Dear Department of Human Services,

I would like a copy of all "bug reports" or "IT Incidents" raised on the system responsible for data matching between the ATO and Centrelink in the last 3 months.

I would also like a copy of the Incident or Problem record for all instances in the last 3 months where any of Centrelink's "core" systems (Online Services, MyGov, or the Data Matching System) were fully or partially unavailable.

Please initially consider this a request under administrative access if possible. If it cannot be processed in this way, please process it as a formal "Freedom of Information" request.

Yours faithfully,

Ben Fairless

Dear FOI.LEGAL.TEAM,

Thank you for your clarification request.

-- General Information - IT Incidents and Bug Reports--
In "IT Speak" when a computer system or service doesn't work, end-users (people who use the system or service) generally report that to a Service Desk or Helpdesk.

If the Helpdesk is following good record keeping practices, they will normally raise an Incident (it can be called other things, but ITIL calls it an incident). This can be escalated to other teams, or resolved directly by the helpdesk/service desk (depending on how the relevant Helpdesk is setup).

When a pattern of incidents is raised, this can be converted into a Bug Report or Problem report (again, the words differ depending on who you work with). This is usually assigned to people at a higher level than the service desk responsible for fixing bugs within the system.

-- Information I seek --
I seek a "a copy of all "bug reports" or "IT Incidents" raised on the system responsible for data matching between the ATO and Centrelink in the last 3 months."

I also asked for:
"I would also like a copy of the Incident or Problem record for all instances in the last 3 months where any of Centrelink's "core" systems (Online Services, MyGov, or the Data Matching System) were fully or partially unavailable'."

I would like to revise this request to "all final reports created in relation to the unavailability of Centrelink's "core" systems (Online Services, MyGov, or the Data Matching System) in the last 3 months".

Yours sincerely,

Ben Fairless
