The Corporate Key Pty Ltd

(Question No. 787)

Mr Conroy asked the Minister for Justice, in writing, on 12 May 2015:

In respect of the tender to The Corporate Key Pty Ltd (CN3007592), what specific products will be supplied, and for what purpose.

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

Contract Notice CN3007592 with The Corporate Key Pty Ltd (trading as Key Merchandise) was to procure 5000 ThinkUKnow-branded, program relevant products (mobile phone holders) for the purposes of encouraging education of appropriate mobile telephone usage amongst children.

ThinkUKnow is a partnership between the AFP, Microsoft Australia, Datacom and the Commonwealth Bank of Australia launched in Australia in 2009. The products were purchased through funding contributed by Microsoft as part of this partnership.

The purpose of ThinkUKnow is to bridge the gap between parents, carers and teachers, and children in respect to online safety, and to deliver presentations and outreach programs Australia-wide educating on online grooming, sexting, privacy, inappropriate content, cyberbullying and fraud and identity theft. In the past financial year the program has reached more than 200,000 children, and has delivered 1500 presentations to parents, carers and teachers.

The products purchased through Key Merchandise, and the subject of the tender, are designed to encourage parents and carers to establish an appropriate time for children and youth to disconnect from their devices at night, and to reduce the amount of time spent on mobile devices.
