Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 10 Hansard (12 October) . . Page.. 2973 ..

MR MOORE (continuing):

something in the order of five days' waiting time, although there is no waiting list in the methadone program. That shows that the restructure is working already in a very effective way.

Event Management Services Contract

MR HARGREAVES: My question is to the Minister for Urban Services. Can the Minister confirm that the specifications for tender No. T99091 - - -

Ms Carnell: He knows that one.

MR HARGREAVES: Do be quiet. You are starting to bore me. Can the Minister confirm that the specifications for tender No. T99091, for the supply of event management services for Canberra's New Year's Eve festivities, contained a mandatory requirement for the successful tenderer to raise $250,000 in corporate sponsorship?

MR SMYTH: Mr Speaker, I do not have the specifications with me. I will get a copy and get back to the member.

MR HARGREAVES: That is the sort of response I expected, not the idiocy that I received before. My supplementary question is: Can the Minister say, after he has done all the research, whether that requirement, if it did in fact exist, was dropped from the contract signed by the Sydney company which won the contract, A Reserve Entertainment, and, if so, why? Was this fundamental change to tender specifications communicated to all parties who had acquired copies of the tender documentation and were considering bids? If not, why not?

Mr Humphries: How is he supposed to know if he has taken the question on notice?

MR HARGREAVES: He can be a responsible Minister and find out.

MR SMYTH: I will find out for the member.

Ms Carnell: I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper, Mr Speaker.

Community Care Support Services

MR MOORE: I have just been given the information that I said I would provide to Mr Wood. That letter will go out tomorrow to people who definitely will not be getting funding under the ISP process and those people will be referred by Community Connections t other agencies. Thirty or so applicants identified as having very high needs will be advised by the end of this month.



MR SPEAKER: For the information of members, I present reports of study trips undertaken by Mr Corbell to Sydney between 18 and 20 June 1998 and by Ms Tucker to Adelaide in November 1998.
