Dear FOI,

Thank you for your work.

I seek internal review of this decision.

I seek to know the individual's payment amounts and position titles for these contracts.

You have stated:

"These documents contain the individuals’ payment amounts and position titles at a specific point in time. I have considered the availability of this information and find that this information is already available from publicly accessible sources."

That information is not publicly accessible. Please disclose the payment amounts, and position titles for these contracts; or point out where the information for these contracts can be obtained from publicly accessible sources. Hint: that information is not available on AusTender.

Yours sincerely,

John Smith

Dear FOI,

I also seek internal review of the redaction of the terms of agreement document.

I seek to know the names of the Launch signing officer, and the name and/or position title of the AAT representative to sign this document.

Yours sincerely,

John Smith

Dear FOI,

Your statement of what I sought in my internal review is incorrect.

I sought:
- "I seek to know the individual's payment amounts and position titles for these contracts. "

AND

- "‘I seek to know the names of the Launch signing officer, and the name / or position title of the AAT representative to sign this document"

As you haven't addressed the first point I sought to resolve through internal review, I will proceed with an OAIC review.

Yours sincerely,

John Smith
