(1)The total of the ‘Administration Budget’ and ‘Near-cash in Resource DEL’ figures may well be greater than total resource DEL, due to the definitions overlapping.
(2)Capital DEL includes items treated as resource in Estimates and accounts but which are treated as Capital DEL in budgets.
(3)Depreciation, which forms part of Resource DEL, is excluded from the total DEL since capital DEL includes capital spending and to include depreciation of those assets would lead to double counting.

The change in the resource element of the DEL arises from a token increase in administration costs to bring to Parliament’s attention a reclassification of Ofgem’s expenditure in connection with environmental programmes from RfR2 to RfR1.

This change better reflects Ofgem’s responsibilities for the administration of environmental programmes, and it is therefore no longer appropriate to treat it as a separate RfR.

There is no change in the capital element of the DEL
