occurring, (m) number of contracts with a permission or non permission clause for subcontracting and (n) number of contracts requiring award usage for subcontractors.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

a), b), c) These details can be found in the Department of Disability Housing and Community Services Annual Report for the 2005-2006 financial year pages 273-282.

d), e), f), g) h) i) j) k) l) m) n)

After careful consideration of the questions, and advice provided by my Department, I have determined that the information sought is not in an easily retrievable form, and that to collect and assemble the information sought solely for the purpose of answering the question would be a major task, requiring a considerable diversion of resources. In this instance, I do not believe that it would be appropriate to divert resources from the provisions of direct services to clients, for the purposes of answering the Member's question.

Government—contractors

(Question No 1411b)

Mr Berry asked the Deputy Chief Minister, upon notice, on 23 November 2006 (redirected to the Acting Minister for Health):

In relation to consultants, contractors and labour hire firms for the financial year 2005-2006, could the Minister provide for each portfolio they are responsible for the (a) number of contracts, (b) number of consultants, (c) number of contractors, (d) number of labour hire firms, (e) number of contracts containing labour hire component, (f) number of contracts with no labour hire component, (g) types of services provided, (h) number of contracts needing extension after 2006, (i) numbers of each type of contract used, for example, standard, schedule of fees, quote/lump sum, invoice and other, (j) number of services outsourced (i) whole, (ii) in part or (iii) unidentified, (k) number of contracts directing appropriate award usage, (l) number of contracts where there is subcontracting occurring, (m) number of contracts with a permission or non permission clause for subcontracting and (n) number of contracts requiring award usage for subcontractors.

Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

Details for contractors and consultants over $20,000 as required under the ACT Government annual reporting guidelines can be found in the Department of Health's Annual Report for the 2005-2006 financial year pages 250 - 257.

After careful consideration of the questions, and advice provided by ACT Health, I have determined that the information sought is not in an easily retrievable form, and that to collect and assemble the information sought solely for the purpose of answering the question would be a major task, requiring a considerable diversion of resources. In this instance, I do not believe that it would be appropriate to divert resources from the provisions of direct services to clients, for the purposes of answering the Member's question.
