The Aboriginal Representative Body acknowledges that the State has accountability requirements associated with the release of public funds under clause 7.
For the purpose of meeting those accountability requirements associated with the release of public funds under clause 7, the Aboriginal Representative Body will give the warranties detailed in Schedule B before any and each time funding is provided in accordance with clause 7, if such funding is to be allocated through the Self-Determination Fund.
8.2 Affirmation of warranties
Each payment of monies by the State in accordance with clause 7 is conditional on the Aboriginal Representative Body affirming in writing the warranties in Schedule B have been complied with at the time of the first payment and, for subsequent payments, at all times since the last payment.
8.3 Breach of warranty
If any of the warranties affirmed by the Aboriginal Representative Body under clause 8.2 are breached, the State may withhold funding agreed under clause 7, if such funding is to be allocated through the Self-Determination Fund, until such time as the Aboriginal Representative Body cures a breach of any warranty, or the State waives this requirement.
If the Aboriginal Representative Body fails to cure the breach within 90 days, the Aboriginal Representative Body and the State agree to enter into good faith discussions regarding how to remedy the breach.
Nothing in this clause prevents the Parties commencing the Dispute Resolution Process in accordance with clause 16 of this Agreement.
