Budget Information Management System

The Budget Information Management System (BIMS) is a critical whole‑of‑Government business tool that will be used by all Government agencies to support the State Budget function. The annual Budget papers, revised estimate reports and financial advice to the Treasurer will all be dependent on the information provided by this system.

The existing system, the Budget Management System (BMS), has aged and poses a risk to the State Budget function and has limitations in regard to its capabilities, including for example, longer range fiscal modelling. Treasury is replacing BMS with a modern, flexible, supported and more efficient system that will:

       remove the risk of disruption to the State Budget function;

       be more responsive and provide a broader information base to support Government decisions; and

       introduce greater flexibility and adaptability to meet future requirements.

The BIMS Project was initially established in 2011 to investigate options for the replacement of the existing system. Phases one and two of the project have been completed and include documentation of existing processes, the establishment of high‑level functional requirements, a review of other jurisdictions' budget management systems and a market assessment of potential solutions through a Request for Information process. Phase three, which will be completed by 30 June 2015, involves the development of detailed system requirements to enable the project to proceed to a Request for Tender for the implementation of a commercial off the shelf solution.

The next phase of the BIMS Project, scheduled for completion in 2018, will involve activities to select a solution, implement and provide post implementation support.


 

Centralised Property Management

The first stage of this Government commitment is the implementation of centralised management and coordination of major office accommodation leases for Government within the Hobart CBD. This strategic approach to major leases will lead to more efficient and effective management of the Government's leased office accommodation.

Treasury has commenced a review of major Hobart CBD office leases that are subject to renewal in the remainder of 2015 and is working with agencies to ensure lease negotiations optimise whole‑of‑government outcomes.

Government Fleet Savings Initiative

In the 2014-15 State Budget, the Government committed to reducing the operating cost of running the passenger and light commercial Government motor vehicle fleet.  In order to achieve fleet savings agencies have indicated that a range of utilisation and optimisation measures are being implemented to reduce fleet operating costs. These savings measures include:

       reducing vehicles;

       improved utilisation of existing vehicles; and

       selecting smaller vehicles.

Savings targets are on track since the Government's commitments were made in 2014. Treasury will continue to regularly monitor and report, on a whole-of-government basis, agency progress towards achieving fleet operating cost savings targets. Further information is contained in chapter 3 of this Budget Paper.

Charter of Budget Responsibility Bill

Treasury has commenced the preparation of amendments to the Charter of Budget Responsibility Act 2007 to implement the changes detailed in the 2014‑15 Budget. It is proposed that amendments will be tabled in Parliament in late 2015.

These amendments will also require a report on the long‑run sustainability of the Government's finances to be released by the Treasurer every five years. The first report will be released in 2015‑16.

Financial Management Bill

Treasury has developed a draft Financial Management Bill to replace the Public Account Act 1986 and the Financial Management and Audit Act 1990.

The new Financial Management Bill has been drafted to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and transparency of government financial management.

The Financial Management Bill is expected to be tabled in late 2015. Subject to the Bill being passed, Treasury will be working with stakeholder groups, providing targeted communications and training prior to the planned transition to the new legislation on 1 July 2017.

Government Business Enterprise/State-owned Company Reform

Retirement Benefits Fund Review

Treasury commenced a strategic review of the Retirement Benefits Fund (RBF) in 2013 to identify the most appropriate means to provide superannuation to public sector employees and members of RBF into the future. Treasury engaged PricewaterhouseCoopers Securities Ltd to provide advice on the Review.

In July 2014, following receipt of the Stage Two Report, the Treasurer asked RBF, Tasplan and Quadrant to work together to develop options for the delivery of the accumulation and the defined benefit schemes they believe should be considered by Government.

The Government is presently considering these options in consultation with the three funds to identify its preferred reform model and to best protect the interests of RBF members and minimise financial risks to the Government and maximise the economic outcomes for Tasmania.

Forestry

In 2014, the Government established a review to examine the current Forestry Tasmania operating model, its commercial arrangements and constraints and how these are affecting Forestry Tasmania's financial performance. The review also identified options for the short‑term to limit the losses and consider the current and future role of Government in public production native forests.

The Government's objectives for the review were to:

       examine the most appropriate options to deliver economically viable and sustainable forest management and wood production outcomes for the State;

       consider the Forestry Tasmania operating model, commercial arrangements and constraints and the impact on its financial performance; and

       identify options for the short‑term to limit the losses and consider the current and future role of Government in public production forests.

The Treasurer and the Minister for Resources appointed a Steering Committee to conduct the review. The Steering Committee was chaired by the Secretary of Treasury and included representatives from the Departments of Premier and Cabinet and State Growth and the Chair of Forestry Tasmania. Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu was appointed to assist with the review.

Deloitte and the Steering Committee provided reports to the Government in April 2015.

Following consideration of the reports, the Government agreed in principle that Forestry Tasmania would transition to a composite operating model that focuses Forestry Tasmania on managing public native forest and optimises the scope for private sector participation in bringing the public sector forest resources to market. It also agreed in principle that the transition and operating deficits would be funded in the short‑term by the sale of Forestry Tasmania's hardwood plantations and further cost reductions in Forestry Tasmania.

The Government will consult with industry regarding implementation of this decision and then finalise its preferred approach. The Board of Forestry Tasmania will be responsible for managing the transition.

The focus for 2015‑16 will be on industry consultation, selection of a preferred composite operating model, undertaking an expression of interest process for residue solutions, the plantation sale due diligence and implementation.

Liquor Licensing - Review of Act

Treasury is currently undertaking a review of the Liquor Licensing Act 1990 with the aim of providing Government with options to:

       provide for a more transparent licence and permit process and more flexible and effective enforcement processes;

       strengthen existing consumer responsibilities;

       align the regulation of liquor with the key strategies of the Tasmanian Alcohol Action Framework; and

       clarify Government regulatory responsibilities and increase the regulators' ability to undertake these responsibilities effectively.

It is anticipated that legislation giving effect to agreed recommendations coming out of the review will be introduced in September 2015.

Parliament Square

The redevelopment of parliament square will revitalise the cultural, business and heritage aspects of Hobart's cityscape, providing a strong link from the city centre to the waterfront. Following an extensive three stage tender process to divest the site, Citta Property Group Pty Ltd was identified as the preferred tenderer.

A sales contract with Citta was negotiated that included conditions to ensure the Government's long‑term interest in the site is protected. Following completion of the sale and transfer of the land in December 2014, construction of the new office tower and restoration works associated with the heritage buildings in Davey Street has commenced.

Further information on the project is provided at www.treasury.tas.gov.au/parliamentsquare.

Revenue Collection - Compliance Activities

This initiative involves the appointment of two additional revenue compliance inspectors to enable the Compliance Section of the State Revenue Office to accelerate the audit of compliance targets, thereby protecting and improving the State's revenue base, and ensuring that the correct amount of taxation revenue is being collected from taxpayers. Activity will primarily be focussed in the areas of land and payroll tax, adopting a risk management framework. It is expected that this additional investment in compliance activities will be more than offset by additional tax revenues arising from taxpayers more fully complying with their tax obligations.

State Revenue System Replacement - Payroll Tax and Duties

The State Revenue Office is currently replacing the State's ageing revenue collection system with a modern application, Client View, to increase efficiency, improve taxpayer experience and data quality, and remove legacy technology risks.

Client View is a taxation collection and revenue system that presents a consistent view of client details, net debtor situation and service delivery communication events across all revenue lines. The Client View Project consists of three phases.

The first phase for the management of land tax was completed in early 2015. Completion of this phase enabled the State Revenue Office to successfully complete the 2014‑15 land tax issue of over 60 000 notices in the new Client View System

Phase two of the project is underway and will extend into 2015‑16. This phase involves development of the modules for the management of payroll tax and insurance and motor vehicle duties.

The final phase, relating to duty on property transfers, will be undertaken in 2016‑17, allowing the retirement of the ageing Tasmanian Revenue and Collection System.

White Papers on Reform of the Federation and Taxation Reform

The Australian Government has committed to producing White Papers on the Reform of the Federation and the Reform of Australia's Taxation System for release in the lead up to the next Australian Government election.

The Federation White Paper will consider reform to Commonwealth‑State roles and responsibilities, vertical fiscal imbalance and horizontal fiscal equalisation. It aims to clarify roles and responsibilities between all levels of Government to ensure that, as far as possible, each level of Government is sovereign in its own sphere.

Issue papers have been released for the five areas of the Federation White Paper:

       A Federation for Our Future;

       Health;

       Education;

       Housing and Homelessness; and

       Federal Financial Relations.

The Federation Green Paper is expected to be publicly released in the second half of 2015.

A Discussion Paper on Taxation was released in March 2015. The Discussion Paper was focussed on how an efficient and fair tax system should be structured. Work has also commenced on potential reform options to be covered in the Taxation Green Paper, which is expected to be released in the second half of 2015.

