Delivered

Dear Election Funding Authority of NSW,

I have 2 questions for some research I am doing on the use of end of life operating systesm within Government.

Firstly does your organisation still have Windows XP hosts, and if so roughly how many endpoints do you have.

Secondly, what have ben your ongoing support costs to Microsoft for end of life support, if indeed there are any since it was officialy retired on the 1st May in 2014.

Thaks in advance,

Eric P

Dear Eric

 

Your enquiry was forwarded to me to provide a response.

 

Your access application in the email below is an invalid access
application because it does not satisfy the formal requirements for access
applications under s.41 of the Government Information (Public Access) Act
2009 (GIPA Act), i.e., it was not accompanied by a fee of $30 and it did
not state a postal address as the address for correspondence in connection
with the application.

 

To assist your informal request, I have made relevant enquires and advise
that the NSWEC does not have any computer machines installed with Windows
XP operating system.

 

You can locate further information about the GIPA Act and our GIPA policy
on our webpage
[1]http://www.elections.nsw.gov.au/about_us... or by
contacting the Office of the Information Commissioner.

 

Regards

I have marked this request as successful. The agency has told the applicant that his request does not satisfy formal requirements for a GIPA Act request. The officer has provided information about the GIPA Act but has also responded to the request informally and says, "To assist your informal request, I have made relevant enquires and advise that the NSWEC does not have any computer machines installed with Windows XP operating system."
