Dear Attorney-General's Department,

I seek the following under FOI;

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

You may omit duplicate position titles. But where a position title is duplicated, please indicate the number of contractors employed within the department that have that position title.

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

The purpose of this FOI request is to determine what kinds of roles the Attorney General's department has outsourced by means of labour hire.

If no such document exists please advise.

Dear Attorney-General's Department,

If this request would be refused because providing the number of people employed under each position title would be impractical; please instead provide a bare list of position titles that are currently filled by contractors.

Yours faithfully,

duplicate position titles. But where a position title is duplicated,
please indicate the number of contractors employed within the department
that have that position title.

 

If this request would be refused because providing the number of people
employed under each position title would be impractical; please instead
provide a bare list of position titles that are currently filled by
contractors.

 

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 29 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 28 August

this happens.

 

Where the documents within the scope of an FOI request include the
