(a) The original 2003-04 DEET Capital Works Program was $28.6m. This program had approved variations throughout the 2003-04 year that resulted in a total program increase of $20.3m giving DEET a new 2003-04 total Capital Works Program of $48.9m. The major additions to the program in 2003-04 were the Desert Knowledge Centre (net increase of $11.5m) and redevelopment of the Darwin High School ($6.2m).

    (b) The 2004-05 revote is greater than the initial 2003-04 program because of the approved addition of items to the 2003-04 program.
