South Australian Tourism Commission

80 The Hon. J.S. LEE (Deputy Leader of the Opposition) ().6 July 2022). Can the Minister for Tourism adviseā€”As there is a cut of 6 FTEs from the South Australian Tourism Commission in 2022-23 compared to the 2021-22 estimated result, down from 129.0 to 123.0, can the minister explain why these FTEs have been cut from SATC and which positions and programs have been affected?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries): The Minister for Tourism has advised:

The South Australian Tourism Commission's (SATC's) FTE cap as at 30 June 2022 was 129. The SATC's FTE cap will reduce to 123 in 2022-23 due to savings measures.

The SATC's actual FTE as at 30 June 2022 was 110. The SATC will be well within its FTE cap of 123 for 2022-23 and therefore will not be required to reduce any positions or programs.

The SATC has achieved all previous FTE savings targets and will work through a workforce strategy to realise any future FTE savings if required.
