DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION —
1124. Hon DONNA FARAGHER to the Minister for Education and
I refer to the Department of
Education's community services request panel arrangement for chaplaincy
(1) At the closing date, how many
offers were lodged?
(2) Has the selection process been completed; and, if
yes, will the minister list the successful service providers?
(3) If no to (2), when will the
process be completed?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
(1) Two offers were lodged.
(2) No. YouthCARE
was awarded a contract for chaplaincy services through a separate community
services request, ED 19223, as a preferred service provider under the
delivering community services in partnership policy. Schools have the option to
use YouthCARE or panel providers selected from ED 19095. This will maximise the
opportunity for all schools to access a chaplain.
(3) The process will be completed
by mid-November 2019.
