sector loans reclassification partially offset by £1m in other minor variances.

Remaining £2m consists of other minor variances across a number of programmes within the portfolio.
