Statement from CSIRO spokesperson

Astronomy science and facilities in CSIRO are supported by appropriation from government and additional funding including from the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS).

Whilst CSIRO hasn't yet received formal confirmation of NCRIS funding for 2016/17, we anticipate being able to maintain astronomy operations through the year based on continuing funding.

NCRIS funding has not yet been allocated for 2017/18 and beyond.
