Question No. 288

Mr Ronald Edwards asked the Minister for Defence Support, upon notice, on 26 May 1983:

Will he provide details of contracts let by his Department in each State in 1982-83.

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

In answering the question the following considerations apply:

(1) the details do not apply to contracts under the public tender threshold value, currently $10,000. As there is no consolidated record it is not administratively feasible to provide details of purchases below that figure. These are undertaken through local purchase action at the point of need.

(2) the details relate to contracts awarded to firms resident in the particular States listed.

(3) where contracts have been awarded to the head office of a national based company located in one State and the requirement is produced by a subsidiary in another State, the contract is recorded against the State in which the head office is located.

Details are as follows:
