VETERANS EMPLOYMENT TRANSITION SUPPORT

1225. Hon CHARLES SMITH to the minister representing the Minister for Veterans Issues:

I refer to the Public Sector Commission website and, in particular, the veterans employment transition support.

(1) Why is this initiative currently on hold?

(2) How long has it been on hold for?

(3) What is the reason that it is on hold?

(4) What is the time frame for it to be fully functioning?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

(1)–(4) A decision was taken by the Public Sector Commission to put the initiative on hold following the departure of Public Sector Commission employees managing the initiative. The initiative has been on hold since January 2018. The newly appointed Public Sector Commissioner is in the process of considering programs delivered by the commission and will be involved in discussions with the Minister for Veterans Issues in relation to veterans' transition and employment.
