Answered on

MRI MACHINE — KALGOORLIE

228. Hon ROBIN SCOTT to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Health:

(1) In respect of the magnetic resonance imaging machine that is being contemplated for the Kalgoorlie health precinct, will the minister table all correspondence with suppliers of MRIs?

(2) In respect of the building required for an MRI machine in the Kalgoorlie health precinct, will the minister table all correspondence with prospective tenderers?

(3) If there has been no correspondence with prospective suppliers and prospective tenderers for the building, what is the explanation?

Hon ALANNA CLOHESY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. I am advised as follows.

(1) No. There has been no correspondence with suppliers of MRIs.

(2) No. There has been no correspondence with prospective tenderers.

(3) It is not standard practice to correspond with suppliers or prospective tenderers during the early planning phases of a capital project because the release of such information could influence future procurement by providing market advantage.
