The administration costs that can be directly allocated to portfolios amount to £108m.

Due to organisational restructuring and new areas of government programme activity in several portfolios, prior year comparative figures for the apportionment of administration costs are not available.

Explanation of Major Variances greater than £3m:

Note 1 Variance includes £2m due to the rephasing of the settlement of dilapidation claims and £2m due to the introduction of the Smarter Workplaces programme in several public bodies now planned to take place in 2017-18.
Note 2 Variance includes £3m of expenditure on the replacement of the electronic records management system reprofiled to 2017-18, £2m following the review of the Streamlining Corporate Systems project progress and £1m of savings on contract price for IT equipment for the roll out of the Smarter Workplaces programme.

Remaining £5m consists of other minor variances across a number of programmes within the portfolio.
