Providing full name and office location

Anatoly Kern made this Freedom of Information request to Department of Human Services

The request was refused by Department of Human Services.

From: Anatoly Kern

Delivered

Dear Department of Human Services,

It is my understanding that some representatives of DHS tend to avoid providing the full names on request.

Specifically by the representatives from "Multicultural and Tailored Services" led by Jan Bailey.

May I request the following information:

1) Any document that the department relying on for denying to provide full names.

2) A copy of the staff directory of "Multicultural and Tailored Servers", managed by NM Jan Bailey (title, position level, name, surname, office location)

Yours faithfully,

Anatoly Kern

Dear Department of Human Services,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Department of Human Services's handling of my FOI request 'Providing full name and office location'.

I disagree with the decision to refuse in full the release of the document identified: 'MTS staff data' (contains 9 pages)

I do not require full personal detail in a way that could affect any operations and excluding surnames would be sufficient for this case (providing the rest of the information, including specifically requested first name and employee id)

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/p...

Yours faithfully,

Anatoly Kern

I note that this denial is the subject of review ICR_10-24713563-367 by OAIC with no response except auto-response so far (which is quite revealing by itself).

Secrecy == crime.
