Contents of November 2022 ComBrief Senate Estimates

We're waiting for Julie to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Office of the Australian Information Commissioner,

The OAIC has appeared (via videolink or in person) before the Legal and Constitutional Affairs Legislative Committee (Senate Estimates) on 7 November 2022 (Angelene Falk, Leo Hardiman, Elizabeth Hampton).

As part of the appearance of the above named OAIC officials, to enable these above named OAIC officials to address any issues or questions Committee members might raise, the OAIC prepares a 'Commissioner briefing book' or 'briefing folder' for each official appearing, that typically consists of a 'corporate folder', a 'privacy folder', an 'FOI folder', and other folders that contain 'Commissioner Briefs', 'Hot Topic Briefs', and other documents.

Excluding drafts and duplicates, I seek copy of the contents of the ComBrief book/s, excluding the index, limited to the amount of the ComBrief documents that the OAIC can produce before a valid practical refusal could be made. In determining the order of documents in scope, the OAIC should process in order of most likely to be be released in full to most likely to be refused in full.

Personal information of private individuals (not Commonwealth officials) is irrelevant.

Ciao

Julie
