Is there a plan for disposal of the hardware and software relating to the dumped Firelink Project; if not, why not; if so, how much of the original $4.5 million purchase price will be recouped.

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

The Emergency Services Agency has written down assets as $1.68m hardware in the 2006-2007 budget. Software and development costs are not recoverable. The Government Solicitor's Office and Australian Technology Information Pty Ltd are currently working on final resolution of contract price and disposal of assets following the notification of termination of the contract on 20 July 2007. Any residual items of hardware and software will be disposed of by standard government policy and procedures.

Roads—overdue unpaid fines

(Question No 1632)

Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 21 August 2007:

(1) Does the ACT Government currently have any overdue unpaid fines owed to it from interstate drivers caught speeding and/or running red lights; if so, how much is owed;

(2) Does the ACT Government have any arrangements with other States to (a) recover money owed by interstate drivers in unpaid fines and/or (b) deduct points from the driver.

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

(1) Yes. Dating back to 1980 there are 18,929 unpaid speeding and red light infringements issued to interstate drivers. The value of these infringements is $3.805m.

(2) TAMS has recently written to the NSW Roads and Traffic Authority about the possible introduction of arrangements to recover money owed by interstate drivers for unpaid traffic infringements in each other's jurisdictions. As almost 13,500 of the outstanding infringements were issued to NSW drivers, TAMS will pursue these negotiations with NSW before other states.
