The request was refused by Victorian Department of Treasury and Finance.

From: Jessica

Delivered

Dear Victorian Department of Treasury and Finance,

I am requesting a copy of the external fund managers utilised by the Victorian Fund Managers Corporation, which is managed by this Department. This information used to be published in the annual reports until 2007. Some of the managers were mentioned in a recent travel report by Minister Tim Pallas on 2017 trip to the USA, UK and China, for example PIMCO. Given that some of the information appears readily accessible and that this information used to be published, my request for a complete list is a reasonable and simple one. As I have already emailed and called VFMC a while ago, I would appreciate a timely response.

Yours faithfully,
Jessica Clarence

Dear Jessica,

Thank your email requesting information relating to the Victorian Funds
Management Corporation (VFMC).

Please be aware that there are specific requirements for requests under the
Freedom of Information Act (Vic)1982 ('FOI Act') to be deemed valid. This
includes the payment of an application fee which can be waived in certain
circumstances. As your request has not met this requirement we are unable
to process it further. Additional information on how to make a valid
request to the department can be found at
https://www.dtf.vic.gov.au/governance-an...
or http://www.foi.vic.gov.au. Once we have received a valid request we
will be able to begin processing it for you.

I should also note that the VFMC is a statutory corporation established
under the Victorian Funds Management Corporation Act (Vic)1994 and has
its own board of directors that is responsible for the management of its
affairs. In light of this, VFMC is not managed by the Department of
Treasury and Finance.

I note that you have previously contacted the VFMC in relation to your
query but I suggest that VMFC remain best able to assist you with your
information request.

Please feel free to contact me on the number below if you would like to
discuss your application further.

Regards

Justin Frank | Authorised Senior Freedom of Information Officer
