Hi Brenda,

 

I've done some preliminary research on your request and would like to see
if we can negotiate a narrowing of the scope of your request. As it stands
I think it could be quite large and also be difficult for us to define the
search. If you have a phone number you can provide me I would be happy to
discuss the application, but suggest you might agree to the scope of the
request be narrowed as follows:

 

Under the Freedom of Information Act, I write to request copies of any
emails, briefing notes, Requests for Quote or procurement probity advice
sent from or to the following staff members:

 

1) the Chief Executive Officer

2) the Chief Digital Officer

3) the Chief Operating Officer

4) the Chief Financial Officer

5) the Head of MyGov / Head of Government Digital Experience

 

in relation to the engagement of suppliers for delivery or consulting
services related to Services Australia.

 

This includes but is not limited to:

 

a) the creation of the 'Services Australia Vision' video - as available on
the DTA's YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NqxcNoT...

b) the delivery of a prototype demonstrating system integration approaches
for, and capabilities of, a digital experience platform

c) related strategies, audits, reviews and business cases

 

Documents are only requested for the time period between 20 May 2019 and
24 January 2020.

 

Part B refers to the procurement which had a Request for Quotation which
went out on the Digital Marketplace 13 December 2019.

 

Regards,

Morgan

Dear Brenda,

 

Freedom of Information Request – FOI 177/2020

Thank you for your email to the Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) for
access to documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act).

 

List of documents requested:

 

Under the Freedom of Information Act, I write to request copies of any
emails, briefing notes, Requests for Quote or procurement probity advice
sent from or to the following staff members:

 

1) the Chief Executive Officer

2) the Chief Digital Officer

3) the Chief Operating Officer

4) the Chief Financial Officer

5) the Head of MyGov / Head of Government Digital Experience

 

in relation to:

a) the creation of the 'Services Australia Vision' video - as available on
the DTA's YouTube channel: [1]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NqxcNoT...

b) the delivery of a prototype demonstrating system integration approaches
for, and capabilities of, a digital experience platform

c) related strategies, audits, reviews and business cases

 

Documents are only requested for the time period between 20 May 2019 and
24 January 2020.

 

The statutory period for processing your request commences from the day
after DTA received your request. Your request was received by DTA on 24
January 2020. The processing period may be extended if we need to consult
third parties, impose a charge or for other reasons. We will advise you if
this happens.

 

Liability to pay a charge

You will be notified of any charges in relation to your request as soon as
possible, before we process any requested documents or impose a final
charge.

 

Publication

As required by the FOI Act, information released under the FOI Act may
later be published online unless an exemption applies. For example,
personal information will not be published where this would be
unreasonable. Any documents provided to you under the FOI Act will be
published on our disclosure log ([2]www.dta.gov.au) as soon as practicable
after they are released to you, usually 1 – 2 working days.

 

Policy to exclude junior departmental officer contact details

The DTA will include the names and contact details of SES officers in any
document released under FOI. However, the DTA has adopted a policy to
generally exclude the names and contact details of junior staff (non-SES
officers) from any FOI documents. DTA’s preference is to reach agreement
with FOI applicants to exclude these details from the scope of the
request. Where there is no objection, the names and contact details of
junior officers are redacted under section 22 of the FOI Act, on the basis
that these details are irrelevant to the request.

 

Please contact the FOI Team on the below contact details if you wish to
discuss your request.
