Question Without Notice No. 771 asked in the Legislative Council on 12 September 2018 by Hon Peter Collier

Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on 12 September 2018

CONSTITUTIONAL CENTRE AND ELECTORAL EDUCATION CENTRE

771. Hon PETER COLLIER to the Leader of the House representing the Premier:

Thank you, Madam President. I apologise for the length of that last question.

The PRESIDENT: Noted.

Hon PETER COLLIER: I refer to the Constitutional Centre and the Electoral Education Centre.

(1) Has a consultant been engaged by the government to review the Constitutional Centre and/or the Electoral Education Centre; and, if yes, who and at what cost?

(2) What future use is the government planning for the buildings currently housing the Constitutional Centre and the Electoral Education Centre?

(3) What efficiencies is the government seeking through the digital transformation of the Constitutional Centre and/or the Electoral Education Centre services?

(4) What alternative service delivery models for the Constitutional Centre and/or the Electoral Education Centre are being considered?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question, which I note was lodged on 30 August.

(1) Yes. The Nexus Network has been engaged to review the Constitutional Centre. The cost has not yet been finalised but will be included in the relevant consultant's report tabled in Parliament

(2)–(4) The review of the Constitutional Centre is focused on whether the centre is meeting its aims and objectives; the current service delivery model, including digital engagement; and whether opportunities for synergies with other state and commonwealth government programs exist.

It should be noted for listeners of the Rumour File program on 6PR that the Premier has no intention of moving from Dumas House and enjoys being in the same building as his ministers.
