Emergency services-communications upgrade
(Question No 1256)
Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, upon notice, on Wednesday, 11 February 2004:
In relation to the upgrade of the emergency services communications system:
(1) What work has been completed on the upgrade of the emergency services communications system in the A.C.T.;
(2) As at 31 January how much of the $312,000 allocated to this project had been expended;
(3) What has been delivered for the money expended to date;
(4) How does the Government anticipate to spend $23.668m on this project by June 2007 when only $312,000 has been allocated this financial year.
Mr Wood: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
(1) The work to date has been to scope the project and recruit a project team. It was never anticipated that the actual procurement of the new capability could commence before the financial year 2004/05.
(2) As at 31 January 2004 expenditure was $6,350. Progress has been slower than anticipated due to the concurrent demands on the Emergency Services Bureau (ESB) staff arising from the McLeod Inquiry and the Coroner's Inquiry. Project staff have been recruited and expenditure will now accelerate rapidly.
