Public Accounts—Standing Committee

Report 8—government response

MR STANHOPE (Ginninderra—Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Business and Economic Development, Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Minister for the Environment, Water and Climate Change, Minister for the Arts): For the information of members, I present the following paper, which relates to a report that was presented to the Assembly on 14 December 2006:

Public Accounts—Standing Committee—Report 8—Review of Auditor-General's Report No 5 of 2004: Leave Management—Government response.

I ask for leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MR STANHOPE: Mr Speaker, the Auditor-General's performance audit report No 5 of 2004 on leave management presented the results of a performance audit on whether leave management practices implemented by ACT government entities were compliant with certified agreements, legislation and government and agency policy. The audit report was presented to the Assembly on 3 August 2004.

This report was referred to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts, which sought and received a government submission in relation to the audit report. The committee examined the issues raised by the Auditor-General in relation to leave management and the government's submission and, in November 2006, the committee presented to the Assembly its report No 8, Review of Auditor-General's Report No 5 of 2004, which included five recommendations.

As noted by the committee, since the original presentation of the Auditor-General's report and the government's response, the implementation of a new whole-of-government human resource management system "Chris21"and establishment of the shared services centre has occurred. Following consideration of the committee's recommendations, I am pleased to present the government's response to the committee's report, which either agrees or agrees in principle to four of the recommendations and notes the last of the recommendations.
