Delivered

Dear ABCC - FOI,

Thank you for your letter of 17 April 2020.

The Agency identified 5 documents and consulted with third parties about these documents. The Agency received submissions from and on behalf of third parties and the Agency speculates on the motivation (at least in part) for the submissions.

In circumstances where the identity of the organisation is not disclosed and the schedule of documents does not contain a document with the description “contract’, the Agency reveals that the total contract value is already publicly disclosed on the Australian Government website AusTender.

The Agency has decided to release the 5 redacted documents. However, those consulted have review and appeal rights and the FOI Act prevents document access being given before these review and appeal rights have been exhausted, which may change the access decision.

I await the outcome of the review and appeal rights of those consulted.

Yours sincerely,

JS
