ACT public service—contractors
(Question No 312)
Mr Coe asked the Chief Minister, upon notice, on 9 June 2017:
(1) How many consultants or contractors are employed in positions in the ACT Public Service.
(2) Is the appointment of consultants or contractors at odds with the Government’s commitment, set out in the ACT Public Service Recruitment Guidelines, to minimise the use of consultants/contractors in the ACT Public Service.
(3) Is it necessary for prior approval to be obtained before the process to appoint a consultant or contractor is commenced; if so, describe the process to obtain approval.
(4) Is there any liaison with, or notification to, external bodies such as UnionsACT or the Community and Public Sector Union, before a consultant or contractor is engaged.
(5) Who is responsible for approving the engagement of consultants or contractors in the ACT Public Service.
Mr Barr: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
(1) Consultants and contractors are not employees of the ACTPS, are engaged on a contract for service and details of those personnel may be contained in the individual contract terms. This information is not held centrally, but by individual directorates.
