Appointments are determined by an assessment panel which assesses the applications and provides me with recommendations. In the most recent recruitment process, the panel comprised of a senior representative from LPP and the Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate, and the acting Chair of the FCC. JACS consults on the proposed recommendations with the Office for Women, the Community Participation Group and the Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs. As the FCC is not a statutory body, Assembly Standing Committee consultation is not required.
Following my agreement and Cabinet endorsement, I sign the instrument of appointment. Candidates are appointed to the FCC on the commencement date stated in the instrument. JACS then sends letters to applicants notifying them of the outcome of the selection process. Lastly, appointees are asked to sign the ACT Boards and Committees Code of Conduct, Conflict of Interest and background declaration forms.
*Records within LPP indicate these individuals have been FCC members since at least 2002. Further records outside of LPP would need to be obtained at financial cost in order to determine whether these individuals were members prior to 2002, and were unable to be obtained in time for provision of this response.
