The Privy Council Office has very little sources of revenues and generally, the non-tax revenues represent adjustments to prior's years expenditures. Fiscal year 2001-2002 was unusual as, about 50% of the non-tax revenues came from prior years' expenditures while the other half were revenues generated by the Policy Research Initiative Annual conference.

In order to alleviate additional expenses generated by this conference, PCO's spending authority was increased by an amount equivalent to the monies collected ($453,703).
