Dear Mr Holmes

 

Thank you for your email requesting access to ABC documents under the
Freedom of Information Act 1982.

 

The FOI Act provides people with the opportunity to ask for access to
documents rather than information. So that we can either find the
documents you seek, or find out if a document can be created by running a
report from existing systems, I would be grateful if you could clarify
your request so that we might be able to effectively and efficiently
process your application.

 

Firstly, please define what you mean by ‘publication’. For example, the
ABC has a commercial arm that sells ABC news content as well as factual
and entertainment programming. ABC Commercial also publishes books and
magazines.

 

Broad information about ABC Commercial’s activities over the last
financial year 2018–19 can be found on pages 48-50 of the ABC Annual
Report 2019 available here:

[1]https://about.abc.net.au/reports-publica...

 

Please also specify if you are looking for a total revenue amount or a
particular breakdown of amounts. This way if documents aren’t already
available in discrete form we will have details that may assist in
creating a document for assessment against the FOI Act.

 

Once you have clarified the scope of your request, the 30-day processing
period will commence.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards
Juliana
