Dear Australian Taxation Office,
I would like to request a copy of all reports / documents delivered by consulting firm McKinsey & Company to the ATO since 1990. In addition, I would like to request a copy of each invoice paid to McKinsey for each report (including $ fees paid, rate card applied, and other commercial terms).
Given the recent, significant public interest in McKinsey due to their controversial activities in anti democratic or corrupt governments such as South Africa, Saudi Arabia and Malaysia (1MDB), I request that the FOIA request fees be waived.
Dear Mr Johnson,
We have received your new request dated 25 February 2020 requesting copies
of documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act). We will
consider your request and respond as soon as possible.
FOI requests are required to be processed within 30 days from the date we
receive an application. While we aim to achieve this timeframe, certain
requests that are large or involve complex issues may take longer. If this
is the case, we will contact you to discuss when the material can be made
available. Further, unless your request is for personal information,
charges may apply depending on the size and complexity of your case. We
will notify you if there are charges and what those charges will be. We
will obtain your consent to any additional charges before processing the
Australian Taxation Office
