In a fascinating move the Chief Minister is asking for ideas on how to build one mega administrative centre to house all of the ACT Public Service.
Presumably this would mean next time there is a horrendous cockup it’s easier to haul the miscreants before the Chief Minister to explain their indolence and incompetence.
Mr Stanhope doesn’t put it quite like that:
Centralising ACT Government services in one sought location would deliver significant benefits for employees and the community, Chief Minister Jon Stanhope said today.
“The co-location of Government departments would result in improved workforce efficiencies, increased productivity and bring extra vitality to Civic.
“The consolidation of 17 separate shopfront locations will also result in major improvements to the delivery of ACT Government services for all Canberrans.
The 53,000sqm monolith is going to take over the parking spaces next to the Legislative Assembly.
