Answers to questions

Government office building (Question No 1696)

Mr Seselja asked the Chief Minister, upon notice, on 16 August 2011:

In relation to the answer to question on notice No E11 088, can the Chief Minister provide the updated list of directorates and agencies that will be moving into the Government Office Block and the corresponding number of staff for each.

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

As previously advised in the answer to question on notice No E11-088, the matter relating to prospective tenants for the new Government Office will be reconsidered once the new Government structure is in place and has been operating successfully for a period of time. Given that the project will not be tendered to the market for some time, it is prudent to delay the final tenant composition closer to that time so that the latest available information is reflected in the contract documents.

In so saying, it is reasonable to assume that the information provided on p120 of the Statement of Requirements is still relevant, recognising the changes in Government structure and transfers of some agencies between Directorates.

Government office building (Question No 1697)

Mr Seselja asked the Chief Minister, upon notice, on 16 August 2011:

(1) In relation to the answer to question on notice No E11-115 regarding the proposed Government Office Block which stated that it is proposed that the shortfall be accommodated in Nara House which has been re-leased until 2020 and other leased accommodation, will the staff accommodated in Nara House occupy the current 17.9 square metres per person; if not, what area, per person, will the staff occupy.

(2) Will a reconfiguration need to occur to reduce the area per person occupancy; if so, will there be any costs.

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

(1) Nara House currently accommodates the Directorates of Chief Minister and Cabinet, Treasury, Economic Development (ACT Gambling and Racing Commission, Business and Industry Development) and Community Services (artsACT). It is proposed that the existing fit-out and workplace density would remain in its current configuration until the occupancy of the new building in 2017. After the relocation of Nara Centre staff to the new building, it is proposed the Nara Centre will be refitted, where possible, with a workplace configuration and density consistent with that of the new building.
