Your request for documents
was framed in the fol owing way:
‘…I request access to any documents in the possession of the Office of the
Commonwealth Ombudsman that show that consideration of the number of
capped SES positions in an agency should ever be a relevant consideration when
evaluating the classification for a group of duties to be performed in an Agency.
Pursuant to the FOI Act, I also request access to any documents in the possession
of the Office of the Commonwealth Ombudsman that show that a role is capable
of being classified at more than one classification, depending on the complexity of
the group of duties to be performed, when one of the proposed classifications is
Senior Executive Band 1…’
