Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1998 Week 8 Hansard (29 October) . . Page.. 2534 ..

Mr Moore (continuing):

(d) Directors of the company are listed as:

James Ian Howie

Margaret Lynette Howie (Company Secretary)

Jason Andrew Howie

(e) There are no ACT residents listed as Directors of the company.


Kincare Community Service Limited is currently recruiting staff in the ACT and will establish an ACT office to run the service in the ACT.


ACT HACC funds will be acquitted against service provided in the ACT under the terms and conditions of the ACT government purchase contract which identifies quantity, price and quality indicators. Under output based funding no distinction is made as to the specific purposes to which funding is applied. Obviously, most agencies would apply part of their funding to administration.


Any funds applied to administration will support the provision of services in the ACT.


The government uses tendering to ensure that services purchased represent the highest quality and best value for money for the ACT giving the highest level of service for ACT citizens. Kincare Community Services Limited was judged by the tender evaluation panels to be the leading contender against published selection criteria in this case. This does not indicate that the government views the community services sector in the ACT to be lacking in any aspect. Rather, the decision to award the tender to Kincare Community Service Limited is a result of an open tender process and brings an additional service provider to the ACT which will encourage competition and increase consumer choice in the ACT.
