Private use of social media advice provided to employees

James Smith made this Freedom of Information request to SA Department for Communities and Social Inclusion

The request was refused by SA Department for Communities and Social Inclusion.

From: James Smith

Delivered

Dear SA Department for Communities and Social Inclusion,

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act.

I request documents related to the ten most recent instances where an employee has sought information, advice, guidance, or opinion on their social media use in a private capacity.

I limit the scope of documents to:
- the original request from the employee
- the agency/department's response
- any follow-up questions and response
- only those sent to a relevant HR / conduct / social media (or similar) team (rather than managers across all areas of the organisation)
- where the original request was created in the last 2 years

Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours faithfully,

James Smith

Good afternoon Mr Smith

 

I refer to your email received by the Department of Communities and Social
Inclusion on the 8^th August 2017 making an application under the Freedom
of Information Act 1991 (the Act).

 

You have sought access to the following documents:

 

I request documents related to the ten most recent instances where an
employee has sought information, advice, guidance, or opinion on their
social media use in a private capacity.

 

I limit the scope of documents to:

- the original request from the employee

- the agency/department's response

- any follow-up questions and response

- only those sent to a relevant HR / conduct / social media (or similar)
team (rather than managers across all areas of the organisation)

- where the original request was created in the last 2 years

 

Please note that I cannot consider this to be a valid application until
you have paid the relevant application fee (currently $34.25), as required
under section 13(c) of the Act. This fee may be waived if you are able to
provide proof of a valid concession card, or can demonstrate that the
payment of such a fee would cause you financial hardship.

 

Payment should be made by cheque or money order, made out to ‘Department
of Communities and Social Inclusion’, and forwarded to following address:

 

The Senior FOI Officer

Department of Communities and Social Inclusion

GPO Box 292

Please note that additional charges may apply for the processing of this
application; please find attached a copy of the current Freedom of
Information (Fees and Charges) Regulations 2003.

 

Please don’t hesitate to contact me should you require any assistance.

 

Kind regards

Locutus Sum left an annotation ()

Mostly I classify a response like this one to say "clarification requested" because the agency has told the applicant that some more information (and money!) is needed before the request will be processed. This time, I have put the response in the category of "refused" because it is two months when the agency has responded and the applicant has not made a follow-up. This does not mean that the agency will refuse the request when an application is made in the correct (required) way and although I have made the classification of "refused", the applicant can use this same request page if he wishes to pursue the request.
