Insights for the Alexander Maconochie Centre

The request was partially successful.

Dear ACT Corrective Services,

I am writing to formally submit a request under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 to obtain specific information pertaining to various facets of the Alexander Maconochie Centre administration. I seek access to the following data and documents:

1. A comprehensive breakdown of funding allocations designated for renovations within the visiting area of the Alexander Maconochie Centre (AMC).

2. The annual budget allotment specifically dedicated to the support and services provided to prisoners at the Alexander Maconochie Centre (AMC).

3. The yearly budget for the overall prison system at Alexander Maconochie Centre (AMC).

4. Data and official guidelines concerning the implementation of support interventions for incarcerated individuals at Alexander Maconochie Centre (AMC).

5. Recent and current documentation, including financial disbursements and regulatory guidelines for programs addressing offense-specific matters and prisoner well-being.

6. Pertinent details concerning correctional officers, including tier structures, qualifications, and whether they undergo mandatory training in mental health first aid, as well as whether psychological assessments are a prerequisite for their role.

7. The comprehensive Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) governing the operational protocols within the AMC.

8. Detailed insights into funding arrangements and guiding principles for prisoners eligible for participation in the Transitional Release program.

9. Guidance documents outlining the procedures for prisoners with less than six months remaining on their sentence but who do not meet the eligibility criteria for the Transitional Release program.

I acknowledge that the Freedom of Information Act provides access to a wide range of government records. I am prepared to cover any reasonable fees associated with processing this request.
If any further details or clarification are necessary to fulfill this request, kindly reach out to me. I anticipate your timely response as required by the relevant legislation.

Yours faithfully,

ACT Corrective Services

How to Fix It
An email admin at has created a custom mail
flow rule that blocks messages that meet certain conditions, and it
appears that your message has met one or more of those conditions.
* Check the text above for a custom message from the email admin that
may help explain why your message was blocked and how you might be
able to fix it. For example, removing prohibited words from the
message or sending the message from a different email account may be
sufficient to deliver your message.
If you've tried and you're still not able to fix the problem, consider
contacting the email admin at to discuss
what to do. While they're unlikely to remove or relax the rule, if you
have a legitimate need to deliver your message they may offer guidance for
how to do so.
More Info for Email Admins
Status code: 550 5.7.1_ETR

This error occurs because an email admin at
has created a custom mail flow rule that has blocked the sender's message.

In some cases, the sender can change the message so it no longer violates
the rule. However, depending on the rule's conditions, it's possible that
the only way to deliver the message is to change the rule itself, and only
an email admin at can do that. Although it's
possible the rule is unintentionally flawed or it's stricter than the
admin intended, it may be working exactly as they want it to.
