Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 2 Hansard (16 February) . .

Page.. 377..

Auditor-General. We received the government's response to the report. As a consequence we have come up with two recommendations. The first recommendation is:

The Committee recommends that the ACT Government should give further consideration to a whole-of-government approach to debt management—specifically, in the first instance it should undertake a strategic whole-of-government review of debt management arrangements as a means of determining a framework for such an approach and its subsequent implementation.

Recommendation 2 is:

The Committee recommends that the ACT Government inform the ... Assembly by the last sitting day in May 2016 as to the parameters for its review of existing debt management processes—with particular reference to: (i) whether the discussion paper being developed by Shared Services for the purposes of 'commencing dialogue on the matter with the directorates' is complete—and if not, expected completion date; (ii) detail on specific review milestones; and (iii) expected timeline for completion.

I would like to thank members for their assistance in putting this report together. Ms Fitzharris was just a humble member of the Assembly then, before her elevation. We thank her for her assistance, as well as, of course, Ms Porter and Ms Lawder. A number of secretaries helped during the period. I think Dr Cullen was there when we started. Ms Harkins took over for a brief time and Dr Cullen is now back in the position to help us complete the process. With that I commend the report to the Assembly.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Report 23

MR SMYTH (Brindabella) (10.08): I present the following report:

Public Accounts—Standing Committee—Report 23—Review of Auditor-General's Report No. 7 of 2015: Sale of ACTTAB, dated 2 February 2016, together with a copy of the extracts of the relevant minutes of proceedings.

I move:

That the report be noted.

The Auditor-General decided to do an audit of the sale of ACTTAB. It came about in order to provide an independent opinion to the Assembly on the probity of the sale of ACTTAB. There were a number of recommendations in the report. In fact there was one large recommendation that had four parts to it. The auditor found that there were issues with risk management, evaluation criteria, the probity plan and probity adviser role, and documentation and record-keeping as required. That report was tabled in this place on 26 June last year.
