Dear Australian Customs and Border Protection Service,

2. Was the design in-house, or through a contractor?
3. How much did it cost if through a contractor?
4. How many labour hours were spent creating the Border Force logo if in-house and how large was the team (including a breakdown by APS classification)?
5. Please release all correspondence relating to the design of the Border Logo.

Yours faithfully,

Daniel

Good afternoon Daniel

 

I refer to your email of 3 July 2014, and note that paragraphs 1-4 of your
email consist of questions, rather than a request for documents.

 

In order for a request to be valid for the purposes of section 15(2)(b) of
the FOI Act, it must provide such information concerning the document you
are seeking access to as to reasonably enable an officer of this Service
to identify it.  Given that these parts of your request are currently
questions, they do not constitute a valid request for the purposes of
section 15(2)(b).

 

In addition, it would assist the Australian Customs and Border Protection
Service (ACBPS) if you could be more specific in relation to the logo to
which you are referring.

 

The Australian Border Force will be stood up on 1 July 2015, as announced
by the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection on 9 May 2014.  As
such, no logo currently exists for the Australian Border Force.

 

As part of its reform programme, the ACBPS published the document
[1]'Blueprint for Reform 2013-2018' in July 2013.  Within that document,
it was identified that the future workforce capabilities in ACBPS would
focus on Trade and Customs, Border Force, Intelligence and Support. Four
icons representing each of these career streams were developed for the
purposes of visual representation within the document; this includes an
icon to represent the Border Force vocation—not the Australian Border
Force. It was this icon that was displayed as a backdrop during the
Minister’s press conference on 3 July 2014.

 

In the circumstances, could you please confirm whether you wish to proceed
with your request for access to documents dated 9 July 2014, and if so
clarify the scope of your request so as to identify the documents you are
seeking access to?  ACBPS may then be able to consider whether it holds
any relevant documents.

 

With kind regards

FOI Coordinator

I refer to my email to you of 15 July 2014, below, in which ACBPS provided

unable to proceed with your request as this time.
