From: Employment - FOI

Dear Ms Tomkinson

 

Thank you for your request dated 16 March 2015 to the Department of
Employment (the department) seeking information relating to Job Services
Australia (JSA) and Job Network (JN).

 

For your information, the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth) (FOI Act)
provides an individual with a right to obtain access to documents held by
an agency, rather than to information. You have not identified or
described any particular documents to which you seek access and therefore
in its current form the department is unable to process your request.

 

On this basis, I am writing to notify you of my intention to refuse your
request as your request does not provide sufficient information for me to
be able to identify relevant documents (a practical refusal reason under
paragraph 24AA(1)(b) of the FOI Act).

 

However, before making a decision to refuse your request, the FOI Act
provides an avenue by which I am able to assist you to revise the scope of
your request so that the practical refusal reason no longer exists. This
is known as a consultation period.

 

The consultation period gives you 14 days to contact me and make
submissions in support of your request as currently worded, or to make a
revised request so that the practical refusal reason no longer exists. You
may also decide to withdraw your request. If you do not contact the
department within this 14 day consultation period, your FOI request will
be taken to have been withdrawn (s 24AB(7) of the FOI Act).

publicly available material below:
