challenges with actually completing those and unfortunately those challenges have come to light. Indeed, as with the previous questions around infrastructure and construction costs and supply of construction materials, housing has been impacted by that as well.

For this term, or in fact over the last decade, spending on housing and housing growth and renewal in the ACT has been increasing every year. In this term of the government it continues to increase. In 2020-2021 Housing ACT spent $319 million on Housing ACT expenditure. In 2021-2022 we spent $331 million and in this financial year we spent $369 million. In the budget we have allocated $512 million for the next financial year.

Mr Davis: A point of order at the end of the question, Madam Speaker. Could I get the numbers of how many properties that has built?

MADAM SPEAKER: The question has been answered. A supplementary?

MR DAVIS: Yes, a supplementary.

How much money has the government spent so far this Assembly term, as opposed to appropriated—actually spent—on the purchase of new established properties from the private market? How many homes has that delivered?

MS BERRY: All of that data is point of time, so I will have to take that question on notice and provide information on where that program is up to.

MS CLAY: Minister, how much money has the ACT government made so far this term from the sale of public housing properties and how many properties has the government sold?

MS BERRY: Again, Madam Speaker, I will have to take that question on notice. Of course every home that is sold or demolished is replaced with one thousand new properties and in addition to that we intend to build on our stock of another 400 homes.

Government—human resources and information management system

MR CAIN: Madam Speaker, my question is to the Special Minister of State. Minister, the project to deliver a new human resources and learning management system has engaged 23 contractors since 2016. Will you table in this Assembly the business cases for this project and, if not, why not?

MR STEEL: I will take that on notice.

MR CAIN: Minister, will you table the project management plan?

MR STEEL: I will take that on notice.

MS CASTLEY: Was an off-the-shelf option for a new HR system considered by
the government?