Australia's substantial vertical fiscal imbalance and long‑term fiscal pressures for all levels of government mean that the Federation White Paper will be closely linked to reforms considered in the Taxation White Paper and will necessitate close interaction between the two processes. Treasury will continue to work closely with the Department of Premier and Cabinet and other agencies to respond to these two processes.

Notes:

1.   The satisfaction rating of the quality of the Departmentís services is obtained from the results of the Department's stakeholder survey. The survey has been undertaken every second year and was last conducted in November 2014 for 2013‑14. The Department is moving to conduct annual surveys, with the next stakeholder survey scheduled for November 2015.

2.   An unqualified audit opinion from the Auditor‑General indicates that the financial reports are a true and accurate reflection of the Government's finances.

3.   The vacancy rate is the proportion of all owned and leased office space managed by the Department that is currently vacant and available for occupation.

4.   The Tasmanian Risk Management Fund includes a self insurance scheme for the workers' compensation liabilities of participating agencies. An indication of the Government's management of workers' compensation claims can be obtained by comparing the workers' compensation contributions paid by agencies to the Fund with the workers' compensation premiums charged by private insurers. The measure is calculated by comparing average agency workers' compensation contributions, as a proportion of salaries, with the premium rate of private insurers. The change in the Fund's performance for 2013‑14 from 2012‑13 is mainly due to the private insurers' contribution rate increasing.

5.   The whole‑of‑government financial reports published in 2013‑14 were the Preliminary Outcomes Report 2012‑13, Treasurer's Annual Financial Report 2012‑13, September Quarterly Report 2013‑14, December Quarterly Report 2013‑14 and the March Quarterly Report 2013‑14.

6.   The positive variance to the Budget estimates in both 2012‑13 and 2013‑14 relates to variations in the performance of the businesses largely due to external influences impacting on profitability as well as uncertainty relating to the impacts of the energy reform process.

Notes:

1.   The satisfaction rating of the quality of the Departmentís services is obtained from the results of the Department's stakeholder survey. The survey has been undertaken every second year and was last conducted in November 2014 for 2013‑14. The Department is moving to conduct annual surveys, with the next stakeholder survey scheduled for November 2015.

2.   In providing revenue management services to the Commissioner of State Revenue, the Department seeks to ensure that taxpayers are well informed of their obligations and that tax debt stress and overdue taxation debts are minimised. Accordingly, the target is for overdue taxation debt to be a very small percentage of total taxation revenue.

3.   While recognising that the Tasmanian Gaming Commission (TGC) is an independent statutory body, a measure of the quality of the services provided is the proportion of all formal recommendations contained in decision papers that are accepted by the TGC.

4.   Objections may be lodged against assessments issued to clients or decisions of the Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner or a delegate of the Commissioner. The Department seeks to ensure that the original assessments and decisions are accurate and that the number of successful objections to these are minimised. Accordingly, the target is for over 80 per cent of objections to result in the original assessment being confirmed as accurate. The result for 2013‑14 was influenced by a number of complex cases and also matters where further information was provided by the taxpayer that supported their objection.

5.   An indication of the efficiency of the revenue management services provided by the Department can be gained by comparing total taxation revenue collected with the operating costs required to administer and collect that revenue.

6.   The Department assists the Licensing Board by receiving applications for licences, undertaking investigations on behalf of the Commissioner for Licensing and providing recommendations to the Board on whether the applicant is qualified in accordance with the requirements of the Liquor Licensing Act. The measure relates to the time taken by the Department to undertake its investigations and prepare submissions for the monthly Board meetings.

Notes:

1.†† The increase in Appropriation revenue ‑ works & services from 2015‑16 reflects Capital Investment Program funding.

2.†† The increase in Other revenue in 2015‑16 reflects revised arrangements for the annual Microsoft agreement whereby Treasury pays the full cost and recovers the annual cost from the agencies involved.

3.†† The increase in Depreciation and amortisation from 2017‑18 reflects amortisation following completion of the State Revenue System Replacement (Payroll Tax and Duties) Project in 2016‑17 and the Budget Information Management System Project in 2017‑18.

4.†† The increase in Supplies and Consumables in 2015-16 reflects revised arrangements for the annual Microsoft agreement whereby Treasury pays the full cost and recovers the annual cost from the agencies involved and due to costs associated with the Community Support Levy funded Social and Economic Impact Study of Gambling in Tasmania.
