2014 Graduate Review
01-01-0001
  2014 Graduate Review   The 2015 graduates were excited to receive their invitations to the 2014 Graduate Review. This was a chance for the 2014 graduates to present a piece about their 2014 graduate year to Corporate Executives, graduate coordinators and the new graduates. The event kicked off with a delicious lunch, over which we mingled with the 2014 graduates, asked questions, and got to chat with Corporate Executive members. The 2014 graduates then proceeded with anticipation (and nerves) to present their review. The performance was presented in the style of ABC’s Q A, complete with a host, panellists and live twitter feed. This format reflected some special talents of the graduates, who had backgrounds in IT, media, public speaking (and acting?). We enjoyed watching the informative question and answer session on each graduate’s background, rotations within Finance, challenges, achievements and advice offered to new graduates. Highlights of the event included a commercial break featuring the David Attenborough promo for ‘Walking with Graduates’, and receiving the 2014 Graduate Year Book, a wonderful compilation of memories and stories about their graduate year. Overall, this event was an invaluable opportunity to learn lessons, be inspired, network and discover more about Department of Finance as a whole.

A Look to the Future
01-01-0001
A Look to the Future: 3rd Rotations and Beyond Alastair I have been fortunate enough to have landed in Strategic Issues in the Strategy and Coordination Unit. Although at the time of writing I am only in my second week, this rotation looks set to put all of the skills I have developed throughout the year to the test. Strategic Issues is a varied work area, which deals with the Department’s external relations and ensures that our brand is positively represented in the media. Having completed an internship at a public relations agency during university, this rotation will give me exposure to an in-house communications role. While my future is currently uncertain, I am thankful for the variety of experiences I have been afforded as a graduate with the Department of Finance. I hope to continue working at the Department in a progressive team to further develop my skills in policy development, project management and stakeholder engagement. David My third placement for the 2015 Graduate Program is in the Office of State Revenue. I am specifically based in the Review team, analysing taxpayer objections to tax matters (including Land Tax, Payroll Tax and First Home Owner Grants). This is the area Holly was in for the second rotation. I am looking forward to developing my legal interpretation skills and learn a little about something everyone loves... tax! The first few weeks have been challenging and very different to my other rotations, but the people have been great. I have attended a hearing at the State Administrative Tribunal, and I am looking forward to being involved in that ongoing process. My hopes for the future are to continue to develop myself as a person, and hopefully end up in an area which I enjoy working in, and can add some value to. Holly My third and final placement for the 2015 Graduate Program is in Government Procurement’s Procurement Policy and Practice Improvement (PPPI) team. I am really excited about this placement because the work is very practical and policy orientated, and involves providing policy advice and assistance to the whole government procurement business area. I will learn about the main policies and agreements that influence procurement in WA, gain practical experience in contract formation and management, and attend State Tenders Review Committee meetings. My hopes for the future are to gain further practical experience within Finance and learn from my peers. I ultimately want to work in a great team, and be in an innovative and leading-edge environment, working on projects that help the WA community and add value to people’s lives. Ian My last rotation is with Economic Reform’s Regulatory Reform team. We are a small group of five at the moment, aiming to send unnecessary regulatory barriers to the pits! My focus for this rotation is on the collaborative economy, should we regulate business models and if so, how we go about doing it. So far it’s been extremely interesting wading through the catacombs of innovation and seeing what amazing ideas are cropping up around the world. After this rotation, I’m hoping I can stay with Economic Reform or move into another business/policy analysis role. I’ve loved the projects where I’ve challenged my analytical skills to find and solve inefficiencies for the business, and am hoping to improve the versatility of my skills further through more exposure to various business units. Mary Building Management and Works’ Government Office Accommodation (GOA) has been quite interesting. It has been fascinating to learn about relocations, cost analysis considerations and change management. I am excited that my workplan continues to get me out of my comfort zone and will expose me to policy review, benefits realisation and alternatives analysis. I feel that this rotation ties the loop quite well. State Revenue deals with taxpayers, SCU’s stakeholders are mostly within the organisation and now, GOA works with the different public sector agencies. In the future, I hope to continue my exposure to the different areas in the Department of Finance, grow with the organisation and most importantly, keep making a difference with what I do. Acknowledgements We would like to extend gratitude to our Graduate Coordinator, Diana Morellini. We very much appreciate the dedication, time and effort she has put into us and the 2015 Graduate Program. We would also like to thank the Director General, the Corporate Executive, our supervisors, mentors and buddies for their support and guidance. Our Graduate year has been an amazing experience because of you all. Big thanks is also extended to James Allison, who patiently helped us with this Yearbook.

About Vehicle Licence Duty
01-01-0001
About Vehicle Licence Duty What is vehicle licence duty Liability for vehicle licence duty Paying vehicle licence duty What is the definition of a vehicle?   **INSERT AND REFER TO RELEVANT PUBLICATIONS**   What is Vehicle Licence Duty? Vehicle licence duty is a general revenue tax imposed under the Duties Act 2008 and is payable upon the purchase of a motor vehicle if:  the vehicle is licensed; or  the current licence is transferred. For information on how to transfer vehicle ownership, please visit to the Department of Transport website.      Back to top   Liability for Vehicle Licence Duty Liability for vehicle licence duty arises on the date on which Department of Transport (“DOT”) grant or transfers a licence for a vehicle. This generally occurs when the ‘notification of change of ownership’ form is received by DOT and processed.  The person responsible for the payment of vehicle licence duty is the person in whose name the licence for the vehicle is granted (i.e. the transferee or purchaser).     Back to top   Paying Vehicle Licence Duty Payment of vehicle licence duty is made to the Department of Transport when the vehicle licence is transferred. Accordingly, any requests for remittance of “infringement fines” due to failure to pay must be made to the Department of Transport. It should be noted that the Department of Transport do not offer Extensions of time to pay the Vehicle Licence Duty.  The vehicle licence duty will only be payable to the Office of State Revenue in certain circumstances where a reassessment of vehicle licence duty is applicable or where certain transfers of a vehicle licence may be charged with nominal duty.   Back to top   What is the definition of a vehicle?  A vehicle that is required to be licensed under the Road Traffic Act 1974 (“RTA”) is considered a vehicle for the purpose of vehicle licence duty.  There are types of vehicles for the purposes of assessing duty-  A new vehicle is a vehicle that has not been used (or used only for the purpose of selling/demonstrating the vehicle or charitable/minor incidental purposes)  An ‘other than new’ vehicle, which is essentially a used vehicle.  Specialised vehicles which have specialised equipment attached to it   Back to top

Calculation of Vehicle Licence Duty
01-01-0001
Calculation of Vehicle Licence Duty How is duty calculated? Rates of duty Dutiable value Can I object to the duty? How is duty calculated? The amount of vehicle licence duty that is payable is calculated by determining the dutiable value and applying the appropriate rate of vehicle licence duty .   The duties calculator will be able to assist in estimating the amount of vehicle licence duty payable.   Back to top Rates of duty   Rates of vehicle licence duty  are divided light and heavy, regardless whether they are new or used vehicles. Light vehicle Light means a vehicle with a gross mass of less than 4.5 tonnes. Rates are as follows –   Dutiable Value Value Rate Up to $25,000 2.75% of Dutiable Value $25,001 - $50,000 2.75% + % of [(Dutiable Value - 25,000)/ 6,666.66] of Dutiable Value Over $50,000 6.5% of Dutiable Value   Heavy vehicle Heavy means a vehicle with a gross mass of more than 4.5 tonnes. Rates are the lesser of –   Dutiable Value Value Rate Up to $400,000 3.00% of Dutiable Value (capped to a Maximum of $12,000)     Back to top Dutiable value   The calculation of the dutiable value for vehicles will differ between new vehicles, used vehicles and specialised vehicles.   New vehicles The dutiable value of a new vehicle is the recommended selling price in Western Australia set by the manufacturer and includes optional features. This does not include any additional features, so if you decide to purchase additional window tinting, rims, bull bars etc. this will not form part of the dutiable value of a new vehicle. Note – Optional features only include a particular type of transmission (e.g. automatic vs. manual) or engine (e.g. 1.8L vs. 2.0L). Example A person acquires a 2015 Toyota Corolla for the recommended retail price of $22,990.00. The person also purchases rims, window tinting, tow bar, and fabric protection for an additional $2,000.00. As the vehicle is a new vehicle the accessories purchased do not form part of the dutiable value. Therefore, the dutiable value is $22,990.00.                 Used vehicles   The dutiable value of a used vehicle is the amount for which the vehicle might reasonably be sold, free of encumbrances, in the open market (i.e. market value).The Redbook is used as a general guide to market values of a vehicle - www.redbook.com.au (“Redbook”). The dutiable value also includes additional features attached to the vehicle at time of licensing. Example A person acquires a used Mazda 3 from a dealer for $15,000.00. The person also purchases rims, window tinting, tow bar, and fabric protection for an additional $2,000.00. The accessories are fitted to the vehicle at the time of the licence being transferred. As the vehicle is a used vehicle, the dutiable value of the vehicle is the market value of the vehicle at the time of transfer. This includes accessories attached to the vehicle. As such, the dutiable value of the transaction is $17,000.00.   Example A person purchases a used vehicle from an auction for $6,000 but does not licence it with Department Of Transport immediately. Over the period of two weeks the person purchases additional features worth $1,000 which increase the dutiable value of the vehicle. At the time of licensing with DOT, these additional features would form part of the dutiable value, so VLD will be assessed on the higher value of $7,000 as the vehicle is now worth more.                           For further information on the dutiable value of a vehicle, please refer to Circular V.L.D 4 – Definition of Dutiable Value.     Specialised vehicles   The dutiable value is to be calculated in respect of certain specialised vehicles to which specialised equipment is attached and certain criteria have been met.   Specialised equipment means any of the following:   (a) a crane; (b) an excavator, road roller, road grader, bulldozer, mechanical shovel, plough, rotary hoe or similar plant; (c) hoisting equipment for lifting, partially lifting or towing other vehicles; (d) bitumen spraying equipment; (e) a cement agitator; (f) garbage collection equipment; (g) road sweeping equipment; (h) a refrigeration unit; (i) a stock crate; (j) a tank for transporting liquids; (k) equipment to make the vehicle habitable by a person in the course of a journey; or (l) any similar plant or equipment.   Duty for specialised vehicles is calculated as if the specialised equipment attached to it at the time of the application for the grant or transfer of the licence for the vehicle were not attached to it if:  the applicant holds, or previously held, the licence for another specialised vehicle “vehicle A”); and  the applicant is the last person to hold a licence for vehicle A; and  the duty paid by the applicant on the grant or transfer of the licence for vehicle A was assessed on the dutiable value of vehicle A including the value of the specialised equipment that was then attached to it; and  the specialised equipment referred to in paragraph (c) has been removed from vehicle A and attached to vehicle B; and  the application for the grant or transfer of the licence for vehicle B is accompanied by, or includes, a declaration in the approved form to the effect that, in the applicant’s opinion, the circumstances in paragraphs (a) to (d) apply and that the applicant understands that the original equipment must not be attached to any other vehicle for which the licensee intends to become the licence holder.   Estimating the dutiable value on the “Notification of Change of Ownership Form” There may be a difference between the price that a vehicle is sold for and what the dutiable value of the vehicle is. The purchaser is to estimate the dutiable value on a “Notification of Change of Ownership Form” (i.e. MR9 Form”) which is the form sent to the Department Of Transport to transfer the licence from one party to another. The dutiable value is circled in red below. The selling price is circled in orange below.       Example 1 A father decides to sell his vehicle to his daughter for $1,000. This would be the selling price. However, the dutiable value needs to reflect what the vehicle would sell for on the open market, considering the transfer is between related parties. Redbook suggests the type of vehicle the father is transferring is value at $10,000. Accordingly, $10,000 would be the dutiable value and Department Of Transport would assess Vehicle Licence Duty on $10,000.                         Back to top Can I object to the duty?   Road Traffic Act 1974 Entitlement to a Vehicle Licence Fee exemption under the Road Traffic Act.   As all Concessions and Exemptions are processed by the Department of Transport, further enquiries may be made to:   Department of Transport GPO Box R1290 Perth WA 6844 Telephone: 13 11 56 Duties Act 2008 If you feel you are entitled to an exemption under the Duties Act or consider the dutiable value of the vehicle determined by the Licensing Authority too high, you may query or lodge an objection with this Office:   Office of State Revenue GPO Box T1600 Perth WA 6845 Telephone:(08) 9262 1100 WA Country Callers: 1300 368 364   Most queries can be resolved over the phone but if you wish to lodge an objection, it must be:  In writing;  Lodged within 60 days of the date on which the Licensing Authority issues the notice;  State fully the grounds you rely on;  Include all relevant information to support your objection;  Include a copy of the relevant transfer or vehicle licence. Note:  Payment of the Licensing Authority's "Transfer of Vehicle Licence Invoice" is still required to be made, as an objection does not suspend or defer payment.  Under the Road Traffic Act, failure to pay the Invoice by the due date will result in the issue of an infringement.   Any vehicle licence duty overpaid as a result of a successful objection will be refunded.

