Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses (PESA) is the yearly publication of information on government spending. It brings together recent outturn data, estimates for the latest year, and spending plans for the rest of the current spending review period.
PESA is based on data from departmental budgets and total expenditure on services, or TES.
The budgeting framework deals with spending within central government department budgets, which is how the government plans and controls spending. Total expenditure on services (TES) represents the spending required to deliver services – what is known as the capital expenditure of the public sector.
The following corrections were made on 21 July 2016 to the PESA release. These changes have only been made to the underlying excel tables in this command paper. The changes are as follows:
in tables 8.3 and 8.5, total public corporations’ capital expenditure on services in 2015-16 should be £5,515 million rather than £6,434 million; accounting adjustments in 2015-16 should be £11,763 million rather than £10,844 million; and in table 8.5 gross capital procurement in 2015-16 should be £7,480 million rather than £8,399 million. This is to ensure that Wales HRA expenditure reported in these tables does not include the element of local government spending used to finance the reform of Wales HRA. Total public corporations’ expenditure remains unchanged
chapter 9 tables of this release have been revised. The revisions cover the period 2012-13 to 2014-15. Due to an input error relating to ‘non-identifiable expenditure’, figures for this category plus ‘total expenditure on services’ and ‘accounting adjustments’ have been corrected. Country and regional figures are not impacted by this minor correction
