The request was successful.

From: Ben Fairless

Delivered

Dear Office of the Australian Information Commissioner,

I would like a copy of the most recent list that the OAIC holds of all entities which are subject to the Federal Freedom of Information Act.

This includes the name of the agency and the contact email address for the agency.

Please treat this as a request for administrative access. If for some reason the request cannot be dealt with in this way, please treat it as a formal application under the Freedom of Information Act.

Yours faithfully,

Ben Fairless

Ben this is useful request since not all Federal Government Agencies are what they first seem.

Most agencies are subject to the APS Code of Conduct and the Public Service Act 1999, while other agencies such as APRA are not.

A few agencies are subject to "integrity review" however most have no independent "integrity agency" who role it is to investigate corruption with Commonwealth Departments and Agencies.

Why should different rules apply to different Australian Public Servants?