Common Use Arrangements
01-01-0001
Whole-of-government Common Use Arrangements When looking to purchase goods or services, one of the first things a government officer will ask is: 'Is there a Common Use Arrangement in place for this?' A Common Use Arrangement (CUA) is a whole-of-government standing offer, awarded to a single supplier or group of suppliers to provide goods or services commonly purchased by agencies. Think stationery, computers, fuel, telecommunications, waste or electricity. Each contracted supplier has agreed to supply these for a fixed period under specific terms and conditions – including price. Many CUAs allow government officers to ‘pick and buy’ the goods or services on offer, so there is no need for quotes. Most CUAs are mandatory in the Perth Metropolitan area. If an item is available on a CUA, an officer MUST buy it from one of the contracted suppliers, unless an exemption has been granted by Government  Procurement. Each CUA has a contract manager who is available for advice and works with suppliers to make sure they meet their contractual obligations. To find out which CUAs are relevant to your business, go to the Contracts WA website. Prepare to submit an offer Do your research to prepare for the time when you have to submit your offer for a CUA: Check the Contracts WA website to see which CUA currently covers your product or service. Make a note of its expiry date. Every CUA has a Buyers Guide, which will give you an insight into how the arrangement currently works. Buyers Guides are available on the Contracts WA website. Make contact with the contract manager. You can find their contact details on the Contracts WA website and in the relevant Buyers Guide. There are a number of ways to find out if a CUA is up for renewal: Bookmark the home page of the Contracts WA website on your internet browser – it lists CUAs coming up for renewal. Register on the Tenders WA website to receive notices of tenders relevant to your business. Registration is free. If you have previously registered, make sure to keep your details up to date. Check the Early Tenders Advice listing on the Tenders WA website (picture right). Once advertised, CUA tenders are listed on the Tenders WA website. To be considered as a CUA supplier, you have to go through a tendering process. Go to the Overview of the tendering process webpage for more information. If you need help with the Tenders WA website or Contracts WA website, contact the Procurement Systems team by email on procsystems@finance.wa.gov.au or by phone on 6551 2020. GP regularly runs quoting and tendering training sessions for suppliers. If you are new to tendering or need a refresher, attend a free New to Quotes and Tenders seminar. Marketing for CUA suppliers Once you are on a CUA, you are in a great position to supply goods and services to Government as your business is listed in the Buyers Guide. Don’t forget, since most CUAs have more than one supplier, you are still operating in a competitive field. To make the most of your position as a contracted supplier, make sure to continuously market your business to relevant agencies. These lists will help you identify potential buyers: The Approved CUA users list (PDF) includes all organisations that have approval to buy from CUAs. The Government purchasing officers list (PDF) includes the contacts details of a purchasing officer in each State Government agency. Tip: To find out when CUAs are up for renewal, register on Tenders WA and check the Early Tenders Advice section on a regular basis. Tip: To get up to speed with quoting and tendering, attend one of the regular, free New to Quotes and Tenders seminars.

Contractor Sanctions Scheme article

New Contractor Sanctions Scheme Building Management and Works (BMW) is implementing a Contractor Sanctions Scheme as part of its strategy for ensuring it works with contractors who have a demonstrated track record in delivering superior project outcomes. Under the Scheme, which is effective from 1 October 2015, contractors who fail to meet BMW’s expectations may collect demerit points and, ultimately, be subject to sanction. Initially the Scheme will include only one incident that will lead to demerits: the failure to comply with the Government’s new Government Building Training Policy. Under this policy, a contractor must employ a specified proportion of apprentices and trainees in their construction trades workforce, evidenced by the submission of quarterly reports to BMW. Failure to do so will result in a demerit being applied.   Demerit points will remain on the contractors record for three years. If a contractor accumulates three or more demerits, BMW will consider the circumstances and a sanction will generally be applied.   Contractors will be notified of BMW’s intention to apply a demerit or sanction, and will be given the right to reply and identify any extenuating circumstances BMW should take into account before the demerit or sanction is applied.   Once a sanction has been applied contractors can appeal if they can provide evidence that the process wasn’t followed correctly or that BMW has failed to take into account any extenuating circumstances the contractor has raised.   Over time, the Scheme will be extended to include other instances of poor performance or behaviour that may lead to the issuing of demerits. Further information on these instances will be provided.   For further information, please contact BMW’s Industry Liaison team on (08) 6551 1984 or BMWindustryliaison@finance.wa.gov.au.

David
01-01-0001
David My name’s David and I am one of the 2015 Department of Finance Graduates. My rotation’s this year have been in: Infrastructure Delivery in Building Management and Works ICT Sourcing in Government Procurement The Review Branch in State Revenue. When I was six, I decided I would be an architect. Every time I visited a friend I’d offer them a drawing I had prepared earlier of their own house. I then moved to drawing my own imaginary city and suburb layouts. This, paired with enjoying high school Geography, made me decide to embark on a four year degree in Town Planning when I finished school. In my final year of Town Planning, in the midst of writing a laborious thesis paper, with $45 in my account each week, I decided to apply for the Finance Graduate program. This was mainly on the recommendation from my brother, who works for Government Procurement. Unexpectedly, I got the job. Nearly a year later – wow what a year it has been! The best part about the year for me has been the training and exposure I have been so fortunate to receive. Getting to know David: Ideal travel destination? While I would like to explore other countries, I think I’d love to see more of Australia. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful country with such vast landscapes and untouched wildernesses. Most interesting hobby? It’s not that interesting, but my passion is actually dance. My parents never wanted me to do dance classes as a child (I think they may have anticipated something along the storylines of every Dance Moms episode!) but I was allowed to do gymnastics. This progressed to taking dance every year in high school, taking proper classes once I finished school, and eventually landing an amazing job teaching. Dance allows me to develop my strength and fitness and has taught me self-discipline, confidence, and creativity. My Graduate Experience March The first few months at BMW have been both interesting and productive. I have been privileged enough to have visited a number of sites on site visits, including my local public high school, new police station sites, old police stations in the process of being renovated, and I have a planned visit to a new hospital facility in the coming weeks. I attend an average of three to four meetings a week and am in consistent contact with architects, builders, surveyors, police and education staff and of course all of the BMW project managers in our office. I have a hard hat, work boots and a ‘high vis’ vest I wear out to sites which makes me feel very important, not to mention safe! I have also attended a number of training sessions with the other Finance graduates, including the Graduate Future Leaders program. The project I am working on for this program is the Karratha Leisureplex redevelopment and I have an excellent group of people in my group so I am really enjoying that. April It’s now April and the third month in my first rotation has been a whirlwind. I have continued to work on a variety of mainly project based work, learning from BMW’s experienced Project Managers. In the last month I have become increasingly familiar with the processes involved with each step of a construction project, as well as the requirements of the Project Manager at each of these stages. One of my favourite tasks has been arranging the tender documentation for the public artwork at a local high school. I processed the applications, which was an amazing opportunity to see the concepts the various artist’s were proposing. My manager was away for a week and a half this month which provided me with the challenge, and opportunity, of working more independently. I was the first point of contact for his projects (Cockburn Central, Mundijong, Ballajura and Mirrabooka Police Stations), addressing a wide variety of concerns. May The month of May was the final month of my first rotation at Building Management and Works. This month seems to have rushed by faster than any of the others, and I have become routinely involved in projects including the Cockburn Central Police Station and the Willetton Senior High School Redevelopment. I have done so much work on these projects in particular that I feel a sense of attachment to them. In this final month I have seen a number of tender evaluations take place for builders on construction projects. This involved observing the evaluation process and writing up the evaluation report. I enjoyed these tasks as they directly impact the community, and I got to use my writing skills, which I have found I thoroughly enjoy using. I have survived my first rotation and my first four months of working full time! June June saw the start of a new rotation into the Government Procurement (GP) business unit. I am enjoying Procurement so far, working mainly in the CUA (Common Use Arrangement) space, assisting with the contract development of the Data Centre Services CUA. One of the best parts of this month has been the opportunity to undertake site visits to the data centres, which form part of the evaluation process. June also saw me attend a GP Business Planning Meeting; an afternoon spent with about 30 of the managerial staff, including each of the head’s of the areas in Procurement, and the Executive Director. This was an amazing opportunity to witness and be a part of some of the strategic business planning for GP. Following the meeting, I wrote up all the ideas that were discussed (for weeks after I had butcher paper all over my desk), and these will form GP’s strategic directions framework for the next three years. July July has passed, and I am now half way through my rotation in GP and halfway through the Graduate Program. This month I have been mainly working on the contract development of the ICT Services CUA. This has involved a lot of work for our team, as we have had 274 responses from suppliers. July also saw the Finance Graduates attend the third module of the Graduate Future Leaders Program. The networking aspects this program provides are exceptional and I personally really enjoyed this module. We were able to hear from Dr Margaret Crowley, an expert in leadership, as well as the CEO of Fiona Stanley Hospital. We also had a site tour of the Hospital facility, which is one of the biggest in the Southern Hemisphere. August I have now completed my third month at Government Procurement and I have really enjoyed it. The work I’ve been involved in has mainly centred again on the ICT Services CUA. This has involved writing up evaluation comments on many of the respondents for the 400-page Evaluation Report, undertaking financial checks on respondents, checking their insurances and workers compensation policies and compliance with the contract’s Head Agreement. I have also been in charge of creating the Buyers Guide for the new contract and involved in the creation of the Contracts WA page for the CUA. One of the most valuable experiences this month was the opportunity to shadow the Executive Director. This involved attending a number of meetings with Stephanie Black, the ED of Government Procurement. It was interesting to see the way Stephanie leads by example, through her ability to make decisions quickly and listen to her team members. It was invaluable to learn from someone who was involved in major projects such as the decommissioning of Shared Services and the commissioning of ICT at Fiona Stanley Hospital, which definitely requires substantial skills in project management. Overall I enjoyed the experience, and I definitely learnt a lot which will hopefully help me throughout my career.

