Delivered

Dear Department of Human Services,

If possible, please treat this as an informal or administrative request. Otherwise, please treat this as a formal request for documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982.

I request copies of the following documents:

- Final versions of documents produced as part of the contract with Data61, described as Contract 1 in Question on Notice BI-25 here: http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Busi... i.e. "A retrospective analysis of the design and implementation of the OCS that was in use at the time by DHS, and suggested possible improvements to the system. This work was undertaken between 30 January 2017 and 2 February 2017 with a contract value of $46,200 (incl. GST)."

I request copies of the documents in their original, electronic form, where possible.

Yours faithfully,

Justin Warren

Dear Jack,

Thank you for your letter of 28 August 2017.

I am requesting documents that a reasonable person would consider to be outputs of fulfilling the contracts. These are not project management documents, or ephemera created in the process of fulfilling the contract (such as correspondence, meeting agendas and minutes, etc.), or earlier versions of documents.

Documents specified in the contracts as Deliverables would fall within the scope, but the actual contract document itself would not.

Other documents that a reasonable person would consider as analogous to a Deliverable, even though not explicitly specified as such, would also fall within the scope.

For Contract 1, this would be reports or similar documents that provide the findings of Data61 in its "retrospective analysis of the design and implementation of the OCS that was in use at the time by DHS, and suggested possible improvements to the system."

For Contract 2, this would be reports or similar documents that provide the technical "advice provided by Data61 [in] addressing how to construct and validate data-driven models and make decisions under uncertainty".

For Contract 3, this would also be reports or similar documents that provide the technical "advice provided by Data61 [in] addressing how to construct and validate data-driven models and make decisions under uncertainty".

I am happy to have a conversation with you to discuss the scope and clear up any further issues, as I have with other FOI Units. I can be contacted via [email address] directly if you can provide me with a number to call, or I can provide my direct phone number for you to call.

Yours sincerely,

Justin Warren
