available for inspection, free of charge, at the lead agency’s head office on any working day; and

prepare a report on the operation of the agreement at the intervals required by the Commissioner under section 96U; and

(c)

carry out any other responsibilities imposed by this Part.

A lead agency does not need to comply with subsection (1)(a)(ii) if the relevant Minister designates an Internet site maintained by or on behalf of another public sector agency as the Internet site where a copy of the agreement is to be made accessible free of charge.
