This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Attorney-General's Department,

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

Dear Mr Smith

Please find attached the document containing the information you requested from the Attorney-General’s department on 16 February 2017. In accordance with your preference this document is being provided to you outside of the formal FOI process.

The document contains a ‘compilation of information’ which denotes that not all columns were provided in every spreadsheet sent to the ballot providers. For example, for the December 2016 ballot only some of the spreadsheets sent to the ballot provider included columns regarding leave dates.
