John Smith made this Freedom of Information request to Department of Social Services

Waiting for an internal review by Department of Social Services of their handling of this request.

From: John Smith

Delivered

Dear Department of Social Services,

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
