The administration costs that can be directly allocated to portfolios amount to £80m (2017-18: £76m).

Explanation of Major Variances greater than £3m:

Note 1 Underspend mainly due to delays in recruiting staff to support existing and new priority activities.

Note 2 Lower than anticipated accommodation costs mainly due to settlement of dilapidation costs.

Note 3 Additional expenditure on IT system support costs.

Note 4 Lower than anticipated depreciation of the Scottish Government's assets.

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