Disability ACT—policy framework

(Question No 1870)

Mrs Burke asked the Minister for Disability and Community Services, upon notice, on 14 February 2008:

Given that in March 2007 the Department commissioned a mid-term evaluation of Disability ACT's policy framework, 'Future Directions: 2004-08' and that in the 2006-07 annual report on page 15 it states that the report was due to the Chief Executive in late 2007, can the Minister provide advice on whether this report has now been publicly released.

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

(1) The Future Directions Evaluation Team finalised its report in January 2008

(2) The report has not been publicly released.

Public service—consulting services

(Question No 1872)

Mrs Burke asked the Minister for Disability and Community Services, upon notice, on 14 February 2008:

(1) How much was spent on consulting services for your department in the 2007-08 financial year to date;

(2) Can the Minister provide details of the individual contracts as outlined in part (1) as to (a) who were they awarded to, (b) at what cost, (c) for what purpose and (d) how were they awarded, for example, by tender or with certificate of exemption.

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

I am not prepared to authorise the use of the very considerable resources that would be involved in providing the detailed information required to answer the Member's question.

Information regarding Disability and Community Services use of consultants is publicly available in its annual reports, with the total amount paid to contractors and consultants shown in the notes to the financial statements. There is also a table listing all significant contractors and consultants by name.
