Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 8 Hansard (24 August) . . Page.. 3715..
CMCD and Comcare regularly review Comcare's service delivery performance against the service level standards and timeframes within the Charter. CMCD manages the relationship with Comcare and monitoring of the agreement through:
* regular fortnightly meetings with Comcare's allocated ACTPS Relationship Manager; and
* quarterly meetings with Comcare's senior management responsible for the provision of claims management services.
6) The Plan and the ACT Whole of Government Managing Injury and Illness in the Workplace policy were issued subsequent to the establishment of the Charter. CMCD is currently in process of renegotiating the Charter to ensure that it is reflective of current ACT Government policies and processes.
7) The purpose of section 11 of the Charter is to ensure that, in signing a partnership agreement with Comcare, the Territory was not precluded from giving appropriate consideration to its future workers' compensation insurance arrangements. The clause recognises the obligations on the ACT Government to administer its financial commitments and obligations based on the principles of responsible fiscal management.
8) There are no current plans for the ACTPS to exit the Comcare scheme. As part of the Territory's responsibility for periodic review of its insurance arrangements, a number of alternative insurance options for the Territory have been identified:
* maintaining the Territory's workers' compensation insurance coverage under the SRC Act;
* establishing coverage for ACTPS workers under the Workers Compensation Act 1951 (the WC Act) (either as self-insurer or standard employer); or
* establishing an ACTPS specific workers' compensation scheme.
