Subject: Freedom of Information request - MyGovID: source code and technical documentation
From: Fraser Tweedale <>
To: FOI requests at ATO <>

Dear Australian Taxation Office,

I request the following information under the Freedom of Information Act 1982:

(1). Source code of the MyGovID iOS and Android apps, and server applications that form part of the MyGovID system, including build scripts, manifests, software license terms, and media assets (icons, audio files, etc).

(2). Technical documentation about the MyGovID system, such as API documentation, architecture diagrams, security assessments, technical presentation slides, "whitepapers" and similar documents.

If it assists in the expeditious processing of my request, source code may be delivered as a "snapshot" or export of source repositories, in ZIP, "tarball" or similar format. However, the full development history is preferred.

Yours faithfully,

Fraser Tweedale