David's Grad-Swap
01-01-0001
David’s Grad-Swap   In September this year, Kate Steinsvaag, a Graduate from Procurement at the Housing Authority, came to visit me on my second rotation in Government Procurement. Over the period of three days, I showed her the ropes of procurement in a central agency. Kate was particularly interested in the contract management side of procurement. We attended a number of meetings and met with numerous individuals, who willingly gave of their time to give Kate (and me!) some insight into their vast and invaluable contract management experience. This included attending supplier meetings with Perth Energy for an Electricity and Gas Common Use Arrangement (CUA) and Australian Paper for a Stationary CUA. Along with many other meetings, we also had discussions with various people (including three Directors) on what makes good contract management, along with some lessons learnt from poor contract management in the past. They also shared with us their journey in procurement and recommendations for success in contract management as a career. Kate enjoyed the experience, as did I. I am looking forward to my part of the swap, which will take place soon. I will be visiting the Housing Authority for three days to see the way they do procurement. It will be interesting to see the way a line agency operates, and the kind of focus their procurement, and work generally takes. As I have a background in Town Planning, I am also lucky enough to have the opportunity to gain some exposure to the Planning related functions of Housing, which will be excellent! This is an example of another great development opportunity provided by the Finance Graduate Program.

Documentation Reviews article

Documentation reviews   Building Management and Works (BMW) documentation reviews have been finding instances of misalignment and clashes between consultant drawings. For example, structural and building services drawings contain elements that conflict with features on architectural drawings. BMW documentation reviews do not obviate the need for design teams to check documentation for accuracy and coordination. All consultants are responsible for checking their own work for consistency before submitting it to the Lead Consultant and BMW.     IMAGE TO GO HERE       Answer: Lintel is not wide enough to span glazing, and cross bracing is not shown across glazing.

Energy reporting reminder
01-01-0001
Energy reporting reminder BMW requires that lead consultant monitor and report on building energy consumption during the defects liability period (Architectural Services Panel Request 2012, clause B2.11). This reporting has not always been completed, however BMW is now collecting energy benchmarking data for all new building projects as part of post-occupancy evaluations. The Lead Consultant, or delegated sub-consultant, is required to submit an Energy Use Report to the Principal’s Representative monthly during the defects liability period. This Report should record the building’s energy use compared to estimated use. Any discrepancies should be noted and remedial measures recommended if necessary. A final Energy Use Report should be submitted before a Final Certificate is issued. Download BMW’s Energy Use Report template here. The Energy Use Report will form part of the Final Completion checklist. Failure to submit the Report may be noted on the consultant performance report.   For further information please contact BMW's Building Research and Technical Services: principal.architect@finance.wa.gov.au

Events and Training
01-01-0001
Events and Training Finance Alumni Network (FAN) Common feedback from previous graduate cohorts is that connections can get lost once people move around the Department, particularly with the decentralisation of business units. To bring us all back together again, the 2015 Graduates inaugurated the Finance Alumni Network (FAN), becoming the 2015 FAN Committee. FAN’s goal is to foster and facilitate networking, knowledge-sharing and general camaraderie across all Finance graduate intakes. This year we have been creating a foundation of information sharing and advertising so that future innovative ideas can bloom. To this end we have established a distribution list including all previous graduates still with the Department, started a short-publication cycle with the FAN Bulletin, and held our launch event with a Quiz Night. It’s been a blast being a part of the 2015 FAN Committee and bringing something to the Department that has been so well-received. It is our hope that the 2016 graduates will bring enthusiasm and fresh ideas to the table to continue the momentum of FAN throughout their graduate year! FAN Bulletin The FAN Bulletin, set for release quarterly, is designed to be an espresso-reader for social insight into FAN Members. Our current format sees three articles, including a ‘Where Are They Now’ section interviewing a past graduate. It also affords FAN a platform to broadcast its events, which helped us to achieve good numbers for our Quiz Night. This initiative has been well-received by members so far: “I enjoy reading about successes of the other Graduates” 2014 Graduate Review The 2015 graduates were excited to receive their invitations to the 2014 Graduate Review. This was a chance for the 2014 graduates to present a piece about their 2014 graduate year to Corporate Executives, graduate coordinators and the new graduates. The event kicked off with a delicious lunch, over which we mingled with the 2014 graduates, asked questions, and got to chat with Corporate Executive members. The 2014 graduates then proceeded with anticipation (and nerves) to present their review. The performance was presented in the style of ABC’s Q A, complete with a host, panellists and live twitter feed. This format reflected some special talents of the graduates, who had backgrounds in IT, media, public speaking (and acting?). We enjoyed watching the informative question and answer session on each graduate’s background, rotations within Finance, challenges, achievements and advice offered to new graduates. Highlights of the event included a commercial break featuring the David Attenborough promo for ‘Walking with Graduates’, and receiving the 2014 Graduate Year Book, a wonderful compilation of memories and stories about their graduate year. Overall, this event was an invaluable opportunity to learn lessons, be inspired, network and discover more about Department of Finance as a whole. Morning Tea with the Director General The 2015 Graduates were busy preparing for their morning tea with Anne Nolan, the Director General, which was held on Wednesday 19 August. We were very excited for this opportunity to meet with Anne and get to know her a bit more in an informal setting. We prepared caramel slices, brownies, rum balls, sandwiches and an orange chiffon cake. Everything was delicious and top notch! Diana Morellini and a few staff from Strategy and Coordination joined us as well. Everyone gathered around the food as we told our stories and answered questions about our projects and our Graduate Program experiences. Our diverse backgrounds were highlighted by the different pathways we took in getting into this Program. One of the curliest questions was ‘What advice would you give to a Year 11 student going through high school?’ Responses were mixed, from ‘study hard’ to ‘leave time for sport and relaxation’. Clearly there’s still no sudden realisation of the ‘right path’ through the education system! Everyone was also interested to hear that we aren’t just rotating across the Department’s different business units. We are also working with graduates from other agencies on Premier’s Award 2014 projects, which were submitted by government departments. The hour went by really fast. Everyone had fun and had a few laughs and to wrap things up we took a few photographs! FAN Quiz Night The FAN Quiz Night, held in September, sought to bring FAN to the social fore. The night began with exclamations of long-lost connections, which meant that very little effort was required to get the room buzzing. Quickly friends became foes as the quiz began, answering questions carefully chosen by the FAN Committee. The competition was fierce, especially with the newly-coveted Golden Fan up for grabs. Everyone wanted to be the first-ever winners of this amazing trophy, but one team’s determination shone through to blast the competition out of the water. The race for last was constantly in question over the night, with the Wooden Spoon eventually awarded due to performance in the last round. The race was so tight, that second and third ended the night tied and needed a Rock Paper Scissors tiebreaker to sort it out. After the dust settled, everyone adjourned to recap the night (and the last few years!) with their rediscovered connections. All in all, it was a very successful night that we hope will springboard interest for future FAN events! Mentor’s Corner As graduates, we are very lucky to be able to work with different people. In each rotation, we were assigned a supervisor and a buddy who would help us with our four month journey. We are grateful for their guidance, support and the time they spent working with us throughout our projects. These are a few words from them about their experience being a supervisor or buddy. “It was great to have a buddy to hang out with and show the ropes to. Not that Ian needed much looking after. He is a very self-sufficient kinda guy! Watching Ian settle into life at GP took me back to the time when I first started in the workforce. I would have given everything to have someone around to ask the things you don’t really want to ask your manager for fear of asking a dumb question! Congratulations to Finance for having this system in place. From where I’m sitting it’s a win-win.” Ian’s Buddy - Kristien van der Spoel, Business Development Coordinator, Government Procurement “I was pleased to hear that I was given the opportunity to mentor Mary Cheng during her rotation in the Duties branch within the Office of State Revenue. On reflection, I enjoyed being a mentor as, at the end of Mary's rotation, I saw an individual that had grown and developed numerous skills in such a short time. Seeing her succeed in the role was extremely rewarding. I believe mentoring has improved my own skills in a number of areas. Areas that I feel have developed the most as a result of being a mentor are my networking and communication skills. Having completed a graduate program myself, I was able to find whether or not I was suited to a particular role based on the rotation I was placed into. Although I had more than three rotations in my program, I found the rotations played a key part in developing my networking, leadership and management skills; particularly as I had the opportunity to work with very experienced staff members from a range of areas. From what I have seen as Mary's mentor, the communication and support from the graduate program coordinators has been excellent.” Mary’s Supervisor/Buddy - Monika de Lautour, Principal Revenue Officer, Duties Branch - Office of State Revenue David’s Grad-Swap In September this year, Kate Steinsvaag, a Graduate from Procurement at the Housing Authority, came to visit me on my second rotation in Government Procurement. Over the period of three days, I showed her the ropes of procurement in a central agency. Kate was particularly interested in the contract management side of procurement. We attended a number of meetings and met with numerous individuals, who willingly gave of their time to give Kate (and me!) some insight into their vast and invaluable contract management experience. This included attending supplier meetings with Perth Energy for an Electricity and Gas Common Use Arrangement (CUA) and Australian Paper for a Stationary CUA. Along with many other meetings, we also had discussions with various people (including three Directors) on what makes good contract management, along with some lessons learnt from poor contract management in the past. They also shared with us their journey in procurement and recommendations for success in contract management as a career. Kate enjoyed the experience, as did I. I am looking forward to my part of the swap, which will take place soon. I will be visiting the Housing Authority for three days to see the way they do procurement. It will be interesting to see the way a line agency operates, and the kind of focus their procurement, and work generally takes. As I have a background in Town Planning, I am also lucky enough to have the opportunity to gain some exposure to the Planning related functions of Housing, which will be excellent! This is an example of another great development opportunity provided by the Finance Graduate Program. Graduate Future Leaders Program This year the Graduates were fortunate enough to participate in the Public Sector Commission’s 2015 Graduate Future Leaders Program (GFLP). The program takes graduates from various agencies in the public sector that commenced employment within the last 12 months, and provides them with a whole-of-government perspective through four tailored training modules and an ‘action learning project’. Module 1 Leading From Where You Are Finally, the module concluded with ‘Networking skills’, hosted by a networking specialist. For those of us unfamiliar and somewhat uncomfortable with the concept of networking, we were pushed outside of our comfort zone and required to network with fellow public sector graduates throughout the course of the afternoon. Overall, the first module was a valuable experience and a good opportunity for graduates to meet their public sector colleagues. The first module consisted of three sessions: ‘Conversation with Public Sector Leaders’, ‘Treasury in focus’, and ‘Networking skills’. After a refreshing morning tea, the A/Deputy Under Treasurer gave a presentation which provided an overview of the State’s finances. This session was particularly helpful for non -Treasury graduates, as it provided context to a lot of what we do. Module 2 Parliament and Finance in Practice The second module started early on a crisp May morning, with registration at 8.15 am. The first session for the day was ‘Parliamentary processes and practices’, which was hosted by Rebecca Neilson, A/ Manager Parliamentary Services. Rebecca provided a snapshot of the process behind how legislation is made, and what role public sector officers have in the process. This session was extremely informative for all public sector graduates, as it put our work in to the context of the bigger picture. Module 3 Leadership and Policy in Action It had been a couple of months since the last module, and everyone was excited to get back into the program. The first session was hosted by Dr Margaret Crowley from C-Suite Consulting, who spoke in-depth on the importance of effective leadership and, more specifically, values driven leadership. Following the morning session each group was given time to work on its ‘action learning project’. Following morning tea, session two ‘Accountability in the Public Sector – the Budget and Evaluation’ kicked off. The first half of the session focussed on the budget and the budget cycle, which was topical, as it was due to be released that week. The second half of the session explored the concept of evaluation, which is the ‘systematic assessment of operations and outcomes of a program/policy’. The importance of evaluation in the public policy setting was reinforced, with different evaluation models introduced and explored. After lunch we were fortunate enough to visit Parliament House. We watched question time in the Legislative Assembly where there was a condolence motion for the late Hon William (Bill) John McNee MLA. The second module highlighted the role public sector officers play in the legislative process, and was a thoroughly enjoyable day. We then boarded a coach bound for Fiona Stanley Hospital, where we were given a tour and presentation from Dr Paul Mark, A/Executive Director Fiona Stanley Hospital. The visit to Fiona Stanley Hospital was a great experience, and it was interesting to hear all of the challenges associated with a $2 billion project, the State Government’s biggest ever project! The afternoon session was hosted by Simon Taylor, Director Strategic Assessment Perth Peel/Kimberley Strategy (wow what a job title!) from the Department of the Premier and Cabinet back at Dumas House. Simon hosted a policy workshop, which required us to work in groups and provide a brief paying close attention to policy and project considerations, as well as being aware of the political considerations. A very challenging task indeed. Overall, the third module was challenging and interesting, with the site visit to  Fiona Stanley Hospital the highlight.     Module 4 Your Career in the Public Sector The final module for the 2015 Graduate Future Leaders Program had arrived. The focus of the day was on the key ingredients and strategies for a successful career in the public sector, a topic that resonated with the majority of participants. The day started with some time allocated to working on our ‘action learning projects’, which was invaluable given how busy everyone is with their normal graduate workload. After a brief morning tea, Dr Lynn Allen from 361 Degrees provided an excellent presentation on communicating in the public sector. The presentation was interesting and interactive, and provided gradates with some practical stakeholder mapping tools to take back to our respective agencies. Following lunch was a panel discussion with three young leaders in the public sector hosted by Jack Busch. This was definitely the highlight of the day, as the insight the panel was able to impart on the graduates was priceless. Overall, the fourth and final module was a great way to end the learning and development component of the Graduate Future Leaders Program. Our GFLP Projects Alastair—Strategic expansion of alternative service delivery channels to provide customer convenience and choice, Department of Transport With ever increasing demand for licensing services, Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS) has developed an extensive strategy to expand alternative service delivery channels and ultimately offer customers greater choice and convenience through a larger network. Based on two main themes, Partnerships and Digital, our project aims to build on the work already undertaken in this area and identify key opportunities for improvement that will allow the Department to take the ‘logical next step’ in DVS. Holly—Shared Equity Expression of Interest (EOI) Scheme, Housing Authority The primary goal of our project is to implement an online submissions, assessment and tracking program for the Shared Equity EOI scheme at the Housing Authority. By implementing an online submissions assessment program within the Authority for EOI submissions, the Authority can achieve a greater understanding of which submissions successfully track through the construction and selling phase, which do not, and the possible reasons for this. Additionally, the implementation of an online platform will yield significant efficiency gains across the EOI process, with potential to increase the turnaround time for applications and reduce the administrative burden of all applications. David—Karratha Leisureplex , City of Karratha This project centres on the Karratha Leisureplex Redevelopment undertaken by the City of Karratha. The Karratha Leisureplex Redevelopment was a flagship project for the State Government’s City of the North vision, and has played a pivotal role in the transformation of Karratha from small town to major regional city. Our project outlines a comprehensive five year plan for the Karratha Leisureplex moving forward. We propose surveying the community to establish the kind of programs they would like to see at the Leisureplex and then holding a Fete event. The most popular programs from the Fete will be rolled out to the community over a five year period. The project aims for a more socially and economically sustainable Karratha Leisureplex. Ian—Send us your (fish) skeletons, Department of Fisheries The Department of Fisheries’ (Fisheries) Send us your skeletons (SUYS) program is an initiative involving citizens in science that assists research and monitoring to support science-based decision making for sustainable fisheries management in Western Australia. SUYS encourages an estimated 691,000 recreational fishers to participate in fishing research and long-term stock monitoring by donating frames (filleted skeletons). Data from these frames is used to assess fish stocks and guide fisheries management to ensure there will be fish for the future. To increase donations from recreational fishers we propose strategies to promote communication and collaboration with interested parties. These strategies will also serve to further publicise the success of SUYS. Mary - Fitzgerald River National Park Improvement Project, Main Roads The Fitzgerald River National Park (FRNP) Improvement project run by Main Roads was a State and Federal Government funded initiative announced following the closure of the Ravensthorpe BHP nickel operation in 2009. As a biodiversity hotspot, the protection of the FRNP against the spread of Dieback was one of the primary environmental objectives of the project. Through liaising with local schools in the region we saw an opportunity to develop an education package focussed on the FRNP and educating local school children on Dieback and its potential impacts in the park. It is envisaged that the Dieback awareness education strategy will strengthen community knowledge of Dieback from the bottom up, and provide children with firsthand experience on how to be a responsible user of the park and help limit the spread of dieback themselves. Other Training Courses Writing for Government and Ministerial Overview This training involved a number of learning exercises to prepare us for writing within Government. There was particular focus on the structure of ministerials and how to draft them. The course facilitator highlighted the importance of grammar and punctuation. There was even a quiz on commonly misspelt words, such as ‘onto’ and ‘on to’, ‘discrete and ‘discreet’ and whether to use terms like ‘fewer’ or ‘less’ in certain circumstances. It sounds simple, but was definitely a challenge. Overall, it was a very useful day and many new writing skills were attained. Meeting Skills David Bunney led this course with a fast- paced but light-hearted approach. He went through various topics, emphasising the importance of structure and purpose to a meeting. I know I can be a culprit of adopting the ‘let’s have a chat’ meeting structure all too often, wasting precious work time. The day had plenty of participation opportunities, from showing how tone varies people’s reactions to arranging a full-scale event. At one point, I was requested to give a sales pitch for a whiteboard marker to demonstrate the importance of benefits to generating participation. All in all, it was a very creative approach to the course which has definitely left an impression. Could have used more explosions, though, so 4 stars. Microsoft Excel Over two days, we had the opportunity to learn more about Excel’s functions and how useful the software is to utilise as a tool. We didn’t realise that the knowledge we already had was minuscule compared to the functions that Excel had! Topics such as formula referencing, data linking, labels and names, logical and lookup functions, validating data and conditional formatting were covered. It was an intense two days to say the least! Policy Development As new public servants to the Department of Finance, the 2015 Graduates had much to learn from the policy development workshop held in June. This workshop was designed to provide us with a broad understanding of public policy. The workshop was practical and involved analysing election plans and designing a consultation strategy for a policy statement provided in the Treasurer’s budget speech. We were also addressed by a guest speaker from the Department’s own Economic Reform business unit. Introduction to Project Management This course introduced the basic concepts of project management, paying close attention to the project management knowledge areas. The group was required to work on a fictitious project for the duration of the workshop, and apply the different aspects of project management as we learnt them. This method of practical learning is effective, as it allows participants to apply concepts as they are learnt. The importance of effective project management was drilled into us, and I’m sure as grads we will be able to use what we learnt in our roles. Overall, the course provided a solid foundation to project management theory. Influencing and Negotiating Skills The Influencing and Negotiation Skills workshop was a great training session as it incorporated real workplace situations. In the form of personal anecdotes and a game, the facilitator kept the day interesting and introduced various tools that we can use to influence others. From the moment we started the training course, we were learning techniques that would assist in negotiations. A lot of the theories we covered in this training course was applicable to different stages of my project in Strategy and Coordination. Because of this, I find that the workshop was a lot more valuable as I can see the application firsthand. Presentation Skills In this training course, we also covered the six principles of persuasion. What I enjoyed the most from this course was the interaction and the activities we did throughout the day. We had the opportunity to present as a group and individually, as well as watch a video of Robert Cialdini explaining his six principles of persuasion. As the training session was open to Department of Treasury as well as the other staff from Department of Finance, the group activity was a great way to meet new people from different areas. We have been told that the more you get up there a present before an audience, the easier it gets and both presentations were a great opportunity to practice public speaking. Coping With Change This workshop covered a variety of issues around learning to flourish in employment situations where the future is uncertain. This is particularly relevant in times where both rapid technological advancement and the current economic climate with reduced budgets create a degree of uncertainty around future employment. The course covered a variety of topics, including why 40 per cent of people will always resist change, intellectual versus emotional resistance and Myer-Briggs personality profiles and their relationship to change (I’m an INFJ – supposedly very rare but also incredibly stubborn to change!). This also allowed the facilitator to explain to us how to recognise improvements in dealing with change. One of the most valuable lessons I took away from the training session was the importance of taking time to look back at the changes you have been through successfully, and to reward yourself, when undergoing a process of change, something that we don’t always allow ourselves to do. Overall, the course was highly valuable, and it was particularly useful as a self assessment tool to establish how we personally respond to change, and therefore what we can improve about ourselves moving forward.

