5. There is no predetermined number at this point. To assist in shaping and realigning the workforce to support the new business model and to ensure a workforce that is affordable, Access Canberra has sought expressions of interest from its officers in relation to a voluntary redundancy.

In undertaking this program, Access Canberra will keep the long term interests of its business at the forefront of considerations when agreeing to offer a Voluntary Redundancy (VR) to an officer ensuring critical capability and knowledge as well as workforce diversity is retained.

6.There is no predetermined number at this point. It is therefore not possible to reasonably predict forecasted costs however the average cost of redundancies over the past three years has been approximately $9,000,000.00 which provides some guidance. The full impact of the implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme may result in higher numbers of voluntary redundancies than previous years, however this will depend on the success of redeployment and other staff management strategies.
