This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Chen_F to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Chen_F

Delivered

Dear Australian Public Service Commission,

I am aware that under former Australian Public Service Commissioner, John Lloyd’s, leadership, Mr Lloyd and the APSC’s senior executive leadership team would liaise and consult with Government senators on the Australian Senate’s Finance and Public Administration Legislation Committee so as to coordinate the asking, and answering, of particular questions at Senate Estimates hearings. Such actions are not only a clear breach of the APS Code of Conduct, but make a mockery of the separation of powers. The Chair of the Finance and Public Administration Legislation Committee is Liberal Senator James Paterson.

Under the FOI Act, I seek access to any emails contained in all of John Lloyd’s email account (including deleted items) that contain the following word (in the body of an email and/or in the addressee fields of an email): “Paterson”.

Relevant documents can be quickly identified by searching “All Outlook Items” in Mr Lloyd’s outlook client for the word: “Paterson”.

I’m happy for the personal information of any person to be redacted from relevant documents except for Mr Lloyd’s and Mr Paterson’s personal information and except for the personal information of any person who was a public servant at the relevant time.

Yours faithfully
F Chen
