Dear Department of Industry, Innovation and Science,

I'm requesting under the FOI Act the number of emails sent to Zoe Naden on 16 January 2020 and Emma Greenwood on 7 July 2020 by each public officer listed underneath from the Legal, Audit & Assurance.

1 Gerard A.
2 Nicola A.
3 Pete B.
4 Alex B.
5 Rebecca B.
6 Bernard B.
7 Kristy-Lee C.
8 Chiara C.
9 Pip F.
10 Matthew F.
11 Monika H.
12 Erin H.
13 Alan H.
14 Genevieve I.
15 Larry I.
16 Vikki K.
17 Alexander M.
18 Teddy M.
19 Christie M.
20 Sarah O.
21 Allison Q.
22 Steph R.
23 Richard R.
24 Jigyasa S.
25 Emma S.
26 Maris S.
27 Giang T.
28 Alex T.
29 Meg W.

The document should be a spreadsheet with the number for each public officer above to avoid personal details and the number of emails sent to each recipient on the specified dates.

For example a spreadsheet similar to these columns and rows underneath.

Public officer no., No. of email sent to Zoe Naden on 16 January 2020, No. of emails sent to Emma Greenwood on 7 July 2020
1, 0, 0
2, 1, 0
3, 0, 0
4, 0 1
...
And so on until public officer 29.

I consent to the removal of names in the public officer list above by Right to Know after this request is sent.

Thanks,
Alby P.

Dear Alby

 

We refer to your correspondence (attached) to the Department of Industry,
Science, Energy and Resources (the department) regarding access to
documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the FOI Act).

 

Your request in its current form does not constitute a valid request. The

In regards to your request for a spreadsheet, the department cannot create
a document if the database does not exist. You must request documents that
exist within the department (s15(1) of the FOI Act) or request data that
exists within the department that can then be extracted from an existing
database (refer s17(1) of the FOI Act).

 

Please refer to our website for further information:
