Department of Veterans' Affairs: Executive Training

(Question No. 519)


Mr Conroy asked the Minister for Veterans' Affairs, in writing, on 21 October 2014:

Since 7 September 2013 to 30 June 2014, what training has been provided for (a) Executive, and (b) Senior Executive Service, level departmental officials, and what (i) total sum has the Minister's department spent, and (ii) is the breakdown in cost, for such training.


Mr Andrews: the Minister for Veterans' Affairs has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question:

The responses are provided from 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2014, as it would be too resource intensive to provide from 7 September 2013.

Whilst most training provided to departmental staff is centrally recorded, some is managed by individual business areas. It would be too resource intensive to provide information on these individual programs.

See Table 1 for centrally recorded training provided to (a) Executive and (b) Senior Executive Service level departmental officials:

(i) The total sum spent on this training was $445,034.09.

(ii) The breakdown in cost for such training is provided in Table 1.
