Delivered

Dear Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources,

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

Hi Ben

Thanks for your email.

I can confirm that as the FOI Manager for the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources, I am authorised to make decisions on behalf of the Secretary in respect of requests made to the Secretary under the FOI Act. In practice, I act as the department's decision maker.

Under the Caretaker Conventions which apply until the result of the Victorian State Election on 24 November 2018 is clear, requests made to Ministers are processed by those Minister's Offices.

Kind regards
Andrew
