Sport—grants(Question No 713)

Mr Doszpot asked the Minister for Tourism, Sport and Recreation, upon notice, on 18 March 2010:

What sport grants programs are administered by the ACT government and what is the cost for administering each program.

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

The ACT Government has administered two designated sports grants programs in 2009/10: Sport and Recreation Grants Program (SRGP) and the National League Team Funding Program (NLTP).

The SRGP is coordinated from within the Client Services area of Sport and Recreation Services (SRS). An ASO5 FTE ($63,409) is responsible for program administration (among other duties). The system is supported by an on-line database/application system – service of this system cost $19,043 in 2009/10, with an additional one-off cost of $17,057 to migrate the database from an obsolete external provider onto the InTACT network.

The NLTP is also coordinated from within the Client Services area of SRS. An ASO6 FTE ($71,423) is responsible for program administration. It is estimated that administration of this program is approximately 20% of the duties of this role.
