Mr Smyth asked the Chief Minister, upon notice, on 13 March 2003:

In relation to the ACT Public Service:

(1) How many public servants have voluntarily left the ACT Public Service (a) to date this financial year, (b) in 2001-02;

(2) How many public servants have been offered redundancies in the ACT Public Service (a) to date this financial year, (b) in 2001-02;

(3) What was the number of ACT Public Servants for (a) the current day this financial year, (b) 2002-02, (c) 2000-01, (d) 1999-2000;

(4) How many additional Executives have been employed in the ACT Public Service from the number of employees as at June 30 2001 (a) to date this financial year, (b) in 2001-02;

(5) What was the total number of Executives in the ACT Public Service for (a) the current day this financial year, (b) 2001-02, (c) 2000-01, (d) 1999-2000.

Mr Stanhope: The answer to the Member's question is as follows:

(1) The number of public servants who have voluntarily left the ACT Public Service - (a) to date this financial year - 1052; and (b) in 2001-02 - 1701. This includes permanent and temporary staff who have left the Service through resignation, retirement, voluntary redundancy or transfer or promotion to the Australian Public Service. These figures are drawn from the PERSPECT HR system, which does not cover all agencies. As noted on page 5 of the Commissioner for Public Administration's State of the Service Report for 2001-02, this system covers (on 30 June 2002 figures) approximately 93% of the public service (ie those employed under the Public Sector Management Act 1994). The Commissioner's report provides details on separations in Chapter 8. The tables in that chapter relate only to permanent staff paid through the PESPECT system.

(2) Based on compilation of figures from ACT Public Service agencies, the number of public servants who have been offered redundancies in the ACT Public Service

(a) to date this financial year - 48; and (b) in 2001-02 - 121.

(3) The number of ACT Public Servants for (a) the current day this financial year - 14,839, (b) 2001-02 - 14,433, (c) 2000-01 - 13,716, (d) 1999-2000 - 13,375. These figures are drawn from the PERSPECT HR system which does not cover all Public Service staff. At 30 June 2002, there was 16247 staff in the ACT Public Service (including ACTION staff). Updated service-wide figures will be incorporated into the 2002-03 State of the Service Report.
