Please note that a site purchase may involve two payments: deposit and final amount, which may be spread across different years. 

In addition the total site and property management expenditure includes the direct cost of site acquisitions as well as ancillary costs such as the procurement of valuations and other property related costs. 

The total number of sites acquired in a given year includes sites which transferred to my Department under the Redress scheme.
