Relocation of Sport and Recreation ACT
(Question No 406)
Mr Stefaniak asked the Minister for Sport, Racing and Gaming, upon notice, on 4 March 2003:
In relation to relocating Sport and Recreation ACT from Tuggeranong to Civic:
1. How much did it cost to relocate Sport and Recreation ACT;
2. Will Sport and Recreation ACT's new location save the government money? If so, how much. If not, why not and why move;
3. How much was the lease/rent at Homeworld and can you provide comparative figures for the lease/rent at the Nara Centre;
4. Has Sport and Recreation ACT lost any employees that weren't content with the office relocation. If so, is this having any impact on the working capabilities of Sport and Recreation ACT.
Mr Quinlan: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
1. The total cost for the relocation of Sport and Recreation ACT was $20,500.
2. With regard to rental savings, the answer is yes. Sport and Recreation ACT was absorbed into existing accommodation in the CMD portfolio. CMD now pays less rent as it occupies less accommodation space (a reduction of 463.42m2) equating to savings of $121,879 per annum for rent and approximately $18,536 per annum for outgoings.
