In addition to direct expenditure, the share of administration costs allocated to the Communities and Local Government portfolio is £16m. This gives a total net expenditure of £11,132m.
Explanation of Major Variances greater than £3m:
Note 1 £10m of accrued funding in relation to the backdated 2018-19 element of the Teachers Pay award which will not be paid until 2019-20. £6m of additional funding for Dumfries and Galloway Council's waste services, following the recent termination of Dumfries and Galloway Council's waste services contract with Renewi PLC.
Note 2 £8m of additional Housing receipts. £3m of miscellaneous minor underspends across a range of programmes.
Note 3 Higher than anticipated loan impairment in respect of IFRS 9 estimated expected credit loss assessment of financial assets at amortised cost.
Note 4 The underspend of £44m mostly relates to the demand-led nature of the housing loan schemes, including Mid Market Rent (£14m), Open Market Shared Equity (£6m), Infrastructure Loan Fund (£6m) and Home Energy Efficiency Programmes Scotland (HEEPS) (£6m). Further £16m due to re-profiling of Building Scotland Fund's projects where anticipated investment was unable to conclude before 31 March, partially offset by reclassification of housing receipts (£4m).
Remaining £1m consists of other minor variances across a number of programmes within the portfolio.
