Mr Kelvin Thomson asked the Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations, in writing, on 15 September 2006:

For each financial year since 1 July 2000: (a) which employment agencies has the Minister’s department engaged; (b) what was the total cost of engaging employment agencies; and (c) how many employees were placed by these agencies and, of those, which were employed on (i) an ongoing and (ii) a non-ongoing basis.


Mr Andrews (Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Public Service) —The answer to the honourable member’s question is as follows:

The Department has in place a panel arrangement of ten employment agencies to provide short term labour and a suite of recruitment services. Due to the decentralised function groups are able to access these services without involvement from Corporate. It would be an unreasonable diversion of resources to provide any further information.
