(6) How much money does the Minister estimate the project will save annually;

(7) Where will the Centre be located.

Mr Stanhope

: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) Shared Services is part of the Department of Treasury and came into existence as a result of Machinery of Government changes on 1 July 2006. It currently includes InTACT and Procurement Solutions. Post 1 February 2007 it will include divisions centred on finance, human resources, Records Services and Publishing.

(2) The Shared Services Centre will total approximately 900 staff come February 2007. This number includes approximately 350 human resources and finance staff, 450 InTACT staff, (including Records Services and Publishing), and l00 Procurement Solutions staff.

(3) The estimated costs for establishing the Shared Services Centre are:

(a) 2005-06- $0.137m; and

(b) 2006-07 -$1.338m (expenditure at the end of November 06)

(4) The implementation of the Shared Services initiative has required restructuring of human resources and finance services across the ACT Government. It is estimated that reductions in resourcing across all elements of finance and HR will total approximately 65 staff over two years. A very high percentage of this reduction is expected to be through natural attrition.

(5) Savings are expected to take effect from 1 February 2007.

(6) Table 5.2.16 (p99 2006-07 Budget Paper 3) identifies the Consolidated Savings by agency.

(7) The human resources and finance services elements of the Shared Services Centre will be located in Eclipse House levels 3 to 9 and on level 5, 40 Allara Street, Civic. The other elements of the Shared Services Centre (InTACT, Procurement Solutions and Records Services) will remain in their current locations.
