Abstract: Final Biannual Report prepared in accordance with section 15 of the Coordinator-General for Remote Indigenous Services Act 2009: - s15 The Coordinator General must prepare and give to the Minister twice each year, or as otherwise required by the Minister, a report on: a) the development and delivery, during the period since the Coordinator General last gave a report to the Minister under this section, of government services and facilities in each of the specified remote communities … including through: (i) improvements to the coordination of the development and delivery of such services and facilities; and (ii) reforms to the development and delivery of such services and facilities; and b) the progress that has been made during that period towards achieving the Closing the Gap targets in the specified remote communities. While this report is titled Final Biannual Report and completes the series of reporting that began in 2009, it does not cover a full six month period but concludes reporting in line with the Government decision that my Office ceases operation as of 31 January 2014. Therefore this report is a closing statement from my Office which I trust will provide you with some helpful advice in relation to lessons learned from the National Partnership Agreement on Remote Service Delivery and will inform your deliberations for the future direction of remote Indigenous policies and service delivery: - Making sure children go to school so they receive a good education; - Working with leaders, communities, individuals and employers to get adults into work; - Making sure communities are safer to live in and that the rule of law is applied; and - Achieving constitutional recognition for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
