In 2014/15 more work than was expected was carried out by the National Conservation Laboratory. The number of newly found taonga tūturu continue to increase. The varying length (sometimes multi years) and complexity of the treatment programmes for each taonga tūturu has made it difficult for the National Conservation Laboratory to estimate the total cost of treatment for each item and the annual charges relating to each item.

The original appropriation was $0.079 million for 2014/15. This was not sufficient to cover the total costs for 2014/15. Actual expenditure to 31 October was $0.129m. At the time the expense was incurred, although a process was underway to seek approval for the fiscally neutral adjustment, it was not approved before the end of October. It was subsequently approved and the expenditure to end of 30 June was not unappropriated.
