NOTE:
  1. Commitments are GST inclusive where relevant.
  2. The Department's capital commitments for property, plant and equipment relate to the Therapeutic Goods Administration's information technology equipment.
  3. Operating leases included are effectively non-cancellable and comprise:
 Nature of leases   General description of leasing arrangement 
 Lease for office accommodation  Lease payments are subject to reviews in accordance with the lease agreement. The reviews range from bi-annually to annually over the lease term and are either a predetermined increase or reviewed against market rentals at the time.  Where offered, lease renewal options range from one to five years.
A number of the Department's office accommodation leases contain lease payments that are subject to increases in accordance with movements in market rents.  These contingent rent payments are not included in the commitment schedule as their value cannot be reliably estimated.
Computer equipment The Department has entered into a contractual arrangement to outsource the provision of IT infrastructure to 30 June 2015.
Office services The Department has entered into a contractual arrangement to outsource the provision of office services, including file management and storage to 30 June 2015.
Security The Department has entered into a contractual arrangement to outsource the provision of building security to 28 February 2015.

The above schedule should be read in conjunction with the accompanying notes.
