Dear Department of Health,

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, Department of Health

Dear Mr Smith

I am writing to notify you on 30 July 2020 the Department of Health
(department) received your request for access to documents under the
Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) as follows:

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

 

Request for extension of time

 

The department is actively processing your request and is aiming to
finalise it as quickly as possible. However, the department is currently
experiencing an increased workload to manage and respond to the
coronavirus pandemic, with a large amount of resources being diverted to
do so. The content of your request means that any documents that exist
would sit with the line area who has responsibility for the department’s
continued response to the coronavirus.

 

On this basis, the department is seeking an extension of 30 calendar days,
with a decision to be provided to you no later than COB 28 September
2020.

 

Next Steps

 

Could you please advise the department by COB 6 August 2020 if you agree
to the request for extension of time?

 

In addition, unless you advise otherwise, duplicate documents and
Commonwealth employee names and contact details below Senior Executive
Service level and mobile telephone numbers of all staff will be excluded
from the scope of your request under s22(1)(a)(ii) of the FOI Act.

 

Kind regards

FOI Officer
