Dear Attorney-General's Department,

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,

Dear Mr Smith

 

Freedom of Information Request FOI20/095  

 

I refer to your request under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI
Act) for access to:

 

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.

 

If you disagree with this interpretation of your request, please let me
know in writing as soon as possible.

 

The department received your request on 3 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 3 August
2020.                                                                                         

 

However, the period of 30 days may be extended if the department needs to
consult third parties or for other reasons. We will advise you if this
happens.

 

Where the documents within the scope of an FOI request include the
personal information of junior officers of the department or other
government authorities, the department’s practice is to not disclose
that information (e.g., names, contact details). The names of senior
officers will generally be disclosed. In addition, duplicates and
incomplete email chains within the scope of the FOI request will be
excluded.

 

Please note that, with some exceptions (such as personal information),
documents released under the FOI Act may later be published online on the
department’s disclosure log

If you have any questions, please contact me by telephone on (02) 6141
6666 or by email at [2][AGD request email].
