Chief Executives review 6 New Services A new Archives Office was opened in Alice Springs on 20 November 2004 to provide an archives service to the central Australian community. An active role was undertaken in the Indigenous Employment Careers Development Strategy as well as the new apprenticeship initiative by the Northern Territory Government. These programs are already facilitating an increased participation by indigenous people in the Northern Territory Government. An international computer driving licence trial program was concluded and this is now provided for all agencies. DCIS now provides agencies with a procurement profile of all their payments each six months and this feeds into their agency Procurement Management Plans. A central entry level recruitment service was established and trialled. This covers the automatic recruitment to AO1 and AO2 positions across all agencies that no longer have to advertise for these positions. A new service within Contract and Procurement Services was established, entitled Advisory Services. Staff from this service visit agencies and discuss a range of tendering and contract issues. This has resulted in an increased usage of the CAPS product by agencies. Our People The retention of staff received particular emphasis with exit interviews being conducted to better determine casual factors. A career self management program was introduced to assist staff manage their careers. The People Excellence Program was also revamped to include career aspirations. A Procurement Training Program was introduced for all staff engaged in purchasing. A staff involvement strategy was also launched in June. Finally, I can conclude by noting the commitment by DCIS to continually service agencies in a customer focus manner and I look forward to engaging with agencies over the next 12 months. 14 October 2004 . Richard Galton Chief Executive
