Dear Dean

 

Thank you for your email to the Department of Finance (Finance) requesting
access to the following:

 

“I’m asking you today about the donations made towards the 2020 Australian
Bushfires, Did the firefighters, RFS volunteer’s, SES and the towns and
families that where affected receive these donations, or what percentage
of the donations did they receive as nothing was ever released thru the
media.”

 

Under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act), requests may be made
for ‘…access to a document of an agency’ (subsection 15(1) of the FOI
Act).  At this stage, your request is for access to information.  That is,
you have asked the department questions rather than sought access to
specific documents and we do not consider that you have made a valid
request under section 15 of the FOI Act.

 

Having regard to subsection 15(1), we will not proceed further with this
request. However, further information on how to make a valid FOI request
can be found here:

Please contact the FOI Team on the below contact details if you wish to
discuss your request.

 

Kind regards,

FOI Officer
