All reports produced by McKinsey to DPMC

Andy Johnson made this Freedom of Information request to Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet

The request was refused by Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.

From: Andy Johnson

Delivered

Dear Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet,

I would like to request a copy of all reports / documents delivered by consulting firm McKinsey & Compang to the Department since 1990. In addition, I would like to request a copy of each invoice paid to McKinsey for each report (including $ fees paid, rate card applied, and other commercial terms).

Given the recent, significant public interest in McKinsey due to their controversial activities in anti democratic or corrupt governments such as South Africa, Saudi Arabia and Malaysia (1MDB), I request that the FOIA request fees be waived.

Yours faithfully,

Andy Johnson

FOI/2020/048

 

Dear Mr Johnson

 

Thank you for your email dated 15 February 2020, received by the
Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (the Department), in which
you made a request to the Department under the Freedom of Information Act
1982 (the FOI Act) in the following terms:

 

I would like to request a copy of all reports / documents delivered by
consulting firm McKinsey & Compang to the Department since 1990. In
addition, I would like to request a copy of each invoice paid to McKinsey
for each report (including $ fees paid, rate card applied, and other
commercial terms).

 

Given the recent, significant public interest in McKinsey due to their
controversial activities in anti democratic or corrupt governments such as
South Africa, Saudi Arabia and Malaysia (1MDB), I request that the FOIA
request fees be waived.

 

Timeframe for receiving your decision

 

We received your request on 15 February 2020 and the 30 day statutory
period for processing your request commenced from the day after that date.
You should therefore expect a decision from us by 16 March 2020. The
period of 30 days may be extended in certain circumstances. We will advise
you if there is any extension of time.

 

Charges

 

Agencies may decide that an applicant is liable to pay a charge in respect
of a request for access to documents. If the Department decides that you
are liable to pay a charge, we will send you a preliminary assessment of
the charge as soon as possible.

 

Publication of documents

 

Please note that information released under the FOI Act may later be
published online on our disclosure log at
[1]https://www.pmc.gov.au/government/depart...,
subject to certain exceptions. If you think you might wish to raise any
objections to the publication of any of the information which may be
released to you please contact us by email at [2][DPMC request email].  If you
do wish to object to the publication of information, you would need to
provide supporting reasons.

 

Exclusion of officers’ names and contact details

 

For documents that fall within scope of the request, it is the
Department’s policy to withhold:

·         any person’s signature;

·         the names and contact details of Australian Public Service
officers not in the Senior Executive Service (SES);

·         the mobile or direct numbers of SES officers;

·         the names and contact details of Ministerial staff at a level
below Chief of Staff.

 

The names and other details of SES officers will not be withheld unless
there is some reason for that information to be exempt from release. If
you require signatures, the names and contact details of non-SES officers
or Ministerial staff below the level of Chief of Staff, or the mobile or
direct numbers of SES officers please let us know at [3][DPMC request email] so
the decision-maker may consider; otherwise we will take it that you agree
to that information being excluded from the scope of your request (that
is, the information will be treated as irrelevant and redacted from any
documents for release).

 

We will write again when the Department has more information.  Further
information on FOI processing can be found at the website of the Office of
the Australian Information Commissioner

Yours sincerely
