FOI Delegations

Ben Fairless made this Freedom of Information request to Australian Electoral Commission

The request was partially successful.

From: Ben Fairless

Delivered

Dear Australian Electoral Commission,

Under section 23 of the Freedom of Information Act, the principal officer or minister can make arrangements to give their decision making powers to others.

I'm hoping you can provide me with a copy of the current arrangements if possible.

If it helps, I'm happy for you to process this request under "administrative release" (https://www.oaic.gov.au/freedom-of-infor.... This would reduce the cost and time required to make a formal decision.

That said, I understand sometimes you want the request to be formal. If you won't process it informally, please process my request for the document as a formal FOI Request.

Please note - While I volunteer for Right to Know, this request is made in a personal capacity and not on behalf of Right to Know.

Yours faithfully,

Ben Fairless

Dear Mr Fairless

I refer to your email dated 14 November 2018 11:51 PM in which you request
access to the instrument of authorisation issued by the Electoral
Commissioner under section 23 of the Freedom of Information Act 1982.

Your request has been referred to me. I have decided to give you
administrative access to a redacted cophy of the instrument (attached).
The only redaction is the facsimile of the Electoral Commissioner’s
signature. The redaction was made in accordance with AEC policy to
withhold access to facsimiles of signatures for privacy reasons.

Regards

                Owen Jones
