Mr Albanese asked the Minister for Employment Services, upon notice, on 15 September 2003:

(1) Would he provide details of the money paid to Job Network providers to cover the cost of “transitional” jobseekers referred to in Mr Bob Correll's letter dated 9 September 2003 to Job Network CEOs.

(2) How were these amounts calculated.

Mr Brough (Minister for Employment Services and Minister Assisting the Minister for Defence) —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1) The total cost to cover payments for the initial interviews for transition job seekers that do not coincide with a payment point on the Active Participation Model continuum is around $2 million.

(2) The methodology used in calculating the payment is as follows:

Total number of initial interviews conducted, or to be conducted in the future, that were not funded plus an estimation of attempted contacts for these interviews that were not successful x $35 x provider national business share.
