James Smith made this Freedom of Information request to Commonwealth Grants Commission

The request was partially successful.

From: James Smith

Dear Commonwealth Grants Commission,

This is a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act.

I request the document(s) which describe the data provided to the external organisation(s) responsible for conducting the ballot(s) for all Enterprise Agreements put to staff for a vote.

The scope of this request is limited only to those ballots undertaken for enterprise agreements which were proposed to take effect after 30 June 2014.

The document shall describe the data given to the ballot agent. For example, employee name, employee identification number, employee email address, etc. I exclude the data for specific employees here; I am only after the 'meta-data'.

If it assists you to treat this as an administrative request for information I encourage you to do so. Otherwise, please consider this a formal FOI request.

Yours faithfully,

James Smith

James

The Commonwealth Grants Commission (CGC) conducted its own ballot for the Enterprise agreement vote. That is, CGC did not use an external organisation for the Enterprise Agreement ballot and no data of any kind was provided to any ballot agent.

I would appreciate your confirmation that you wish us not to consider this as an FOI request.

Regards

Phil Parkins

Dear Mr Smith

Attached is an email which set out the voting process to staff. Please note that this process was conducted for a very small staff (approx. 25) located in one office.
