Department of Veterans' Affairs: Staff Contracts

(Question No. 862)


Mr Conroy asked the Minister for Veterans' Affairs, in writing, on 17 August 2015.

In respect of recruitment, training and service contracts undertaken by the Minister's department(s) in 2014-15, (a) how many new staff contracts were entered into, and of these, what are the relevant staffing levels, and (b) what total sum was spent on recruitment, and of this, what is the breakdown for (i) recruitment agency fees, (ii) advertising, (iii) assessment processes, and (iv) other associated costs.


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

(a) A total of 93 new non-ongoing staff engagements were entered into from 1 July 2014 to 31 June 2015.

(b) New non-ongoing staff may be engaged from a temporary employment register managed by DVA or when required from recruitment agencies. Non-ongoing staff are engaged across the business and it would be too resource intensive to isolate these specific costs.
