Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 3 Hansard (17 March) . .
MR WALL: Minister, how many service providers have indicated to you that a reimbursement will be required so far?
MS BURCH: I do not have that information available. I could say that it was very fluid in response. It is the number of clients, it is the service providers and, indeed, their own capacity to manage their cash flow until the plans go through. There is the matter of the client going into the NDIA, the plan being approved, the plan being activated and then the receipt being issued—the invoice being issued and paid.
So it is a complicated process. I am happy to come back with some advice, but I do not know if we can determine the number of clients, the number of services. But I am happy to come back with the information that I can provide.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Ms Lawder.
MS LAWDER: Minister, how many service providers did you budget for as requiring a reimbursement?
MS BURCH: All the service providers that had clients that were going to transition into the NDIS. We knew that this would be a result—that, with the bulk of the funding agreement currently in place with these service providers, as the clients moved to the NDIS the cash flow would change and the money would come from the NDIS.
MS LAWDER: Minister, what is the anticipated value of the total reimbursement?
MS BURCH: I do not have that information available. If it can be tied in to the other information, I will bring back what I can.
ACT Ambulance Service—alleged bullying
MR SMYTH: My question is to the minister for emergency services. Minister, the former emergency services minister announced a review of the ACT Ambulance Service culture in October 2013, following allegations of bullying and a toxic management culture. When will you be releasing the report of this review?
MS BURCH: Shortly.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.
MR SMYTH: Minister, will this report be released in its entirety?
MS BURCH: The report that I am planning to put out will be released in its entirety.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Doszpot.
