FOI Delegations - 2016
Ben Fairless made this Freedom of Information request to Australian Institute of Marine Science as part of a batch sent to 125 authorities
This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.
Dear Australian Institute of Marine Science,
Can I please have a copy of the current FOI Delegations, and any related directions issued in respect of FOI.
I believe this information could be considered "operational information" so I therefore request release under the IPS, or under Administrative Access.
“Dear Mr Fairless,
Thank you for your email. A copy of the AIMS ACT 1972 is available at
sections of reference below:
PART VII – MISCELLANEOUS
50A Delegation of powers by Finance Minister
50B Delegation by the Institute
50C Delegation by the Council
50D Delegation and sub delegation by the Chief Executive Officer
Thank you and kind regards,
Thank you for your email. I understand that the Law allows the Institute to delegate powers, however what I am seeking is a written copy of those Authoriations/Delegations made under section 23 of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth).
Dear Mr Fearless,
Thank you for your email clarifying your original request.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Institute of Marine Science
is the principal officer referred to in section 23(1) of the Freedom of
Information Act. Following receipt of appropriate advice and information
from relevant officers, all decisions in respect of valid requests under
the Freedom of Information Act 1982 are currently made by the Chief
Executive Officer of AIMS.
Please note that AIMS’ Townsville Facility will close from 12pm tomorrow
afternoon and re-open Tuesday 3^rd January 2017. On behalf of the
institute, we wish you a safe and merry Christmas and a prosperous 2017.
