KEY RESULT AREAS NTEC ANNUAL REPORT 2006-07 PAGE 30 OF 48 9. Future training and development challenges include: Building electoral expertise in the casual election workforce; Enhancing the skill sets of existing employees in the limited windows of opportunity afforded by ad-hoc elections; Electoral expertise is a specialist area and many development opportunities are only afforded from inter-jurisdiction secondments which are not regularly available; Preparation of training materials in electronic format as an alternative delivery mode; and Rotating project allocations in election programs to expand staff knowledge base. 5.5 REPORT UNDER SECTION 7 OF THE CARERS RECOGNITION ACT Two staff members of the Commission requested and were granted carers leave during the reporting year. Since 1995, the Electoral Act has provided that carers of people who are unable to attend a polling place on polling day are eligible to apply for a postal vote. The carer may apply for a single election or on an ongoing basis as a registered postal voter. The Commission plans to contact Carers NT to ensure this service is offered to all carers before the next election. 5.6 RECORDS MANAGEMENT In respect of the Commissioners responsibilities pursuant to Section 131 of the Information Act, the agency has implemented processes to achieve compliance with the archives and records management provisions as prescribed in Part 9 of the Information Act. 5.7 IT DIRECTIONS The 2005 Legislative Assembly Election Report, identified that the Commissions website and election management system would need upgrading prior to the next Legislative Assembly election. The goal is to fully integrate both systems and deliver real time dynamic information to the public during peak election periods. A project plan has been developed to deliver an enhanced website. The next phase will concentrate on the integration of a new election management system with the enhanced website for the next Legislative Assembly election.
