(Question No 1393)
Mr Smyth asked the Minister for Urban Services, upon notice:
In relation to:
1) Why did the Government commission a feasibility study looking at domestic animal services;
2) What advice did the Government receive as part of this $7,000 study undertaken by Fulton Technology.
Mr Wood: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
1) Fulton Technology was requested to undertake a review of the Domestic Animal Services' (DAS) Dog Licensing and Management System database (DOGS) in 2003. The review focused on a 'gap analysis' of DOGS. A 'gap analysis' examines the existing system and the ideal system. The difference (or gap) between the two provides the scope for improvement.
2) The Fulton Technology Gap Analysis highlighted a number of improvements, which would assist in improved DAS operations.
