(6) Yes. ACTPLA's Chief Executive Financial Instructions place an obligation on travellers to ensure that Frequent Flyer Points accrued as a result of travel or accommodation paid for by the ACTPS are redeemed for official travel. With one exception no individual traveller during the period had accrued sufficient Points to enable redemption for official travel. The exception was an officer for whom no suitable flight was available through the Frequent Flyer redemption scheme.
