Dear Mr Eisman,

 

Thank you for your email, and I apologise for the delay in responding to

I advise that the Head Agreement between The University of Queensland and
the Confucius Institute is publicly-available from our [1]UQ Responds
webpage.  Regarding the remainder of the documents to which you are

·         be in the approved form and be accompanied by the application
fee;

·         give sufficient information concerning the documents to which
access is sought;

·         state an address to which notices under this Act may be sent to
the applicant; and

·         state whether access to the document is sought for the benefit
of, or use of the document by, the applicant or another entity.

 

The current application form for the Queensland jurisdiction can be found
at the bottom-right of the [2]http://www.rti.qld.gov.au website (look for
the link to “RTI application form”).  In order for your application to be

If you wish to continue with your application, please correct the
deficiencies as noted above, and return your application to the University

Dear Mr Eisman,

 

APPLICATION FOR ACCESS TO DOCUMENTS

 

I refer to your application received by the University on 29 January 2020,
in which you sought access to documents under the Right to Information Act
2009 (RTI Act).

 

DECISION

 

In my correspondence to you dated 13 March 2020, I advised you that your
application was non-compliant, and provided further advice on how to make
your application compliant.  I have not received a response to the
aforementioned correspondence, and the deficiencies in your application
have not been corrected.

 

Pursuant to section 33(6) of the RTI Act, I have therefore decided on this
date to refuse to deal with your application.  Please note that this does
not preclude you from submitting a new application at any stage.

 

INTERNAL REVIEW

 

If you are not satisfied with my decision (or any part of it), you may
apply to the University for an internal review under section 80 of the RTI
Act.  An application for an internal review must be made in writing, and
any such application must be lodged within 20 business days of the date of
this decision.

 

Please refer to the University’s [1]Internal Review Applications webpage
for more information.  Applications may be emailed to [2][UQ request email]

 

EXTERNAL REVIEW

 

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of the internal review, or if
you wish to proceed directly to an external review, you may apply in
writing to the Office of the Information Commissioner (OIC) for an
external review of the decision under section 85 of the RTI Act.  It is
not necessary to have an internal review before applying for an external
review.

 

Any application for external review must be made in writing to the Office
of the Information Commissioner within 20 business days of the date of
this decision or the date of the internal review decision (whichever is
later).  Please refer to the OIC’s [3]Apply for external review webpage
for more information.

 

Please don’t hesitate to contact me on +61 7 3443 1148 or via email to
[4][UQ request email] if you have any queries or require any further
information. 

 

Regards,

 

Justin Rofe
