Dear Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development,

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

I request all documents wherein the outcome of any enterprise bargaining ballots were communicated to the department by the entity who undertook the ballots.

This shall include the YES/NO vote amounts or percentages as well as any additional information related to the vote. For example, a breakdown of the vote by employee location, or APS level.

The scope of this request covers any such documents that were received as a result of EBA offers made to staff under:

Workplace Bargaining Policy 2015
Australian Government Public Sector Workplace Bargaining Policy 2014

I thank you in advance for processing this request.

Yours faithfully,

James Smith

Dear Mr Smith,

Regarding your below FOI request, the decision maker has decided that it would be appropriate to release the document to you administratively, outside of the FOI framework.

The document I have attached contains four reports that were sent to the Department by the contracted service provider, Orima. I can confirm that no further details of the votes were provided.

I believe that this document should address your request, and will consider your request withdrawn. Please let me know at your soonest convenience if this is not the case.