  The FAN Quiz Night, held in September, sought to bring FAN to the social fore. The night began with exclamations of long-lost connections, which meant that very little effort was required to get the room buzzing. Quickly friends became foes as the quiz began, answering questions carefully chosen by the FAN Committee. The competition was fierce, especially with the newly-coveted Golden Fan up for grabs. Everyone wanted to be the first-ever winners of this amazing trophy, but one team’s determination shone through to blast the competition out of the water.

Finance Alumni Network (FAN)
01-01-0001
Finance Alumni Network (FAN) Common feedback from previous graduate cohorts is that connections can get lost once people move around the Department, particularly with the decentralisation of business units. To bring us all back together again, the 2015 Graduates inaugurated the Finance Alumni Network (FAN), becoming the 2015 FAN Committee. FAN’s goal is to foster and facilitate networking, knowledge-sharing and general camaraderie across all Finance graduate intakes. This year we have been creating a foundation of information sharing and advertising so that future innovative ideas can bloom. To this end we have established a distribution list including all previous graduates still with the Department, started a short-publication cycle with the FAN Bulletin, and held our launch event with a Quiz Night. It’s been a blast being a part of the 2015 FAN Committee and bringing something to the Department that has been so well-received. It is our hope that the 2016 graduates will bring enthusiasm and fresh ideas to the table to continue the momentum of FAN throughout their graduate year! FAN Bulletin The FAN Bulletin, set for release quarterly, is designed to be an espresso-reader for social insight into FAN Members. Our current format sees three articles, including a ‘Where Are They Now’ section interviewing a past graduate. It also affords FAN a platform to broadcast its events, which helped us to achieve good numbers for our Quiz Night. This initiative has been well-received by members so far: “I enjoy reading about successes of the other Graduates”

Fire Safety and Aluminium Composite Panels
01-01-0001
Fire Safety and Aluminium Composite Panels Further to a notice from the Building Commission, fire safety concerns have emerged around the use of non-compliant aluminium composite panels (ACP) for external wall cladding. This issue was highlighted last November with an apartment fire in Melbourne’s Docklands. The fire started on an eighth-floor balcony and spread 13 storeys to the top of the building in less than 10 minutes. Investigations found that the Aluminium composite panels used for the external cladding did not meet the requirements of the BCA for that type of building. For buildings greater than three storeys, the BCA requires external cladding to be non-combustible. In order to comply, ACPs with a fire-resistant mineral-filled core would generally be used. The panels used on this apartment had a polyethylene core and, in this case, were non-complaint – failing Australian non-combustible tests and actually helping to ignite and spread the fire. This is a global problem and one we wish to get on top of early. The same product has been linked to high rise fires elsewhere in China, the United Arab Emirates and France. In the UAE alone, there have been approximately 11 significant fires in tall buildings since 2007. While the use of non-compliant panels was recently banned in the UAE, it is estimated that around 500 (70%) of their existing high-rise buildings are clad with ACP. This incident forms part of an ongoing issue regarding the prevalence of non-conforming, often imported products in the Australian building industry. There are a number of discussions and initiatives both at the State and Federal government level seeking to address this. To ensure that panels have been tested and demonstrated to meet the fire requirements of the BCA, BMW now require all ACP products specified for future projects have a valid Codemark Certification for the appropriate building type and use. CodeMark is a building product certification scheme that assesses products for their compliance with the BCA. Currently, CodeMark have suspended all Certificates of Conformity for ACPs and is re-issuing these as products are assessed and confirmed, as compliant. Codemark will not be re-issuing certificates for ACPs with polyethylene cores. The good news is that an audit of over 150 recent BMW projects found no non-complaint ACP products had been specified. This initiative will therefore be supporting business as usual.

Government Building Training Policy - News Article
01-01-0001
New Building Training Policy released The new Government Building Training (GBT) Policy released on 1 October 2015 aims to better support the Government’s commitment to a sustainable local supply of skilled workers. The new policy, which replaces the Priority Start - Building Policy, will promote investment in construction apprentices and trainees to meet the current and future needs of the building and construction industry. Government agencies are responsible for managing the requirements of the policy. It applies to all government building, construction, and maintenance contracts with a labour value exceeding $2 million, or a total project value of approximately $6 million and above. Head contractors must now employ construction apprentices and trainees to meet a ‘target training rate’, rather than a pre-set number of apprentices as the old policy stipulated.  From 1 October, 11.5 percent of head contractors’ construction trades workers must be apprentices and trainees. However, there is more flexibility for the contractors – the required levels of apprentices and trainees are averages measured quarterly throughout the financial year. Also, the  head contractors’ and their subcontractors’ existing apprentices working on the contract can be included in meeting the target. Every quarter (at the end of June, September, December and March)  the head contractor must send a Total Training Rate Report to the GBT Policy Officer. This report will be available to contractors on the Department of Training and Workforce Development (DTWD) website along with templates and lists of trades occupations that apply under the GBT Policy. What this means for Cost Managers, Lead Consultants, Planners and Quantity Surveyors is that the calculation for apprentices and trainees and the allocation of funds to the Apprentice Management Program from Department of Finance projects will no longer be required,  therefore, this can be removed from all cost planning templates.   Head contractors may incur sanctions if they fail to comply with the GBT Policy. These will be enforced by the GBT Policy Officer, and project managers will be involved only if their assistance or advice is required. For more information on this matter or for further information regarding the Apprentice Management Program, contact Jodie Smythe on 6551 1801 or email jodie.smythe@finance.wa.gov.au If you have any queries regarding the Cost Management Services Panel , please contact Anna Rechichi/Gaynor Boros on 6551-****. (*not sure who will be the contact as yet). View the full policy here Note for further information* Upon award of a contract in Scope the GBT Policy Office will contact the Head contractor to discuss the requirements and reporting process. There will also be a letter sent to all Cost management services panel members outlining the changes to the apprentice calculations (See attached DRAFT letter).

Graduate Future Leaders Program
01-01-0001
Graduate Future Leaders Program   This year the Graduates were fortunate enough to participate in the Public Sector Commission’s 2015 Graduate Future Leaders Program (GFLP). The program takes graduates from various agencies in the public sector that commenced employment within the last 12 months, and provides them with a whole-of-government perspective through four tailored training modules and an ‘action learning project’. Module 1 Leading From Where You Are The first module consisted of three sessions: ‘Conversation with Public Sector Leaders’, ‘Treasury in focus’, and ‘Networking skills’. The day began with ‘Conversation with Public Sector Leaders’, where the three panel members reflected on their experiences as leaders in the public sector. This session provided graduates with invaluable insights and an understanding of what it takes to be an effective leader in the public sector. After a refreshing morning tea, the A/Deputy Under Treasurer gave a presentation which provided an overview of the State’s finances. This session was particularly helpful for non -Treasury graduates, as it provided context to a lot of what we do.   Finally, the module concluded with ‘Networking skills’, hosted by a networking specialist. For those of us unfamiliar and somewhat uncomfortable with the concept of networking, we were pushed outside of our comfort zone and required to network with fellow public sector graduates throughout the course of the afternoon.   Overall, the first module was a valuable experience and a good opportunity for graduates to meet their public sector colleagues.   Module 2 Parliament and Finance in Practice The second module started early on a crisp May morning, with registration at 8.15 am. The first session for the day was ‘Parliamentary processes and practices’, which was hosted by Rebecca Neilson, A/Manager Parliamentary Services. Rebecca provided a snapshot of the process behind how legislation is made, and what role public sector officers have in the process. This session was extremely informative for all public sector graduates, as it put our work in to the context of the bigger picture.

Holly
01-01-0001
Holly I have always had an interest in world travel, international affairs and the global community, and this informed my choice to study a Bachelor of Arts degree in Politics and International Studies, and a post-graduate Juris Doctor degree. I applied to work at Department of Finance because of the variety of business areas that the Department offered, and the diversity of skills and experiences that I could gain. I also knew that I wanted to work in the public sector so that I could contribute to the Western Australian community, and help facilitate the delivery of services aimed at improving the State, and improving quality of life. My biggest hobby in life is travelling, and I have had the opportunity to visit many places and see the diversity that the world has to offer. A couple of my travelling highlights have been visiting the Great Pyramids of Giza in Egypt, and doing an American road trip through California and Nevada. The Department of Finance has so far been a great place to work, and through my rotations, I have been exposed to very interesting government work, such as participating in interstate working groups, and attending State Parliament. I look forward to continuing my career with Finance, and hopefully taking some more overseas trips along the way! Getting to know Holly: What’s the one thing you’ve waited in line the longest for? Immigration at London’s Heathrow Airport. Hidden talent? I have double jointed shoulders and can ‘jump rope’ with my arms. My Graduate Experience March My first rotation has been in the Public Utilities Office (PUO) Supply and Consumer Policy Division. Throughout this rotation, I have had the following opportunities: To coordinate and attend Energy Market Reform Working Group (EMRWG) teleconferences. These teleconferences involve representatives from every State gathering to discuss important topics in the energy sector. To coordinate the PUO’s participation in the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Energy Council Senior Committee of Officials Meeting. I prepared a briefing file for the PUO’s Deputy Director General, Ray Challen, wrote a Briefing Note for the meeting and attended the meeting. This was a teleconference held at Dumas House and was my favorite experience of the rotation. April One of my primary project’s in the PUO has been to write a draft discussion paper on the review of electricity subsidy schemes administered by the Department of Finance. These subsidy schemes assist eligible Western Australians with the costs of energy usage in the home that is required for specified medical purposes. This project has involved research, liaising with the Office of State Revenue, who administer the schemes, and who have provided me with useful data and statistics, as well as analysis and writing of a draft discussion paper. Working with other people has been the highlight of my experience in Finance. I thoroughly enjoy participating in projects, training sessions and workshops where I get work with people from other business units within Finance, learn about their areas of work, and gain a broad perspective of the Department. May During my final month at the Public Utilities Office, I have been busy in my role as Ministerial Council Coordinator for the COAG Energy Council, and have had the opportunity to write Ministerial and Briefing Notes. A highlight of the past month was visiting Western Australia’s Parliament House through the Graduate Future Leaders Program. In the PUO I have contributed to work that is ultimately sent to the Minister for Energy for approval, so it was great to finally see him in person in the Legislative Assembly. Thanks to the visit, I gained an appreciation of the relationship between government departments and their Ministers. Overall, working in the PUO has exposed me to Western Australia’s energy sector and energy policy, provided me with an insight into inter-jurisdictional policy negotiations, allowed me to practice writing for government and improve my communication skills. For my second rotation I have been placed in the Office of State Revenue’s Legislation, Training and Review division. I have been working in the Review team, which has as its main roles: determining taxpayer objections to taxation assessments managing appeals to the State Administrative Tribunal reviewing proposals for legislation and legislative reforms. July So far I have worked on client files associated with land tax, penalty tax, payroll tax, transfer duty, vehicle licence duty and First Home Owner Grants. I have had the opportunity to develop my practical legal skills through interpreting legislation, applying it to the facts of a case and making determinations. I also get the opportunity to correspond directly with taxpayers through letter writing and via telephone. This has been a completely different work experience to my first rotation, and I have enjoyed the opportunity to expand my skill set and learn about another business unit in the Department. August I am now entering the final month of my rotation in State Revenue’s Review team, and this rotation has gone very fast, much quicker than the first it seems! It has been a challenging rotation in which I have learnt a large amount about the State’s tax revenue streams, and administration of taxation legislation in a short amount of time. I have to confess that I knew very little about tax prior to starting this rotation (except that I pay GST when at the supermarket checkout!). One challenging aspect of this role has been dealing directly with taxpayers and their agents, such as lawyers and property managers, and having to be on top of all your client files at any one time, in case you receive an enquiry via phone or email. This has provided me with a great opportunity to improve my client management and customer service skills! I have really enjoyed interpreting legislation and applying it to the facts of each case. For example, one objection required me to interpret sections of the First Home Owner Grant Act 2000 and determine whether the taxpayers were entitled to the grant. September One of the highlights of my time in State Revenue was attending State Parliament with members of State Revenue’s Legislation team. We attended a sitting of the Legislative Assembly for consideration in detail of the Revenue Laws Amendment Bill 2015. State Revenue staff provided policy advice to the Minister, Hon Bill Marmion MLA when questioned by other political parties. I also sat in on part of the Legislative Council’s second reading of the Land Tax Amendment Bill 2015. I have definitely gained a greater understanding of how State Revenue manages the State’s taxation Acts, and contributes to amending legislation to align it with government policy and budget decisions.

