The total capital allocation for my Department in 2018 was €95.208 million, inclusive of €7.7 million capital carryover from 2017. The provisional capital outturn for 2018 is €95.115 million. Therefore, there has been virtually a full spend on the capital programme, with 99.9% of the capital allocation utilised. This has ensured investment right across the policy areas of my Department, including additional investment in areas such as libraries development, the local improvement scheme and community facilities.

The table below details the capital allocation and provisional outturn by programme in respect of my Department for 2018; including the capital carryover of €7.7 million from 2017.

These figures remain provisional, and a provisional appropriation account will be submitted to the Comptroller and Auditor General by the 31st March 2018. The final audited account will then be published in September 2019.
