Government—senior executive service (Question No 2026)

Mr Smyth asked the Chief Minister, upon notice, on 16 February 2012:

(1) How many officers were employed in the senior executive service in the ACT Government as at 31 December 2011.

(2) How many officers were employed in the senior executive service in the ACT Government as at 30 June (a) 2006, (b) 2007, (c) 2008, (d) 2009, (e) 2010 and (f) 2011.

(3) In which agencies was there an increase in the number of officers in the senior executive service between 1 July 2006 and 31 December 2011.

(4) What was the increase in the number of officers in the senior executive service in each of the agencies referred to in part (3).

(5) In which agencies was there a decrease in the number of officers in the senior executive service between 1 July 2006 and 31 December 2011.

(6) What was the decrease in the number of officers in the senior executive service in each of the agencies referred to in part (5).

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

(1) There were 193 executives at 31 December 2011.

(2) The number of executives at 30 June each year were as follows:

Reporting Period Executives 2006 147 2007 155 2008 163 2009 172 2010 175 2011 188

The ratio of executive to non-executive staff in the ACTPS has been maintained at a broadly constant level of one executive for between 105 to 119 non-executive staff since 2006. By comparison, the APS ratios of SES to non-SES staff while also broadly constant over the same time period are double the ACTPS ratio at one SES for approximately 62 non-SES staff.

(3) There have been 13 notifications of Administrative Arrangements since 2006 resulting in a significant number of Machinery of Government transfers of officers, employees and unattached officers between agencies. This included executives.

As a result of these movements, it is not possible to provide meaningful figures on the increase and decrease of executives against a specific agency since 2006.

(4) Refer to 3 above.