I’m a supplier The Western Australian Government spends around $14 billion* per year on goods and services. If you supply goods and services to the Western Australian Government or wish to do so, these pages are for you. Government Procurement (GP) can help you with general advice, information about the tender process and tender training. If you are a supplier of works and works-related goods or services, Building Management and Works within the Department of Finance is your first port of call. If you are a community services provider, speak to GP’s Funding and Contracting Services for advice. The nature of your business The Western Australian Government buys goods and services in a number of ways. What you are selling and/or the value of the contract dictate the purchasing method government staff must use. To sell to Government successfully, your marketing efforts should be in line with these purchasing methods: Purchasing methods: what are they and why do they matter? Whole-of-government Common Use Arrangements Tendering for agency contracts Quoting or direct purchasing for agency contracts What is Government looking for? Government wants to provide suppliers with fair and equitable access to its supply opportunities and has policies in place that ensure open and effective competition. When purchasing, government buyers are looking for value for money and an efficient and effective purchasing and contracting process. Once you are on contract, Government expects you to fulfil your contractual obligations, for example around pricing, quality of your goods or services, reliability, financial reporting or otherwise.

Ian
01-01-0001
Metropolitan class, Goldfields ingenuity and North-West eating habits combined in Fate’s hearth to refine Ian Loxton into what he is today. Born and bred in Perth to a Kalgoorlie heritage with work interests in the North- West of WA, I have a fair amount of conflicting influence in my household over… everything. I like to think I have taken this opportunity to build great appreciation of opinion. Regarding hobbies, I have a large multi-coloured swath of sporting experience behind me, though only developed casual skills in any one in particular. Similar for my gaming interests; bouncing from cards to video games to board games – generally keeping to the more intellectually engaging rather than twitch-based. I have participated in regional and national tournaments for some of these (even winning one once), though must admit that the tournaments weren’t nearly as fun as the trips themselves! I applied for the 2015 Department of Finance Graduate Program on the back of six years of tertiary education, mainly in Japanese and Chemistry. I was fortunate enough to spend eight months on exchange to Japan, “training in the mountains” at Kobe University. The one aspect about the Program that I’ve been really happy with is the real-world applicability of tasks I’ve been brought on to do. Business analytics went past just crunching numbers and into brainstorming and testing real solutions. Realising procurement contracts for other agencies allowed me to be involved in innovations across other public sector agencies. Being put in the role of Project Manager for two maintenance programs have seen me develop plans to deliver works and put them into action. Getting to know Ian If you could play any musical instrument what would it be? Not so much an ‘instrument’, but I would love to be able to sing well enough to evoke serious emotion out of people. A good voice can be so powerful. Right now, the only emotion I elicit from anyone using my vocal prowess is a shrill cry of pain as my crackly falsetto pierces the ears. Favourite TV show? Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell. I love satirical news shows in general, and anything Micallef touches turns to gold. Combining the two is a flawless proposition that sent me swooning to iView on a weekly basis. Favourite sport to play? Indoor beach volleyball. So good, I stuffed my shoulder playing it. I now know the value of pre-match stretching. Ian’s Graduate Experience March I was assigned to Government Procurement’s Business Analysis and Development (BAD) team for my first rotation. Upon getting over the initial sensible chuckles of the BAD puns, we knuckled down a project brief. I am to look into how Government collects, manages and uses its procurement data, and how we can do this better. As we move into an age where information management is just as vital as financial management, my work here will help shape how our Government performs in this shift. April April saw a marked rise in workload on the GP front. My foray into the world of procurement data has now been fully drafted and is undergoing review. The first draft was an eye-opener, it’s amazing how difficult it is to write for Government when you’ve been writing academic papers for six years! There were lots of parts that needed condensing due to over explanation, and equally many parts that required fleshing out and reworking to appeal to our target demographic—the busy Directors. The revision process will last another couple of weeks, probably, and then the report will be passed up the chain to be endorsed (hopefully!). In addition, I’ve taken on an assistive role in two agency tender evaluations and the facilitative role in one extra as well. This has made the last week of April especially busy, which did not bode well for the coincidental effort to give up coffee! Attending evaluation meetings is surprisingly fun, containing all the enjoyment of customer interaction without the loss of power you’re slogged with in the lower rungs of Retail and Hospitality. That feeling of equality between consumer and employee, working together to achieve a common goal is refreshing to say the least. BAD Teambuilding Event: In April, the BAD Team took to the parks for a teambuilding day of gardening and maintenance. We teamed up with Intework—one of our Australian Disability Enterprises (ADEs)—for the day, pulling out dead plants, weeding, and general tidying of a series of residential parks just off Safety Bay Road. It was a great day out; perfect weather, and we were able to meet some really genuine people too. It was great to put faces to companies that provide to Government, especially in the ADE realm. May I always knew my last month at GP would be a flurry of work between wrapping up my projects and organising the transition up to BMW. For the most part, my contingency planning worked and (despite being very busy); nothing has been really left to the last minute. My Data Framework report has been drafted and is now undergoing the editing process. I’m a little disappointed that the final copy won’t be finished by the time I leave GP, but I’m hoping that I’ll still play a role in this process as I will be working just upstairs. I feel that the report is so Frankenstein’d between current edits that I can no longer tell if the whole paper flows, but I’m happy with the individual parts! My job shadowing is going along smoothly. Today I will be running an evaluation meeting for Search Engine Optimisation, a great opportunity considering I’m technically not in that area of the business. Over the past three shadows I feel very confident in my knowledge of the tender evaluation process, so I’m glad I have the opportunity now to put things into practice as well. Building Management and Works: Trudging my meagre possessions up a whole two floors was struggletown, however as I arrived at my new digs with a fresh chair and a great view overlooking the lake and parks surrounding Optima, I settled in quickly to my starkly different workload with Maintenance and Regional Programs (MaRP). This rotation I would be engaging in Project Management, managing the delivery of treelopping to schools in the Pilbara and bore replacements to schools in the Metro region. This involves developing initiation documents and budget allocations, monitoring project status and reporting to Education on the fruits of their funds. In addition, I would also be tasked with developing a state-wide maintenance report, summarising the maintenance activity with discernible time and agency filters. My final major task was to redevelop the Maintenance section of the Finance external website. It turns out that BMW has a surprisingly active social atmosphere. There is a wellness committee for BMW that is incredibly active, holding events/ competitions every two months or so to engage the entire business unit in camaraderie. MaRP is especially fond of keeping spirits up, with monthly birthday morning teas that offer an opportunity to hear about the comings, goings and achievements of fellow staff. It works well for the ~80-person strong team. Committee or not, everyone really gets into it, as you can see from the photo. Mid-way through my rotation I had the opportunity to take some responsibilities of one of my colleagues while they were on leave. I was assisting in managing maintenance portfolios for the Departments of Culture and the Arts, Local Government and Communities, and Child Protection and Family Support. As expected there was a lot of work to get my head around, particularly because maintenance is still a fairly reactive space. This was an intense experience, really being thrown in the deep-end has given me a humungous appreciation for proper recordkeeping and managing client expectations. Looking back over it from the end of the rotation, the biggest change has been how I manage juggling a lot of different projects at once. In contrast to GP, I’ve needed to maintain a close watch on my prioritisation strategies, as once things slip out of the mind I often don’t think about them again until someone asks the dreaded question: “So what’s happening with X?” All in all though, it was an incredibly busy rotation but I still came out of it with a smile and a plethora of new and refined skills.

