Aboriginal gallery: rushed business case yet immediate start?

p2442 Dal McIver SM

 

Some Open Questions to Tourism Central Australia, whose chairperson Dale McIver (pictured) is clamouring for an immediate start to the National Aboriginal Art Gallery. It will cost the taxpayer at least $50m and some estimate up to $500m, not including operational costs. A national accountancy firm was given just five weeks to draw up a  "Comprehensive" Business Case.  ERWIN CHLANDA puts questions to Ms McIver and the government and gets no answers.

 

UPDATE 10.08am December 4: Statement from Dr Crees; editor's note about deadlines in the tender documents.

Gallery business case far from 'well underway'

2570 gallery tender SM

Two years in power, the government is only just seeking tenders for making a business case for a project Michael Gunner inherited from his CLP predecessor. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

 

UPDATE 4.50pm: The tender requirements are for ANZC Hill precinct, in direct contradiction to assurances by government official Scott Lovett two days ago that no decision on the site for the gallery has been made.

 

UPDATE August 20, 6.30pm:

The Opposition says this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build an iconic national landmark; "We would expect that the Labor government communicated the full details of the proposal to the community, prior to making a decision on the location for the gallery."
