These indicators are published on the Australian Bureau Statistics (ABS) website (www.abs.gov.au) under Catalogue Numbers 6401.0 for the CPI and 6345.0 for the WPI.

Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, upon notice, on 26 September 2007:
In relation to the Auditor-General's report into the Firelink project which observes in paragraph 1.9 that there were related costs that weren't included in the final figure, can the Minister advise what the total final costs of the Firelink project were, inclusive of Agency and Authority staff and finalisation of the contract with Australian Technology Information.
Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
As per the Auditor General's report some $592,000 was expended on a consultant for draft project management services mainly related to Firelink. To establish an accurate cost of associated agency overheads for day to day management, meetings, various contract issues would require extensive compilation.
