Department of Immigration and Border Protection: Staff Uniforms

(Question No 1577)

Mr Conroy asked the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection, in writing, on 12 October 2015:

In respect of the $19,901.93 tender to ID Warehouse for 'Provision of Australian Border Force Lanyards and Identification Cards' (CN3283379),

(a) can he provide details of:

   (i) the country of manufacture,

   (ii) the number of products ordered,

   (iii) the cost per item unit, and

   (iv) any other details about manufacture and/or cost, and

(b) how will these products enhance the operation of the Australian Border Force.

Mr Dutton: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

As part of the establishment of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (the Department) and the Australian Border Force, new identification cards were required for branding purposes.

The tender related to the purchase of 9000 Australian Border Force Lanyards at an approximate cost of $1.40 per lanyard and 40 rolls of holographic security card laminate at an approximate cost of $200.00 per roll. The products were manufactured in the People's Republic of China by a security product company based in the United States of America.

The purchased products form part of the security features within the updated identity cards used by the Department and Australian Border Force officers.
