Fit-out of new leased premises for Centrelink in Greenway, Australian Capital Territory
Final

CHAIR (Mrs Moylan) —I declare open this public hearing into the proposed fit-out of new leased premises for Centrelink at Greenway, ACT. This project was referred to the Public Works Committee on 8 February 2006 for consideration and report to parliament. In accordance with subsection 17(3) of the Public Works Committee Act 1969:

(3)   In considering and reporting on a public work, the Committee shall have regard to -

(a)   the stated purpose of the work and its suitability for that purpose;

(b)   the necessity for, or the advisability of, carrying out the work;

(c)   the most effective use that can be made, in the carrying out of the work, of the moneys to be expended on the work;

(d)   where the work purports to be of a revenue-producing character, the amount of revenue that it may reasonably be expected to produce; and

(e)   the present and prospective public value of the work.

We received a confidential briefing from Centrelink this morning and inspected the current premises and site of the proposed works. The committee will now hear evidence from Centrelink.
