Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2019 Week 07 Hansard (Thursday, 1 August 2019) . . Page.. 2707 ..


(1) In relation to the answer given on 3 May 2019 to a question without notice taken on notice about the timing of variations to service funding agreements with non-government organisations, and the answer given on 1 May 2019 to questions on notice No 2351, does the work referred to in the answer to the question without notice taken on notice amount to a general review of service funding agreements.

(2) If the answer to part (1) is yes, will the Minister clarify or correct the answer given to questions on notice No 2351.

(3) If the answer to part (1) is no, to what does the work refer.

(4) If the answer to part (2) is no, why.

Ms Fitzharris: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) No, the work being undertaken by the ACT Health Directorate (ACTHD), and referred to in the 3 May 2019 answer, involves normal administrative updates to the agreements. This would not normally be called a ‘review of funding arrangements’.

(2) Not applicable.

(3) The work referred to includes ensuring dates, amounts and other relevant details contained within funding agreements are up-to-date. ACTHD is also actively consulting with providers to answer questions about their agreement and confirm funding amounts.

(4) Not applicable.
