Treasury Board Government-Wide Initiatives Vote (TB Vote 10) Items

This table provides a comprehensive summary of all TB Vote 10 allocations for 2005-2006.      
TB Vote 10 is a central vote relating to government-wide initiatives. This vote is used to supplement other  
appropriations in support of the implementation of strategic management initiatives across the public service of  
Canada. A total of $16,050,000 was approved in Appropriation Act No. 2, 2005-2006 for these purposes.      
Prior to the dissolution of Parliament for the purposes of a general election, some $7,431,253 was allocated from  
Vote 10 to departments for the purposes listed below in section A.      
Given the requirement that no appropriation be available from which a payment could be made, any funds remaining  
in central votes had to be depleted prior to the issuance of Special Warrants. Therefore, the remaining balance of  
$8,618,747 was allocated in the initial Special Warrant period, on a first come, first served basis against      
organizational requests for funding. The departments receiving funding through TB Vote 10 in lieu of Special  
Warrants are listed below in section B. Accordingly, a total of $16,050,000 was allocated as follows:
