Note 28: Reporting of Outcomes

The Department uses an Activity Based Costing System to determine the attribution of its shared items.  This system was based on an Output Pricing Review conducted in 1999-2000.  The basis of attribution in the table below is consistent with the basis used for the 2009-10 Budget.
