Dear Department of the Treasury,

I seek the following under FOI;

A document that contains the total number of non-APS staff, filling equivalent roles to actual APS staff in your department.

Typically these employees are ostensibly employed through labour hire agencies, and fulfil functionally equivalent roles to their colleagues.

If no such document exists please advise.

Yours faithfully,

John Smith

Dear Mr Smith,

We write to acknowledge receipt of your request, under the Freedom of
Information Act 1982 (FOI Act), seeking the following documents:

 

A document that contains the total number of non-APS staff, filling
equivalent roles to actual APS staff in your department.

 

Typically these employees are ostensibly employed through labour hire
agencies, and fulfil functionally equivalent roles to their colleagues.

 

If no such document exists please advise.

 

Your request was received by the Treasury on 3 July 2020. The FOI Act
provides that we have 30 days to process the request.

We will take all reasonable efforts to process your request. However, due
to the threat of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the department is experiencing a
diversion of resources that are critical to managing Australia’s response.
This means we may not be able to process your request within the expected
timeframe, and seek an extension of time from you to manage the request.
We apologise for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience during
this time.

Would you please advise if you agree to a 30 day extension of time to
process your request? A response by 20 July 2020 would be appreciated.

This period may be extended if we need to consult third parties or for
other reasons. We will advise you if this happens.

We will advise you if a charge is payable to process your request and the
amount of any such charge as soon as possible.

We make the following assumptions that affect the scope of the request.
These are set out below.

It is our usual practice:

•           not to disclose the personal information of government
employees or the personal contact details of senior government employees
(including those of the Treasury). The names of senior officers will
generally be released.

•           not to release duplicates of any document captured within the
scope of the request.

•           only the final version of a document will be considered within
scope.

 

Please inform us if you do not agree to the request being processed on the
above assumptions. If we do not hear from you, your request will be
processed on the basis that these documents are outside the scope of your
request.

We will contact you using the email address you provided. Please advise if
you would prefer us to use an alternative means of contact.

If you have any questions in relation to your application, please contact
the FOI Team on 02 6263 2800.

Kind regards,

Freedom of Information Officer
