John Smith made this Freedom of Information request to Australian Taxation Office

Currently waiting for a response from Australian Taxation Office, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

From: John Smith


Dear Australian Taxation Office,

I request:

1. all email correspondence between the ATO and the firm 'Predictivehire'.

2. any commercial contracts between the ATO and the firm 'Predictivehire'

3. any marketing documents sent to the ATO, by predictivehire, before predictivehire was signed on as a client of the ATO

4. Access computer code & algorithms used by predictivehire to create their online job application forms. I note that as an agent of the ATO (insofar as predictivehire is advising the ATO as to suitable job applicants), documents of predictivehire are subject to the FOI act; and that computer code is a 'document' under the FOI act.

Please narrow this request to exclude any documents (including emails) on the subject of a job application completed by a specific candidate.

If any of my four requests above cannot be accomodated, please limit this FOI request to those that can be accomodated.

Lastly, due to the public interest in the ATO's hiring processes, I request that the FOI fees be waived in this instance.

Yours faithfully,

John Smith
