Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 4 Hansard (18 April) . . Page.. 1096 ..

MRS CARNELL (continuing):

executive officers within the Chief Minister's Department, these three officers being the Executive Director, Office of Public Administration and Management; the Executive Director, Office of Cabinet and Policy Coordination; and the Director, Government Relations.

These contracts are tabled in accordance with section 31A and section 79 of the Act, which require the tabling of all executive contracts. You will recall that on 29 February I presented six executive contracts. Other contracts will be tabled as they are progressively made. In tabling these contracts, I would like to bring to the attention of members the content of the performance agreements. With the exception of the contract in respect of the Director, Government Relations, at this stage all other contracts contain interim performance agreements only. The interim agreements are based on the material developed as part of the recent selection processes. The documents identify the chief executives' primary responsibilities, the organisational environment and the key accountabilities. They do not include key timeframes or target dates. The use of these interim agreements reflects the complexity of the task of developing meaningful performance agreements. Tabling of detailed performance agreements will be completed only after I have had the opportunity to meet with the chief executives and their relevant Ministers. I expect to finalise the agreements to enable tabling of the variations at the end of the next sitting period.

As a separate issue, I would like to alert members to the issue of privacy of personal information that may be contained in these or future contracts and agreements. I ask members to deal sensitively with the information and to respect the privacy of individual executives.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
