Dr Southcott asked the Minister for Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, in writing, on 2 September 2008:

Prior to the rollback of Community Development Employment Projects (CDEP), what proportion of the CDEP Placement Incentives were paid for job seekers employed by the Northern Territory ?


Ms Macklin (Minister for Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs) —The answer to the honourable member’s question is as follows:

As at 30 June 2008 over 700 CDEP Placement Incentives were paid for participants employed by the Northern Territory.

Note that the number above refers to employment placements. R0311 refers to CDEP participants that have transitioned into job positions. Over time multiple employment placement incentives can be claimed against a single NT job position. For example, an employment placement incentive can be claimed for the first occupant of a particular job position. If this occupant, for whom an employment placement has been claimed, leaves the job position, another employment placement incentive can be claimed for the second occupant in the same job position.
