12 October 2017

The Department for Child Protection (DCP) has provided position description’s for leadership roles in the new Finance and Corporate Services area and have begun advertising these senior roles that report to the Chief Financial Officer.

Please find a copy of the recent DCP letter to the PSA here.

The PSA met with DCP on 29 September 2017 regarding proposed changes. The PSA has requested that as per the consultation process DCP provide its consideration of feedback and issues raised in this process. It is expected this will be provided in coming weeks. The PSA has placed DCP on notice that without this information it would likely result in a dispute due to the consultation process.

DCP has also raised that the procurement services which are currently still supported by DECD will need to be set up and positions filled as a priority. It is expected that position descriptions will be provided in coming weeks, prior to any advertisement.

DCP maintain the position that there should not be any adverse outcomes on employees throughout this process, and expect growth in numbers. The PSA encourages members to raise queries or concerns about the structure or consultation process.