Mary
01-01-0001
Mary Languages paired with commerce seemed like a foolproof road to job security so I graduated with a degree in commerce and arts with majors in marketing, management, Japanese and Italian. However, I wasn’t so lucky. Questioning my career path while expanding my creative skills, Department of Finance came along and I decided to give it a go. Little did I know, this opportunity would be a great experience! During downtime, I enjoy a few hours of knitting, illustration, music and photography. Languages and travelling are my favourite guilty pleasure. I also enjoy exhilarating adventures and do things I would never dream of, like go on a river trek to jump off cliffs and repel down a waterfall! I look forward to tackling the Department of Finance Graduate Program full force, being thrown into the deep end and having fun learning along the way! Getting to know Mary Ideal travel destination? Europe. If you could play any musical instrument what would it be? Saxophone. What’s the one thing you’ve waited in line the longest for? Passport renewal. Took us about five hours. If you were an Avenger, which one would you be and why? I would be Black Widow because she is literally a superhuman who has superior technological know how (or demigod Thor). Favourite season? Autumn/winter transition. I love autumn and I love winter. My Graduate Experience State Revenue: The first month of the graduate program was overwhelming. Assessing my own work pile of transactions, unable to access the template database, being thrown into the deep end with customer queries about my assessments. It was not a walk in the park at all! The support from everyone was a key factor in my overcoming the tough first month. Everyone has been very nice and approachable, willing to go through the legislation and transactions with me repeatedly until that light bulb moment. I have been assessing more complicated contracts, now, after only a month. It sure keeps everything interesting and me on my toes. I am glad to say I am more financially literate than I was when I first started! It is surprising that we are already halfway through the first rotation and we are really getting into the jobs we have been assigned. I am the first grad at Duties so it was nice to meet up with a few grads from PUO and ER for lunch! We had a great time talking about our experiences so far and ask them what their graduate journey was like. The Duties and TASS teams gathered on April Fool’s Day to have a social catch up and celebrate Easter, so when the clock was nearing ten o’clock, everyone gravitated towards the food. The food was great, the company was wonderful and the chatter and smiles were contagious! It was a great start to the long weekend and a fantastic way to just relax with everyone and forget about work for a few minutes. The first two months went by so fast! I feel that the skills I’ve developed have been refined in a short period of time. Your patience increases and your mentality strengthened, your brain constantly working. The satisfaction you get from helping others and making their lives easier, that “Thank you” you get after each contact makes such a difference. In my last week at State Revenue, I was also assisting with the 2016 Graduate Interviews and boy, were they interesting. I didn’t spend much time at the office so on that last Thursday, I had a whole pile of work to action and a few follow up requisitions to issue. My last day was eventful - I finished up my rotation with a difficult customer and while Murphy’s Law occurred in my two last days, I felt like my experience has been tied into a neat bow. The OSR rollercoaster of legislation has now ended and it was bittersweet in that I really enjoyed my time at State Revenue. The team I worked with and the people were very supportive and approachable. They made a big difference in my experience and I am very happy to have had the opportunity to meet and work with amazing people. Four months down and it has been great. Now it is time to start a new four month chapter. Though the work in Strategy and Coordination will be 100% different from Duties, I am ready to take on this next stage of my Grad career. Strategy and Coordination: The first few weeks started out quietly. The work is so different from State Revenue and coming into a purely strategic area from an operational and process driven business unit, it is a big jump. The challenges started and I was thrown into the deep-end, which has always been the best way to learn, with the first phase (informal discussions) of my Communications Evaluation Project. I have enjoyed talking to everyone and learning about what they do. It was interesting to see how the different parts of the organisation interlink. July was a very interesting month and has been a storm of activity. We continued the first phase of my Communications Project. The responses we received were very interesting and eye opening. We then went to do a brief analysis of what we found, which would inform the survey development phase. Developing the survey has been a tough feat; it is not easy and has opened me to a whole new way of thinking. This is something that I would like to develop even more. September is a month of breakthroughs for me. It has been a great few weeks at SCU with training workshops and data analysis. I attended two training sessions which were great and complemented each other: Presentation Skills and Influencing and Negotiation Skills. A week after participating in these workshops, I reflected on how it fits with my project before the whole business unit. It was great to have a safe environment where I can improve on my public speaking skills and overcome my fear. Outside of work, I joined Toastmasters; the week after I did my first project speech, the Icebreaker, I was voted the Toastmaster of the Week! It is great to be able to get out of my comfort zone and push myself, especially when the skills I am developing have positive effects both professionally and personally. I also enjoyed developing my survey development and analysis skills, getting familiar with Excel functions and interpreting data. I hope to be able to continue improving these skills in my next rotation at BMW! Overall, this rotation is extremely outside of my comfort zone and I am very much enjoying this experience. The difficult times only amplify the accomplishments I have achieved. The time has gone by so fast that it is already the end of our second rotation. The last foot of the race has arrived and I am quite excited to see what is coming up next!

Mentor’s Corner As graduates, we are very lucky to be able to work with different people. In each rotation, we were assigned a supervisor and a buddy who would help us with our four month journey. We are grateful for their guidance, support and the time they spent working with us throughout our projects. These are a few words from them about their experience being a supervisor or buddy. "It was great to have a buddy to hang out with and show the ropes to. Not that Ian needed much looking after. He is a very self-sufficient kinda guy! Watching Ian settle into life at GP took me back to the time when I first started in the workforce. I would have given everything to have someone around to ask the things you don’t really want to ask your manager for fear of asking a dumb question! Congratulations to Finance for having this system in place. From where I’m sitting it’s a win-win." Ian’s Buddy - Kristien van der Spoel, Business Development Coordinator, Government Procurement

Moisture content in concrete
01-01-0001
Building Management and Works (BMW) documentation reviews have found several instances where specifications state that: Maximum relative humidity of concrete: To AS 1884 Appendix A3.1.2 and A3.1.3 or the manufacturer’s recommendation. (0651 Resilient Finishes)

Moisture Content in Concrete
01-01-0001
Moisture Content in Concrete New penetrative moisture testing requirements in AS 1884-2012 have caused difficulties for some recent building projects. Slabs measured, and deemed to exceed the allowable moisture levels, need a vapour barrier installed before some flooring products may be installed. The finished flooring system – including floor covering, adhesive, vapour barrier and slab – is then able to be warranted as per contract specifications. Contractors are required to: 1. Undertake all practical measures to ensure concrete has dried sufficiently. 2. Test concrete moisture content in accordance with AS 1884 – Appendix A. 3. Give a copy of test results to the Superintendent’s Representative. 4. Depending on the concrete moisture content test results, then: a. Should moisture readings not meet the required standard, Contractors shall meet the manufacturer’s warranted requirements for treatment of the floor slab, including application of a vapour barrier, or b. Should moisture readings meet the required standard, the sum allowed for a vapour barrier will be credited to the project as a negative variation. Contractors shall allow for a vapour barrier when tendering. BMW specifications and/or bills of quantities (where applicable) should include for relevant provisions for vapour barriers. Note that the moisture content requirements in AS 1884 are a minimum standard. Where the manufacturer’s requirements are more stringent than AS 1884, the manufacturer’s guidelines take precedence. Where the manufacturer’s requirements are less stringent than AS 1884, the Contractor shall seek guidance from the Superintendent’s Representative to determine if a lesser standard is acceptable. The Contractor is to provide a single, integrated flooring warranty, covering all aspects of the flooring materials and installation. The warranty of the finished flooring product as installed is to be for a minimum of 10 years, or as specified. The warranty is to be in the name of the Agency responsible for the building’s operation, or the Principal to the contract (the Minister for Works). For more information, see BMW Technical Guideline: Moisture content in concrete slabs

Morning Tea
01-01-0001
The 2015 Graduates were busy preparing for their morning tea with Anne Nolan, the Director General, which was held on Wednesday 19 August. We were very excited for this opportunity to meet with Anne and get to know her a bit more in an informal setting. We prepared caramel slices, brownies, rum balls, sandwiches and an orange chiffon cake. Everything was delicious and top notch! Diana Morellini and a few staff from Strategy and Coordination joined us as well. Everyone gathered around the food as we told our stories and answered questions about our projects and our Graduate Program experiences. Our diverse backgrounds were highlighted by the different pathways we took in getting into this Program. One of the curliest questions was ‘What advice would you give to a Year 11 student going through high school?’ Responses were mixed, from ‘study hard’ to ‘leave time for sport and relaxation’. Clearly there’s still no sudden realisation of the ‘right path’ through the education system! Everyone was also interested to hear that we aren’t just rotating across the Department’s different business units. We are also working with graduates from other agencies on Premier’s Award 2014 projects, which were submitted by government departments. The hour went by really fast. Everyone had fun and had a few laughs and to wrap things up we took a few photographs!

New Building Training Policy - News Article
01-01-0001
New Building Training Policy   The new Government Building Training (GBT) Policy will be released on 1 October 2015 and aims to better support the Government’s commitment to a sustainable local supply of skilled workers. The new policy, which replaces the Priority Start - Building Policy, will promote investment in construction apprentices and trainees to meet the current and future needs of the building and construction industry. Government agencies are responsible for managing the requirements of the policy. It applies to all government building, construction, and maintenance contracts with a labour value exceeding $2 million, or a total project value of approximately $6 million and above. Head contractors must now employ construction apprentices and trainees to meet a ‘target training rate’, rather than a pre-set number of apprentices as the old policy stipulated. From 1 October, 11.5 percent of head contractors’ construction trades workers must be apprentices and trainees. However, there is more flexibility for the contractors – the required levels of apprentices and trainees are averages measured quarterly throughout the financial year. Also, the head contractors’ and their subcontractors’ existing apprentices working on the contract can be included in meeting the target. Every quarter (at the end of June, September, December and March) the head contractor must send a Total Training Rate Report to the GBT Policy Officer. This report will be available to contractors on the Department of Training and Workforce Development (DTWD) website along with templates and lists of trades occupations that apply under the GBT Policy. Head contractors may incur sanctions if they fail to comply with the GBT Policy. These will be enforced by the GBT Policy Officer, and project managers will be involved only if their assistance or advice is required. For more information on this matter or for further information regarding the Apprentice Management Program, please contact Jodie Smythe on ph: 6551 1801 or email jodie.smythe@finance.wa.gov.au

News Article - BMW apprentice paints herself out of a corner
01-01-0001
BMW apprentice paints herself out of a corner  Further Speaking at the recent Women in Building and Construction (WinBaC) lunch at Perth Yacht Club, BMW painting and decorating apprentice Bronwyn Pring highlighted the great contribution women have made to the industry. Bronwyn, who becomes a third year apprentice this month, talked about the challenges facing a female apprentice in a male-dominated industry, and trying to fit in when she was often the only woman on site. The challenges included criticism from co-workers and even sexual harassment. She was afraid to make a complaint for fear of more ridicule but she was determined to continue her apprenticeship and asked herself “why should these people stop me from doing something I am passionate about?” Eventually Bronwyn felt she had to make a stand and raised the issue with her field officer, leading to an apology from the host employer. She moved to another employer and resolved to continue working hard at her job to gain the respect she knew she deserved. Bronwyn’s dedication and quality work have been recognised by her current host employer, Van Diddens Painting. She has become a valued team member at the company and enjoys good relationships with her co-workers there, earning praise for her attention to detail and the pride she takes in her work. Bronwyn appreciates the variety of projects she has worked on as a BMW apprentice, from private housing to the restoration works at the Cathedral Square project in the Perth CBD, and most recently at the WA Museum Research and Collection Centre in Welshpool with her current host employer. She is employed through Group Training Organisation MPA Skills.   Bronwyn encourages other women to enter apprenticeships in the building and construction industry – and to speak up when facing discrimination! Since 2006, BMW’s Apprentice Management Program has supported apprentices and trainees on government building and construction projects, in a variety of construction trades. Currently, the Program supports electrical, plumbing, painting and carpentry apprentices. The apprentices are placed with host employers doing building, maintenance, construction and refurbishment work. They are supervised by Group Training Organisations which provide on-the-job training and daily supervision. The apprentices’ wages are subsidised by Government.

