Dear Administrative Appeals Tribunal,

I seek a copy of the termination email sent to Terry Carney in the month of September 2017.

The email is referenced within this article:
https://www.crikey.com.au/2019/09/25/how...

Given this FOI request is in regards to a matter of public interest (namely, the independence of the AAT), I ask that the usually applicable FOI fee be waived in this instance.

Yours faithfully,

John Smith

FOI Requests,

Dear Mr Smith

 

Freedom of Information Request FOI20/080

 

I refer to your request under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI
Act) for access to documents.

 

I seek a copy of the termination email sent to Terry Carney in the month
of September 2017.

 

The email is referenced within this article:

[1]https://www.crikey.com.au/2019/09/25/how...

 

This request has been transferred to the Attorney-General's Department as
the agency responsible for this matter. If you disagree with the above
interpretation of your request, please let me know in writing as soon as
possible.

 

The Administrative Appeals Tribunal received your request on 29 May 2020
and the 30 day statutory period for processing your request commenced from
the day after that date. You should therefore expect a decision from the
Attorney-General's Department by 29 June 2020. However, the period of
30 days may be extended if the department needs to consult third parties
or for other reasons. We will advise you if this happens.

 

Where the documents within the scope of an FOI request include the
personal information of junior officers of the department or other
government authorities, the department’s practice is to not disclose
that information (e.g., names, contact details). The names of senior
officers will generally be disclosed. In addition, duplicates and
incomplete email chains within the scope of the FOI request will be
excluded.

 

Please note that, with some exceptions (such as personal information),
documents released under the FOI Act may later be published online on the
department’s disclosure log

If you have any questions, please contact me by email at [3][email address].

 

Yours sincerely

Julia

FOI Case Officer
