DVA-funded expenditure to be to be reported only once and for the specific statistical unit level at which the expenditure is available.
Where DVA-funded expenditure could be allocated to more than one level it is important to allocate it to the single most appropriate statistical unit level to avoid the possible of counting the expended funds more than once. For example, funding provided for service delivery expenditure should be reported at the lowest statistical unit level possible only.
