mechanisms. They allow employees to perform their duties more effectively and provide prompt payment for suppliers. Types of use include:

Field officers needing immediate capability to pay for supplies;

Officers regularly travelling on Government business;

Internet or other payments for training courses, seminars, subscriptions; and

Foreign currency transactions.

(3) Please see attached.

(4) I am advised that the Territory’s financial system does not distinguish between credit card transactions and other payment transactions. Monthly credit card statements must be manually analysed in order to answer this question. Given this time consuming requirement, it is not considered reasonable use of the agency’s limited resources to answer this question for more than two financial years. As a result, total credit card expenditure for 2007-08 and 2006-07 is not provided. Please see attached for 2008-09 and 2009-10 to date information.

(5) Please see attached.

(6) Please see attached, which includes meals whilst travelling on official business.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

1. Australian Capital Tourism currently holds 10 credit cards.

2. In accordance with the Chief Executive Financial Instructions, credit cards are used where Australian Capital Tourism officers are required to make purchases within their delegations urgently or where it is inconvenient to expect the officer to purchase goods and services through normal channels.

3. The average amount spent each month on each credit card currently held in Australian Capital Tourism is shown in the table below.
