responsible administrative unit, in relation to a contract, means an administrative unit established under subsection 54(2) of the Self‑Government Act the functions of which include the subject‑matter of the contract.

the Act means the A.C.T. Self‑Government (Consequential Provisions) Act 1988.

3  Commonwealth contracts relating to Territory functions

             (1)  The Territory is substituted for the Commonwealth as a party to any contract.

             (2)  Any liability of the Commonwealth under a contract which had accrued immediately before Self‑Government Day continues to be a liability of the Commonwealth.

             (3)  Where a contract, or a document that relates to a contract refers to a person or matter specified in column 1 of an item in Schedule 2, the reference shall be taken to be a reference to the person or matter specified in column 2 of that item.

             (4)  Where:

                     (a)  a contract or a document that relates to a contract refers to an Ordinance of the Australian Capital Territory that has become an enactment within the meaning of the Self‑Government Act or by virtue of subsection 10(3) or 12(2) or (3) of the Act; and

                     (b)  the short title of the enactment is amended by a law of the Australian Capital Territory;

each reference in the contract or document:

                     (c)  to the short title of that enactment—shall be read as a reference to the short title of that enactment as so amended; and

                     (d)  to the enactment otherwise than by its short title—shall be read as if for the word “Ordinance”, there were substituted the word “Act”.

4  Citation of certain A.C.T. laws
