Department of Education: Departmental and Agency Staff Global Roaming

(Question No. 1936)


Mr Conroy asked the Minister representing the Minister for Employment, in writing, on 10 November 2015:

In respect of global roaming costs for departmental and agency staff on information and communications technology devices since 8 September 2013, can the Minister provide an itemised list of costs incurred, including but not limited to (a) date of use, (b) call or data type, (c) location of use, (d) length or size of the call or download, and (e) cost per call or data download.


Mr Pyne: The Minister for Employment has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question:

The Department of Employment does not track the specific item of global roaming costs for mobile services it provides. To identify and calculate these costs from the invoices received for mobile telecommunications since September 2013 would be an unreasonable diversion of departmental resources.
