Buswell wants more reports

Troy Buswell admits there has been no savings from the new housing maintenance contract.

Housing Minister, Troy Buswell, says the KPMG audit in to the Department of Housing needs to be further refined before he comments on its findings. Paul Murray spoke to Mr Buswell about the audit and asked if the minister would axe the contract or not.

  • Buswell clearly has no idea what the Department is doing and Barnett has no idea what Buswell is doing, meanwhile Transfield are loving it and ripping us off due to their ignorance. Transfield tendered 15% less than the estimated cost of the contract work, then have to emply others to do the work who are working at up to 20% less than the estimated cost. A kindergarten kid could work out that they have to use substandard parts or overcharge just to cover costs.

  • How come Mr. Buswell if there are 12400 overdue jobs as of March, us sub-contractors who actually do the maintenance work have no work. It started falling off early January. The only reason as I have been told (in late Feb) the jobs have stop coming is that Transfield has run out of money and are way over budget. We have been told for the time being only Emergence and Priority 1 work will only be getting done as there is no money for any other work. Cause if there were some money left then we would be working flat out. I have doing this homeswest work since Transfeild took over. And work has fallen off before but not as much as this.

  • I would like to know how many people have been evicted from their houses for failure to maintain property standards when the fault lay with the maintenance contractor failing to do the work requested or failing to do it to the requisite standard.

  • Another example of why "privateisation"does not work. Clearly, this portfolio is above Mr Buswells'interlect.

    Laurie TYLER Tuesday 20 March, 2012 - 2:12 PM
  • What is going on with this guy? He is clearly not very commercially savvy if he thinks that looking at the empty house numbers and the level of complaints recieved is an appropriate way to monitor a portfolio. What is really scary is that he now relies on KPMG to do his job for him???? what happened to common sence and the minister being responsible for his job!

    Further to this, why has Mr Barnett not sacked him yet? Buswell seems to be, in Barnetts eyes, a jack of all trades. But i submit to you that in the eyes of the public he is clearly a master of none.

    Cheers,
