Dear Victorian Department of Premier and Cabinet,
Under the FOI Act, I request position descriptions of all roles undertaken in your Fleet & Chauffeur Services (Operations) team.
I agree that such may be released under Administrative Access.
Thank you for your email to the Department of Premier and Cabinet
requesting information under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Vic).
I have included some information in this email about how you can submit a
valid Freedom of Information (FOI) request.
About FOI requests
A FOI request can be made to a Victorian government agency or Minister for
access to documents.
The FOI request needs to be made to an agency of the Victorian government
rather than to any office affiliated with the Victorian government. In the
present case, the request must be made to the Department of Premier and
Cabinet or to the Office of the Premier.
Making an FOI request
To make an FOI request, you need to:
- In writing, clearly define the documents you seek access to;
- Pay the small application fee of $30.10.
A FOI request can be made by email or through the online FOI request
portal. Payment of the application fee can be made via the online portal
If payment of the application fee will cause you financial hardship you
can request a fee waiver and provide documents to support your claim, such
as a Healthcare Card.
Be specific in your FOI request
Your FOI request must clearly state what documents you are seeking so that
the documents can be identified. If possible, specify the document types
you seek access to (for example, a report, file note, ministerial
Please be as specific as possible. Requests that are too broad may be
refused by an agency if processing the request will impose a substantial
or unreasonable burden on the agency’s resources.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you require any further assistance.
