Delivered

Dear Department of Health,

I am seeking documents in relation development and ongoing maintenance of the National Public Toilet Map (located at https://toiletmap.gov.au/ ), such as contracts/MoUs/implementation strategies of a technical nature.

To help guide and confine your search, I am looking for:
* MoUs/contracts between the Department of Health and Department of Social Services (who are the data.gov.au custodians of the toilet map dataset https://data.gov.au/dataset/553b3049-2b8... )
* MoUs/contracts between the Department of Health and other Departments/Agencies or Private entities that relating to the toilet map
* Further details of the Austender contract DoHA/194/1112 (https://www.tenders.gov.au/?event=public... )
* Design or implementation strategies for toiletmap.gov.au (you may get this from the Department's Enterprise Architecture section)
* Any documents relating to the future of toiletmap.gov.au beyond 2018 (not including Instant Messages, but may include official documents shared between website development teams or external vendors)

Documents pre-2012 may be safely ignored if the content is covered/updated in more recent documents (e.g. documents for the website design/implementation in 2006 is different to the documents for the current or post-2012 design/implementation, of which I am looking for the latter)

This is a formal Freedom of Information Request under the Act.

Naturally the Information Technology Division should be able to assist in this request, but please reach out if you require more information from me.

Yours faithfully,

Simon Victory

Dear FOI/Mr Morgan,

Thank you for your response.

I will engage the specified contact person and will reply back to you soon about a revised scope.

To give context (and put it on the public record as this correspondence will be published on righttoknow.org.au) some of those documents are important to me as I am of the personal opinion that the final product could be better and that using modern open-source/free tools would result in a better "bang-for-buck". Those documents will hopefully demonstrate why particular technical decisions were made and for how much they were costed for, given the context/environment at the time those decisions were made.

I envisage that in my future request I will require the contract information between Health and DSS (given that I have a working relationship with the latter) as specified in AustTnder contract DoHA/194/1112; as well as at least one technical documentation (whether that be High Level Design or otherwise).

Yours sincerely,
Simon Victory

Dear Mr Victory

 

By notice in writing dated 22 February 2018, Mr Nick Morgan, Assistant
Secretary of the Home Support and Hearing Branch, advised you that he was
satisfied that the work involved in processing your request would
substantially and unreasonably divert the resources of the agency from its
other operations (s 24AA(1)(a)(i) of the Freedom of Information Act 1982
[FOI Act]).

 

Mr Morgan advised you of his intention to refuse access to the documents
you requested.

 

On 26 February 2018, you sent an email to the FOI inbox indicating that
you would ‘engage the specified contact person and will reply back to you
soon about a revised scope.‘ Since then, you have not sent any further
communications.

 

You have neither consulted the contact person named in the notice nor done
any of the three things set out in s24AB(6) of the FOI Act listed in the
notice by the deadline of 5 p.m. on 8 March 2018. The notice advised you
that you were required to do so. Consequently, pursuant to s24AB(7) of the
FOI Act, your freedom of information request is deemed to have been
withdrawn.

 

Regards

 

François Murat
