FOI Delegations

Ben Fairless made this Freedom of Information request to Australian Public Service Commission

The request was successful.

From: Ben Fairless

Dear Australian Public Service 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

Good morning Mr Fairless

 

Thank you for your email below.

 

We are happy to manage your request administratively.

 

The Commission has previously released a copy of its FOI Instrument of
Delegations in accordance with section 23 of the FOI Act.  A copy of the
Instrument which is still current is available on Right to Know at
[1]https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/f...

 

While the new Commissioner has commenced in the role in August 2018, the
current Instrument and Delegation does not cease, but remains valid.

 

If you require further information relating to this email, please do not
hesitate to contact our office.

 

Kind regards
