Delivered

Dear Australian Building and Construction Commission,

Under the FOI Act, I seek access to email correspondence between the Commissioner of the ABCC, Mr Stephen McBurney, and the Australian Public Service Commissioner, Mr John Lloyd (in his capacity as Public Service Commissioner or otherwise), between the period of 6 February 2018 to the date of this application.

For the avoidance of any doubt, my request refers to email documents (and any related attachments) sent by Mr McBurney to Mr Lloyd, as well as email documents (and any related attachments) sent by Mr Lloyd to Mr McBurney (including where Mr McBurney has been cc'd).

Documents falling within the scope of my request can be quickly identified and retrieved by searching all items (including archived items) in Mr McBurney's email account profile according to persons sent to, and received from.

I am willing to agree to the ABCC redacting, from any relevant document, the personal information of any person mentioned in that document, except where that person was, at the relevant time: i) a public servant; or ii) a member of parliament.

Noting paragraphs 6.153-6.154 of the FOI guidelines, this refinement of my request should negate any need for the ABCC to consult with any third parties under s.27A of the FOI Act.

Thanks.
DB

In that email the ABCC also informed you that, pursuant to section 15(5) of the FOI Act, the ABCC has 30 days to deal with an FOI request. However, the FOI Act provides an agency a further period of 30 days in order to consult with relevant parties.
