A complete list of Technical Advisory Branch (TAB) "Research" document titles.

Currently waiting for a response from National Disability Insurance Agency, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear National Disability Insurance Agency,

I am requesting access under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act), to the following information:

[ START SCOPE OF REQUEST ]

The Technical Advisory Branch compiles research on particular topics. I am requesting a complete list of all TAB “research” document titles. Known examples include:

–– “Research - Ehlers Danlos Syndrome” (released under FOI 21/22-1232)
–– “Research - Orthostatic Hypotension Causing Syncope and Hemiplegic Migraines” (released under FOI 23/24-0467)
–– “Research Request - Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome” (released under FOI 23/24-0467)
–– “Research Paper - Myalgic encephalomyelitis / Chronic fatigue syndrome” (released under FOI 23/24-1015)

[ END SCOPE OF REQUEST ]

Please be sure to provide my examples to the TAB including the FOI numbers as part of your search, as I understand the titles may vary slightly in their phrasing of “research”, “research request”, “research paper”, or similar, due to when they were first published.

I look forward to your response.

Kind regards,

Emily Lacey

Dear Cooper,

That is incorrect.

I am not asking for any documents from the disclosure log.

I am asking for a complete list of the file names / document titles of all “research” documents the TAB has created. I don’t want a copy of all the documents themselves, just a list of what their names are (like you would see in a file directory / any folder on your computer).

The documents I have listed in my request are examples of what should be included in the list. Imagine there will be many other research documents on other conditions/topics that the TAB holds, and I want to know what the names of those documents are.

Please let me know if you require any further clarifications.

Yours sincerely,
Emily Lacey
