Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Yes, we need to develop some baseline understanding of what communities require throughout the north for funding things like

utilities. Once we have that and work the figures into the formula, it will then be up to the divisional education councils to deal with the yearly fluctuations that can occur. We would hope that things would average out over a period of time. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. How soon does the Minister think that this kind of baseline information data would be available? Would it be during the next fiscal year that we could expect this discretion on surplus dollars to be given to the boards? Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. For the record, divisional education councils already have that kind of discretion on surplus dollars if they are able to find ways to save monies. I would expect that utilities will be worked into the formula within the next two fiscal years and we will be able to ensure that all funds are transferred by way of formula. Boards will then have complete jurisdiction in all areas. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker, and thank you, Mr. Minister. The Minister has referred to the area of utilities and leases, surplus in that area. In fact, the South Slave Divisional Education Council also returned $408,000 under the heading of personnel infrastructure, and I am wondering if this change will also affect this area when there is a savings? Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Question 37-13(7): Economic Strategy For Nunavut

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Minister responsible for RWED, Mr. Kakfwi. Mr. Speaker, a number of months ago this government awarded a $500,000 contract to Roland Bailey and Associates to develop two economic strategies one for the west, and one for Nunavut. I wonder if the Minister could update me or refresh my memory as to where this stands to date, especially as it relates to the Nunavut Strategy? Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. The contract was given to Bailey and Associates last spring. The intent was to develop an economic strategy for Nunavut and for the western Northwest Territories. In the end, the agreement was to let Nunavut develop their own strategy at a time of their own choosing and we focused on developing a paper that would outline an economic strategy for the western Arctic. The initial draft was given to the government in November, we asked for substantive revisions and it came back in February as a discussion paper. The contract has been considered fulfilled and Bailey and Associates have finished their work and their contract with us as a government. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, is the Minister saying that, just for point of clarification, that the portion of the contract that was awarded to Bailey and Associates to do the economic strategy for Nunavut is now in the hands of another company, corporation or consultant to do that work? Is that correct?
