Recurrent expenditure—domestic services
Health, Standard 01/03/2005
The costs measured in Australian dollars of all domestic services including electricity, other fuel and power, domestic services for staff, accommodation and kitchen expenses but not including salaries and wages, food costs or equipment replacement and repair costs, for a financial year.
Record values up to hundreds of millions of dollars. Rounded to the nearest whole dollar.
Gross expenditure should be reported with no revenue offsets, except for inter-hospital transfers.
The possibility of separating fuel, light and power from domestic services which would bring the overall non-salary recurrent expenditure categories closer to the old Hospitals and Allied Services Advisory Council categories was briefly considered by the Resources Working Party but members did not hold strong views in this area.
