Answered on 12 April 2018

LOCAL PROJECTS, LOCAL JOBS — MINING AND PASTORAL REGION

272. Hon JACQUI BOYDELL to the Minister for Regional Development:

I refer to the Local Projects, Local Jobs program.

(1) How many projects have been delivered in the Mining and Pastoral Region?

(2) Will the minister list all those projects and their value?

(3) How many of these projects were not election commitments?

(4) Will the minister list all the projects that were not election commitments, and their value?

(5) How many projects have changed in any form from their initial election commitment announcement to the final delivery?

(6) Will the minister list all projects referred to in part (5), the scope and cost of their initial iteration, and the scope and cost of their final delivered iteration?

Hon ALANNAH MacTIERNAN replied:

I thank the member for the question.

(1) Sixty projects are to be delivered.

(2) I table the attached document.

[See paper 1284.]

(3) All projects are election commitments.

(4) Not applicable.

(5) As the member would expect, the risk assessment, due diligence and funding agreement processes undertaken by the regional development commissions for each grant have resulted in some refinement of project scope and costs. However, I am advised that all projects are being delivered in line with the general intent of the election commitment.

(6) Not applicable.
