Scoping studies on HASS research infrastructure

We're waiting for Tim Sherratt to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Department of Education,

As part of the 2018 Research Infrastructure Investment Plan, funding was committed for a scoping study of potential research infrastructure for HASS and Indigenous research platforms (https://www.dese.gov.au/national-researc...).

Three reports were commissioned as part of this scoping study, and recommendations drawn from these reports were included in the 2020 Research Infrastructure Investment Plan (https://www.dese.gov.au/2020-research-in...).

I request that the three reports commissioned for the HASS and Indigenous research platforms scoping study be made publicly available, along with any recommendations and associated briefing notes derived from the scoping study.

Yours faithfully,

Tim Sherratt

Dear Tim

 

I refer to your request, received by the Department of Education, Skills
and Employment (department) on 8 November 2021, for access under the
Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) to the following:

 

As part of the 2018 Research Infrastructure Investment Plan, funding was
committed for a scoping study of potential research infrastructure for
HASS and Indigenous research platforms
([1]https://www.dese.gov.au/national-researc...).

 

Three reports were commissioned as part of this scoping study, and
recommendations drawn from these reports were included in the 2020
Research Infrastructure Investment Plan
([2]https://www.dese.gov.au/2020-research-in...).

 

I request that the three reports commissioned for the HASS and Indigenous
research platforms scoping study be made publicly available, along with
any recommendations and associated briefing notes derived from the scoping
study.

 

Your request was received by the department on 8 November 2021 and the 30
day statutory period for processing your request commenced from the day
after that date. The period of 30 days may be extended if we need to
consult third parties or for other reasons permitted under the FOI Act. We
will advise you if this happens.

 

Charges

 

The department will advise you if a charge is payable to process your
request and the amount of any such charge as soon as practicable. No
charge is payable for providing a person with their own personal
information.

 

Your address

 

The FOI Act requires that you provide us with an address that we can send
notices to. We understand that your electronic address is
[3][FOI #8080 email]. Unless you tell us
otherwise, we will send all notices and correspondence to this address.

 

Disclosure log

 

Information released under the FOI Act may be published on a disclosure
log on our website, subject to certain exceptions. These exceptions
include where publication of personal, business, professional or
commercial information would be unreasonable.

 

Exclusion of employee details

 

To the extent the department has documents in its possession that fall
within the scope of your request, we will treat the names, signatures,
position titles and direct contact details of Commonwealth employees as
irrelevant in accordance with section 22 of the FOI Act, unless you tell
us otherwise by 15 November 2021.

Dear DESE - FOI,

Thanks for your email seeking clarification of my FOI request.

To keep things simple at this point I agree to limiting my request, as you suggest, to only 'the final three reports commissioned as part of the scoping study of potential research infrastructure for HASS and Indigenous research platforms'. I withdraw the second part of my request for related recommendations and briefing notes.

Yours sincerely,

Tim Sherratt
