Mr McClelland asked the Minister for Defence, upon notice, on 20 November 1997:

(1) Has the Minister's Department engaged consultants since 2 March 1996; if so, (a) which consultants have been engaged, (b) what was the nature of the work undertaken in each case and (c) what sum was paid in each case.

(2) What is the estimated cost of consultancy work being undertaken for the Minister's Department for which no payment has been made.


Mr McLachlan (Defence) —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1) For the 18 month period 2/3/96 to 30/9/97 the Department has let 387 consultancies at a cost of $13,452,857. Details are provided on the following list. These figures compare favourably with spending on consultancies in earlier years. For example, 477 consultancies were let at a cost of $12.53 million in financial year 1994-95; and 336 consultancies at a cost of $ 9.69 million between 1/7/95 to 1/3/96.

(2) The estimated cost of consultancy work being undertaken for the Department of Defence for which payment has yet to be made, as at 30/9/97, was $1,319,330.
