Delivered

Dear Australian Public Service Commission,

I understand Australian taxpayers footed the bill for a farewell party for John Lloyd held on 19 July 2018.

Under the FOI Act, I seek copies of documents which set out the costs of venue and equipment hire as well as catering costs (food and all drinks) for that event.

cheers

The Australian Public Service Commission (the Commission) acknowledges
receipt of your request dated 3 August 2018, under the Freedom of
Information Act 1982 (Cth) (FOI Act), seeking access to the following
documents:

           

‘I understand Australian taxpayers footed the bill for a farewell party
for John Lloyd held on 19 July 2018. Under the FOI Act, I seek copies of
documents which set out the costs of venue and equipment hire as well as
catering costs (food and all drinks) for that event.’

           

The statutory timeframe for responding to your request under the FOI Act
is 30 days from the date of receipt. This timeframe may be extended in
certain circumstances, and we will advise you if such circumstances arise.
An extension to the timeframe may occur if there is a need to conduct
formal consultation with affected third parties. Such consultation may
extend the processing time by an additional 30 days, in accordance with
sections 27 and 27A [Consultation – business documents and personal
privacy] of the FOI Act.

 

Section 29 of the FOI Act provides that agencies may apply a processing
charge for access to documents which do not concern your personal
information. I will write to you and inform you if it is decided that a
processing charge will apply.

 

Section 22 of the FOI Act, provides that agencies may redact certain
material from documents, if it is deemed that material is irrelevant to
the scope of a request.  The Commission’s policy is to redact the personal
contact details of Commission or APSC officers, who are employed below
Senior Executive Officers (SES) level, such as mobile telephone numbers
and signatures.

If the applicant was right and the taxpayer funded the farewell party then maybe it was not the Australian Public Service Commission who has paid. Maybe it is another agency but this agency does not make any suggestion about this.
