To whom it may concern,

Can the department release emails written by staff members of '[Name Removed at the request of the Department]' during delivery of incubator support programs?

I am interested in emails written between two meetings found here ( First meeting is on 31/10/19 and second meeting is on 11/12/19.

This document ( posted earlier by Mr Jakota on the Right To Know Website is apparently published somewhere by a department agency. The document says that it is OK for 'incubators' to hire staff to deliver grants for other 'incubators'? Excuse me for saying but this is bizarre.

Is [Name Removed at the request of the Department] an actual accelerator and do accelerators apply for the incubator grants?

We feel that it's appropriate for the contents of the request to remain, however have agreed with the Department to hide the names in question.
