                                          DBE Payroll Services are charged to agencies on a notional basis. There is no cost differential for position levels. The cost differentials are between commencements, terminations, manually processed (PTR) transactions (ie payroll officer processing a transaction) and automatically processed pay (PTR) transactions (ie pay system processing a transaction).

                                        5. How are costs determined between departments in relation to payroll costs, including transfers and relocation of staff?
                                          DBE’s notional charges are generally determined annually and are not revised for staff transfers unless these are significant.(for example associated with administrative restructures)

                                          20. What was the rate of turnover of staff in the Department in 2009?
                                            The rate of turnover of staff in the Department in 2009 is 26.17%.

                                          21. What is the rate per level?

                                            There are a variety of employment arrangements including temporary contracts across the Department, therefore, a breakdown by classification is not a valid calculation of staff turnover in the agency.
                                          22. How many vacant positions are there in the Department as a whole?
                                            As at 31 March 2010 there are 272 vacant positions as recorded in PIPS for the Department. Note: this response needs to be considered in light of question 24.
                                          23. How long, in total days, have permanent positions been vacant in the Department?
                                            The average length a permanent position is vacant within the Department is 118 days.

                                            This has been calculated from a sample of 20 vacancies and is calculated from the date of receipt of an approval to fill to the commencement date of the successful applicant.
                                          24. In relation to all vacant positions, what is the breakdown of recruitment actions by:
                                          a) selection process commenced; and
                                          b) selection process (including position advertising) not commenced.
                                            .

                                            68 Recruitment actions have progressed to DBE advertising.

                                          25. How many staff are currently employed on a temporary contract?
                                            There are 338 employees on contracts as at 31 March 2010, excluding casuals. There are 101 staff engaged on an executive contract and 237 staff engaged on other temporary contracts.
                                          26. In the period 1 January 2008 to 1 April 2010, how many positions have been advertised by “expression of interest”?
                                            During 2009-10 financial year (up to 31 March 2010) there have been 26 positions advertised by “expression of interest”. Note: data compiled from the Agencies recruitment register and only covers vacancies of less than six months.
                                          27. In the period 1 January 2008 to 1 April 2010, how many temporary contracts have been extended, broken down by the number of times extended?
                                            DBE has provided system data, however, this is only available from 1 July 2009.

                                            A total of 235 temporary contracts have been extended during the 2009-10 financial year (up to 31 March 2010).

                                          28. How many times has the Department sought permission from the Commissioner to extend a contract beyond a third extension?
                                            Public Sector Instrument 15 allows the CEO to renew on more than one occasion all classifications of employees in accordance with section 34(5) of the Public Sector Employment and Management Act (PSEMA) and subject to specified conditions. This reduces the requirement to seek permission from the Commissioner to extend a contract beyond a third extension. No requests have been submitted to the Commissioner on the basis of a third contract extension.
                                          29. If permission has been sought, what recruitment action has taken place?
                                            Nil requests.

                                          30. Per position level, what is the average length of time taken for recruitment from advertising to successful applicant?

                                            47. Do you have any personnel under the old Commonwealth superannuation scheme and if so, what is the liability? What are the optimal retirement ages for such staff based on superannuation benefit definitions, what are ages of those people, and what are their position levels in the public services? If there are nurses, teachers or police in the CSS, how many are there, at what level and what are their ages?
                                              NT Treasury will be providing further information to answer this question on a whole of government basis considering sufficient disaggregated information is not available at a Department level to answer the question.
                                            48. Do they still have NT public servants who were employed in the 80’s and eligible for return flight to Adelaide every 2 years? How many and at what level?
