Mr Speaker (Mr Rattenbury): The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) The annual leave entitlements of Secretariat staff are the same as the entitlements of most other staff employed under the Public Sector Management Act 1994 and are set out in the ACT Legislative Assembly Secretariat Enterprise Agreement 2010 - 2011. Clause F7.12 of that agreement specifies that:

Employees are encouraged to use their annual leave in the year that it accrues, and to this end should discuss their leave intentions with their manager/supervisor as soon as practicable.

Other provisions in section F7 of that agreement place certain obligations on staff and on Secretariat managers including where several years of annual leave entitlements are accrued but have not been taken. Secretariat policy and practice recognises that, in practical terms, there are always some staff who can not, or do not, use their leave in the same year as it accrues. Secretariat managers receive periodic reports of the leave balances of their staff and are asked to make specific plans where staff have balances in excess of 40 days (2 years worth).

(2) Staff do not lose their annual leave entitlements if they do not take leave.

(3) The quantum of annual leave liability for Secretariat staff at 31 December 2010 was:

(a) 7,208 hours; and

(b) $368,773.

Budget—program management and funding

(1) What programs are managed and/or funded within each output under each output class for the ACT Executive, as listed in Budget Paper 4 for the 2010-2011 Budget.

(2) If no output or output classes, can the Minister list the programs applicable for the ACT Executive.

(3) What is the budgeted cost for each program for 2010-2011.

(4) How much was spent on each program during the period 1 July 2010 to 31 December 2010.

(5) What was the budgeted full-time equivalent (FTE) staffing for each program for 2010-2011.

(6) What was the actual FTE staffing for each program as at 31 December 2010.

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

The ACT Executive does not have any outputs and does not manage any programs.
