Dear Australian Public Service Commission,

I refer to the APSC’s correspondence here:

Under the FOI Act, I seek access to those 9 documents. In making this request, I note that the documents have already been identified, retrieved and consulted on (as per the APSC’s advice of 8/8/18 here: https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/h....

I’m happy for the APSC to redact the personal info of persons other than Lloyd and Hadgkiss.

the requirements of the section 15(2)(b) of the FOI Act, to enable
specific documents to be identified.  Therefore, could you please provide
further information to allow the Commission to identify which documents
