The Minister for Finance has released a statement which indicates a ‘competitive tender process’ will be undertaken over the next 12 to 18 months to test the market on the capacity of a private operator to upgrade and operate the ASIC registry.
ASIC performs a vital function for Australia’s economy by maintaining a transparent and efficient database of businesses and companies, and the Traralgon-based staff provide an outstanding service to our nation. I commend the ASIC staff and strongly support them in their ongoing employment in Traralgon.
As a member of The Nationals, I’m a strong believer in the decentralisation of public sector jobs whenever it is feasible and ASIC staff have made a valuable social and economic contribution to the Latrobe Valley for more than 20 years.