Objection and Review
01-01-0001
Objection and Review Process Your rights Time limite to object Lodging an objection Objection decision process Your obligation to pay your assessment notice Review by the State Administrative Tribunal   Your rights You have the right to object in certain circumstances, including when you are dissatisfied with any of the following: An assessment of tax (other than a compromise assessment or a reassessment where there is a decrease in tax liability) A decision affecting your liability to taxation A decision on an application for a first home owner grant   Time limit to object You may lodge an objection within 60 days after the date on which the assessment is issued or notice of the decision is given to you.  In certain circumstances, the period of time for lodging an objection can be extended.  To extend the time to object you must apply in writing providing  full details of the reason why you are asking for an extension.   The application must be made within 12 months after the date the objection was to have been lodged.   Lodging an objection  An objection must: be in writing; set out detailed grounds that demonstrate that the legislation has been incorrectly applied in your particular circumstances.  It is not a valid ground for objection to merely disagree with the policy of the legislation; and be lodged in person, by mail or by our enquiry facility    Objection decision process When we receive an objection we will: Consider the grounds of objection and request further information, if required Decide whether to allow (in full or in part) or disallow the objection Where an objection is disallowed or only partly allowed, provide written reasons for the decision Where appropriate, issue a reassessment   Your obligation to pay your assessment notice The fact that an objection has been lodged does not defer or suspend your obligation to pay the tax by the due date shown on an assessment notice. You must apply in writing for an extension of time to pay if you would like the payment date extended.  Revenue Ruling TAA 1.2 provides information about when an extension of time to pay will be granted where an objection has been lodged. If, as a result of the objection decision, it is apparent that you have made an overpayment of tax, the overpaid amount will be refunded with interest.   Review by the State Administrative Tribunal If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of an objection, you may apply to the State Administrative Tribunal for a review of the objection decision. You must apply for a review within 60 days after the notice of the objection decision is given to you.

Other Training Courses Writing for Government and Ministerial Overview This training involved a number of learning exercises to prepare us for writing within Government. There was particular focus on the structure of ministerials and how to draft them. The course facilitator highlighted the importance of grammar and punctuation. There was even a quiz on commonly misspelt words, such as ‘onto’ and ‘on to’, ‘discrete and ‘discreet’ and whether to use terms like ‘fewer’ or ‘less’ in certain circumstances. It sounds simple, but was definitely a challenge. Overall, it was a very useful day and many new writing skills were attained. Meeting Skills David Bunney led this course with a fast-paced but light-hearted approach. He went through various topics, emphasising the importance of structure and purpose to a meeting. I know I can be a culprit of adopting the ‘let’s have a chat’ meeting structure all too often, wasting precious work time. The day had plenty of participation opportunities, from showing how tone varies people’s reactions to arranging a full-scale event. At one point, I was requested to give a sales pitch for a whiteboard marker to demonstrate the importance of benefits to generating participation. All in all, it was a very creative approach to the course which has definitely left an impression. Could have used more explosions, though, so 4 stars. Microsoft Excel Over two days, we had the opportunity to learn more about Excel’s functions and how useful the software is to utilise as a tool. We didn’t realise that the knowledge we already had was minuscule compared to the functions that Excel had! Topics such as formula referencing, data linking, labels and names, logical and lookup functions, validating data and conditional formatting were covered. It was an intense two days to say the least! Policy Development As new public servants to the Department of Finance, the 2015 Graduates had much to learn from the policy development workshop held in June. This workshop was designed to provide us with a broad understanding of public policy. The workshop was practical and involved analysing election plans and designing a consultation strategy for a policy statement provided in the Treasurer’s budget speech. We were also addressed by a guest speaker from the Department’s own Economic Reform business unit. Introduction to Project Management This course introduced the basic concepts of project management, paying close attention to the project management knowledge areas. The group was required to work on a fictitious project for the duration of the workshop, and apply the different aspects of project management as we learnt them. This method of practical learning is effective, as it allows participants to apply concepts as they are learnt. The importance

Our GFLP Projects   Alastair—Strategic expansion of alternative service delivery channels to provide customer convenience and choice, Department of Transport With ever increasing demand for licensing services, Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS) has developed an extensive strategy to expand alternative service delivery channels and ultimately offer customers greater choice and convenience through a larger network. Based on two main themes, Partnerships and Digital, our project aims to build on the work already undertaken in this area and identify key opportunities for improvement that will allow the Department to take the ‘logical next step’ in DVS. Holly—Shared Equity Expression of Interest (EOI) Scheme, Housing Authority The primary goal of our project is to implement an online submissions, assessment and tracking program for the Shared Equity EOI scheme at the Housing Authority. By implementing an online submissions assessment program within the Authority for EOI submissions, the Authority can achieve a greater understanding of which submissions successfully track through the construction and selling phase, which do not, and the possible reasons for this. Additionally, the implementation of an online platform will yield significant efficiency gains across the EOI process, with potential to increase the turnaround time for applications and reduce the administrative burden of all applications. David—Karratha Leisureplex , City of Karratha This project centres on the Karratha Leisureplex Redevelopment undertaken by the City of Karratha. The Karratha Leisureplex Redevelopment was a flagship project for the State Government’s City of the North vision, and has played a pivotal role in the transformation of Karratha from small town to major regional city

Overview of the tendering process
01-01-0001
Overview of the tendering process When an agency tenders, it releases a request document, setting out the agency’s needs and selection criteria. The request also offers a point of contact over time and forms the basis, amongst other documents, of any subsequent contract with Government. Each tender refers to the Request Conditions and Conditions of Contract. This document outlines contractual expectations and insurance requirements for potential suppliers. It is important that you complete and submit any requested documentation to Tendering Services by the deadline, as late tenders are not accepted. Government Procurement runs regular New to Quotes and Tenders seminars which should be a helpful guide for you to prepare your response. To help you with your tender, each step of the process is explained below: Preparing responses Writing and preparing a response can be time consuming. To help you decide whether it is worthwhile to submit a response, ask yourself: Do you meet the pre-qualification and compliance requirements?  Are you able to meet the qualitative requirements?  Can you fulfil all of the requirements yourself, through sub-contracting arrangements or by establishing a consortium response? Do you have the financial capacity to deliver the requirements of the Request?  Is there an actual or potential conflict of interest that could prevent you from making a response?  Do you already have the resources to do the job?  Is it going to be viable?  Is it within your capacity to do the work?  Are you familiar with the government policies on purchasing? Addressing the selection requirements Selection requirements identify key areas of assessment and indicate the types of information that should be submitted with your offer. Requirements will vary depending on the work that is being requested. Request documents commonly have three types of selection requirements: Pre-qualification Assessed on a Yes/No basis rather than a numeric score, failure to meet any of the pre-qualification requirements will automatically eliminate your bid from further consideration. Compliance and disclosure Assessed on a Yes/No basis rather than a numeric score, failure to meet these requirements may eliminate your bid from further consideration. Qualitative Used to evaluate your ability to fulfil the Request successfully, these requirements are normally weighted. You will need to address all of the selection requirements and, where applicable, detail your claims against each requirement. Under the qualitative criteria, you may be asked to elaborate on: experience methodology  capacity  nominated personnel pricing structure You may also be asked to attend a Tender briefing meeting to clarify details. Changes to Requests Occasionally, the Department of Finance may need to change some of the requirements of a Request. In these circumstances an addendum will be issued. If you have obtained a copy of the Request documents from the Tenders Office, the addendum will automatically be sent to you. If you obtained your documents through Tenders WA, you need to be registered as a business to ensure addenda reach you. Submitting Offers A Request Document will stipulate how to submit the tender in question. Options may include: • upload via the Tenders WA website • in person • postal mail • facsimile. It is your responsibility to ensure your offer is lodged on time. If it is not received in full by the nominated closing time and date, at the nominated location, it is classified as a late tender. Late tender submissions are set aside and cannot be considered, subject to the conditions stated in the Request for Tender documents. Tendering Services releases tender documentation and receives tender response submissions, and can assist with general enquiries relating to the tendering process. Tendering Services is located at: Optima Centre Ground floor, 16 Parkland Road OSBORNE PARK WA 6017 Telephone Number: (08) 6551 2345 Fax: (08) 6551 2333 Email address: tenderingservices@finance.wa.gov.au Hours of operation are from 8:30am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday. Changing your Offer Changes to your submitted offer are possible, provided they are resubmitted before the closing date. Please ensure you clearly mark the revised offer as a replacement for your previous offer. You may withdraw your offer at any time prior to its acceptance. Withdrawal requests must be made in writing. For information please refer to the Request Conditions and Conditions of Contract. Evaluation and award The Western Australian Government’s tender evaluation process is designed to be consistent and to ensure the best outcomes for the State are achieved. This evaluation process is based on the key principles of value for money and open and effective competition. More information about these principles is available from the State Supply Commission. Below is a basic overview of the steps involved in the tender evaluation process: 1. An Evaluation Panel is convened. 2. Tenders are submitted. 3. Offers are assessed for all of the requested information. 4. Panel members assess each offer against the stated requirements. 5. Members of the Evaluation Panel form a consensus on a shortlist of the best value for money offers. 6. Additional information may be requested from the respondents. 7. The preferred supplier(s) is/are selected. 8. An agency officer with appropriate financial authority approves the selection. 9. The relevant Tender Committee endorses the selection. 10. The contract is awarded to the successful respondent. 11. Feedback is provided to unsuccessful respondents upon request. For more information about the evaluation of tenders please refer to the Suppliers Guide to Goods and Services Tendering with Western Australian Government Agencies . Tender feedback Following the evaluation and award of tenders, respondents are informed of the successful supplier and the total price for the maximum contract duration. These details are also published on Tenders WA. Should you be unsuccessful, you can request a post-tender debriefing by the relevant agency. This debriefing addresses areas where you could have improved your offer, as analysed against the selection requirements. It does not include comparisons with any other respondent’s performance. Complaints and feedback If you have a concern about the tendering process, please raise it with the relevant agency as soon as possible. Your feedback assists in the future improvement of the contracting process and associated outcomes. If you are not satisfied with the agency’s response, you can refer the matter to the State Supply Commission, which may undertake an independent review of your complaint. Please note that if a complaint is raised after the contract has been awarded, the Commission cannot overturn the decision. For further information on the complaint handling process please contact the State Supply Commission.

Probity and Accountability
01-01-0001
Probity and Accountability A public authority must be able to demonstrate to suppliers and the community that it conducts its procurement activities with high standards of probity and accountability [1]. “Probity” requires that a public authority conduct its procurement activities ethically, honestly and fairly.  Elements of a procurement culture that promotes and demonstrates high standards of probity include the following: Expected behaviours are articulated and enforced. Officers involved are skilled, knowledgeable and experienced. Appropriate checks and balances are in place at various stages in the procurement process.
