Dear Department of Education,
Could you please send through the latest document that describes the process the department goes through to determine if they will uphold a request for an exemption from the Unique Student Identifier?
If possible, please treat this as an administrative/informal request. Otherwise please proceed with my request as a formal information request under the Act.
Taylor Denny and Shaun Prakash
Dear Mr Denny and Mr Prakash,
Thank you for your request of 15 November 2016 regarding unique student
identifier (USI) exemptions.
I have discussed your request with the USI area and they are happy to
provide you with the following information (outside of the FOI Act):
‘Exemptions from the Unique Student Identifier (USI) to individuals are
granted by the Student Identifiers Registrar a statutory office holder
whose functions are set out in the Student Identifiers Act 2014 and
subordinate legislation. Individual exemption procedures are set out at
s.7(2) of the Student Identifiers (Exemptions) Instrument 2014 (the text
of which can be found at
https://www.legislation.gov.au/Details/F...) and in more detail
on the USI website at
Department of Education and Training
Dear Education - FOI,
Thanks for your assistance.
