FOI, Disability Employment Services Reference Group

Good afternoon Melissa,

 

I refer to your correspondences received by the Department of Social
Services (the department) on 11 June 2021, in which you requested access
under the Commonwealth Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) to:

 

                Please provide a dollar figure for the last 5 financial
years general ledger for the department.

 

We are not asking for the details being the GL just the expenditure by
line item for the department for the 5 years.

 

And

 

Please provide a dollar figure for the last 5 financial years general
ledger for the department [Disability Employment Services Reference
Group].

 

We are not asking for the details being the GL just the expenditure by
line item for the department for the 5 years.

 

As the Disability Employment Services is a branch which falls within the
department, it is appropriate to combine the two requests into one, being
reference number FOI 2021-115.

 

The department’s policy is to exclude the names and contact details of
non-Senior Executive Service (SES) staff, as well as the signatures and
mobile numbers of those SES staff. Additionally, draft and duplicate
documents are excluded and only final versions considered in the scope of
your request. This information is considered irrelevant to your request
and removed under section 22 of the FOI Act, unless you advise otherwise.
Please respond by 28 June 2021 confirming your agreement to this proposal
or alternatively, if you would like to receive this information, please
respond advising same for the decision maker’s consideration.

 

The statutory period for processing your request is 30 days commencing
from the day after your request was received. If the due date falls on a
Saturday, Sunday, or public holiday, in accordance with the FOI guidelines
issued by the Australian Information Commissioner, the timeframe will
expire on the first day following which is none of those days.

 

You will be notified as soon as possible if a charge is associated with
processing your request.

 

The department will correspond with you by email in relation to your FOI
request.  Should you have any queries about this matter, please do not
hesitate to contact the FOI team via email at [1][Disability Employment Services Reference Group request email]

 

With regards
