Dear Australian Hearing,
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.
Dear Mr Fairless,
Thank you for your e-mail request dated 14 November (copied below).
I can advise you that there is no arrangement in place either by the
Minister or by the Managing Director for delegating FoI decision making
within Australian Hearing.
