What do I need to do to respond to FOI?

To respond you will need to:

  • send the FOI officer an estimate of the time it will take you to find and provide the information
  • search, locate and retrieve all information in your possession relevant to the request
  • document any objections you may have to the release of the information
  • send the information in either hardcopy of electronic format to the FOI officers (foi@anu.edu.au) within the deadline stipulated
  • inform the FOI officers of the time spent searching for, locating and retrieving information.

All information and communications must be directed to the FOI officers at foi@anu.edu.au. The FOI Officers work in collaboration with the Legal Office, therefore all information provided and decisions regarding that information will be thoroughly vetted by the Legal Office.
