EPC meeting orders of proceedings

Warrick Alexander made this Freedom of Information request to Department of Industry, Innovation and Science

The request was successful.

From: Warrick Alexander

Delivered

Dear Department of Industry, Innovation and Science,

I am inquiring about documents relating to an FOI disclosure by your department (Disclosure Log Number: 20/029).

I am only referring to pages titled "order of proceedings and proposed timings". These are 3 pages like this, 1 page for every meeting in the disclosure.

Can you please release this page for every EPC meeting in the last 3 years?

There should only be 1 page for every meeting, hopefully requiring less than 5 hours of effort.

Thank you,

Warrick Alexander

Dear Mr Alexander

We refer to your correspondence (below) to the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (the department) regarding access to certain documents.

Section 15 of the FOI Act requires that a request for access meets certain requirements. Your FOI request in its current form does not constitute a valid request as it cannot be in the form of a question. To request documents under the FOI Act you must:

• submit a request in writing stating that you’re requesting documents under the FOI Act
• provide enough detail so we can identify the correct documents
• a request cannot be submitted in the form of a question

Please refer to our website for further information: https://www.industry.gov.au/about-us/wha....

Furthermore, you cannot request documents that are already publicly available.

Accordingly, no further action will be taken in relation to your request.

For your information, you may wish to consider submitting the following scope:

"Under the Freedom of Information Act 1982, I request access to the page titled 'order of proceedings and proposed timings' in the EPC meeting minutes for every meeting from 26 August 2017 to 26 August 2020 excluding the following dates which are already publicly available at https://www.industry.gov.au/sites/defaul... :
- Thursday 31 October 2019;
- Wednesday 11 December 2019; and
- Wednesday 21 February 2018."

Please note, this scope is a sample only. At this early stage, a search and retrieval has not been conducted and the department is unable to advise on whether it may be too voluminous to process or if any documents will be returned.

Should you have further queries, please contact the FOI team at [Department of Industry, Innovation and Science request email].

Kind regards
