(Question No. 1031)


Senator Campbell asked the Minister representing the Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs, upon notice, on 2 February 1994:

  (1) Please provide a state by state breakdown of how many vehicles the department leases through DAS Fleet.

  (2) Does the department own and/or lease any vehicles other than from DAS Fleet; if so, please provide: (a) a state by state breakdown of the number of vehicles; and (b) an agency breakdown of the number of vehicles.

  (3) As servicing/maintenance and fleet management are no longer tied to DAS Fleet, does the department have contracts for these functions with private firms; if so, how many are serviced by private firms, please provide: (a) a state by state breakdown; and (b) an agency by agency breakdown.

  (4) What is the average cost of fleet maintenance agreements entered into by the department.


Senator Collins —The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission has provided the Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs with the following information in response to the honourable senator's questions:

  (1) The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC) leases 227 vehicles nationally through DAS Fleet. At Attachment A is a breakdown by state.

  (2) No vehicles are owned or leased through any organisation other than through DAS Fleet.

  (3) No contracts are held for the servicing or maintenance of vehicles.

  (4) For vehicles that are leased by the Commission from DAS Fleet under the "Fully maintained arrangements", the average fleet maintenance cost for these vehicles is $56.99 per vehicle per month. This includes fleet management, customer reports, scheduled maintenance, unscheduled maintenance, tyres, loan vehicles while vehicles are receiving maintenance and road service. For the "Non-maintained" arrangements, maintenance and servicing is done on a "need basis" by local firms or dealers that comply with the manufacturer's specifications. No formal contracts are entered into.
