Non-APS Contractors

John Smith made this Freedom of Information request to Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet

The request was successful.

From: John Smith

Delivered

Dear Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet,

I seek the following under FOI;

A document that contains a list of all the position/job titles of every non-APS contractor working within your department.

e.g. a position title may be: 'security guard', or 'consultant', or 'APS3 FOI officer', etc.

You may omit repeating a position title when there exist multiple contractors who have that position title. Additionally, if it would not be too onerous, please indicate the number of contractors that hold each position title.

If no such document exists please produce a document containing the information under s17.

Yours faithfully,

John Smith

FOI/2020/175

 

Dear Mr Smith

 

Thank you for your email dated 30 July 2020, received by the Department of
the Prime Minister and Cabinet (the Department), in which you made a
request to the Department under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the
FOI Act) in the following terms:

 

I seek the following under FOI;

 

A document that contains a list of all the position/job titles of every
non-APS contractor working within your department.

 

e.g. a position title may be: 'security guard', or 'consultant', or 'APS3
FOI officer', etc.

 

You may omit repeating a position title when there exist multiple
contractors who have that position title. Additionally, if it would not be
too onerous, please indicate the number of contractors that hold each
position title.

 

If no such document exists please produce a document containing the
information under s17.

 

Timeframe for receiving your decision

 

We received your request on 30 July 2020 and the 30 day statutory period
for processing your request commenced from the day after that date. You
should therefore expect a decision from us by 31 August 2020. The period
of 30 days may be extended in certain circumstances. We will advise you if
there is any extension of time.

 

Charges

 

Agencies may decide that an applicant is liable to pay a charge in respect
of a request for access to documents. If the Department decides that you
are liable to pay a charge, we will send you a preliminary assessment of
the charge as soon as possible.

 

Publication of documents

 

Please note that information released under the FOI Act may later be
published online on our disclosure log at
[1]https://www.pmc.gov.au/government/depart...,
subject to certain exceptions. If you think you might wish to raise any
objections to the publication of any of the information which may be
released to you please contact us by email at [2][DPMC request email].  If you
do wish to object to the publication of information, you would need to
provide supporting reasons.

 

Exclusion of officers’ names and contact details

 

For documents that fall within scope of the request, it is the
Department’s policy to withhold:

·       any person’s signature;

·       the names and contact details of Australian Public Service
officers not in the Senior Executive Service (SES);

·       the mobile or direct numbers of SES officers;

·       the names and contact details of Ministerial staff at a level
below Chief of Staff.

 

The names and other details of SES officers will not be withheld unless
there is some reason for that information to be exempt from release. If
you require signatures, the names and contact details of non-SES officers
or Ministerial staff below the level of Chief of Staff, or the mobile or
direct numbers of SES officers please let us know at [3][DPMC request email] so
the decision-maker may consider; otherwise we will take it that you agree
to that information being excluded from the scope of your request (that
is, the information will be treated as irrelevant and redacted from any
documents for release).

 

We will write again when the Department has more information.  Further
information on FOI processing can be found at the website of the Office of
the Australian Information Commissioner
