a. When was the process incepted?
b. What problems/issues have the process given rise to if any?
c. What reduction is road-surfacing has been achieved?

Dear Information,

I wish to keep the request in one place for ease of consideration and the benefit of others.

Your link appears intended to obtain personal information - I am not seeking this. the form also requests a great deal of personal information, which appears inappropriate for a freedom of information request.

As you appear to be refusing my application please consider this a request for an internal review.

Yours sincerely,

Philip Swift

Dear Mr Swift

Thank you for your email below.

Your original application was requested informally and not as a formal Access Application.

In order to request the Internal Review you must request the documentation formally.

Please note the following when applying for the information to ensure it is valid:-

41 How to make an access application

(1) An application or other request for government information is not a valid access application unless it complies with the following requirements (the formal requirements) for access applications:

(a) it must be in writing sent by post to or lodged at an office of the agency concerned or made in the manner approved by the agency under subsection (2),
(b) it must clearly indicate that it is an access application made under this Act,
(c) it must be accompanied by a fee of $30,
(d) it must state the name of the applicant and a postal or email address as the address for correspondence in connection with the application,
(e) it must include such information as is reasonably necessary to enable the government information applied for to be identified.
Note. See section 51A concerning the effect of a waiver, reduction or refund of the fee for an access application. See also section 52 (3) concerning assistance to be afforded by an agency to an access applicant.

(1A) If the applicant has applied at any time to another agency for substantially the same information, an application must also include the name of the other agency. However, failure to comply with this subsection does not affect the validity of an application.

(2) An agency may approve additional facilities for the making of an access application or the payment of an application fee.

(3) An access application is not considered to have been received by an agency until it is actually received by the agency.

At present, your informal request asks questions. The Act is not designed to answer questions but rather provide documentation.

We require further information to assist with your request. We need to know specific documents of what you are seeking.

Please submit a formal request for information under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 1999.

To make this application valid a $30 application fee will be required.

You can email your application to us but we do not accept the form which is currently on this site. A payment will still need to be made by cheque or money order made to Transport for NSW.

Your application will not be valid until we have received your payment.

Internal Review

Please note a $40 fee is required for an internal review if you still wish to proceed with this process

A payment can also be made using our online form which I have attached the link for you:-

Dear State Transit Authority of NSW,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of State Transit Authority of NSW's handling of my FOI request 'Incident Response Vehicle, Process & Costs'.

The request has been refused without reference to the relevant legislation or need for a payment - not required by tother Australian agencies who have been presented the very same request.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/i...

Yours faithfully,

Philip Swift
