The Government will provide $112.2 million over five years to the four Parliamentary Departments and to the Department of Finance to support capital works and some recurrent funding.

Capital works will address critical failures and long term under investment identified in the Building Condition Assessment Report for Parliament House commissioned in the 2014‑15 Budget.

This will be addressed through the strategic assets management plan. Provision for this capital funding has already been included in the forward estimates.
