Not that I have found yet.  There was a couple of RTI requests that were either refused or withdrawn that related to so matters.  It is not a completely transparent process the RTI system.  Responses are often heavily redacted too.   It is all we have got in this ' open and transparent ' State of Qld.



If you have time have a look at Documents tabled at the Fair Work Commission Qld, it might be there believe it or not.

5 February 2018 135/05520-MIN

Documents relating to discussions around Andy Byford and the vacant chief executive officer position at Queensland Rail when Jackie Trad was Transport Minister. Documents should include emails to and from the Minister's office mentioning the name Andy Byford and mentions of Andy Byford in the Minister's diary, including a meeting on 10 February 2017, described publicly as a meeting with the "candidate for CEO QR”. Time frame for request:: 1 January 2017 - 8 March 2017. (This application was made to the Minister for Transport and Main Roads)     Currently being processed

===========================

Interesting.  I had heard that Andy Byford was the preferred candidate for CEQ QR but due to leaking early declined.

I can't imagine any grounds for such refusal as previous ones were openly published on the internet, so what changed??

One of the reasons I am familiarising myself with the RTI disclosure logs as I am attempting to come to terms as to how to frame the requests, should I need to do that in 22 days or so  :P.  I think if  the request is too broad and overlaps with Cabinet confidentiality etc. then could be refused.  There are lot of requests in process for Minister Bailey email correspondence in the 2018 log.  Good luck with that whomever has requested it ...

- All subsidised regional long distance air and coach services (with the relevant operator identified).

School bus service information may be aggregated on the basis of a total figure for all services provided by a single contractor.

Advice has been received that this RTI application is considered to voluminous due the lack of electronic records prior to FY 2012/13, and difficulty in generating line data for Queensland Rail Citytrain.  Accordingly application has been revised to:

Quote
“Annual patronage statistics (in the form of Excel spreadsheets) for each financial
year from 2012/2013 to 2016/2017 inclusive for each of the following Queensland
Government subsidised services:
- All TransLink urban bus, tram and ferry services in South-East Queensland

- Queensland Rail City Network by station entrances.
- Queensland Rail Travel Network by station entrances and broken down between
routes.
School bus service information may be aggregated on the basis of a total figure for

Right to Information Day

Right to Know Day is celebrated annually across Australia and around the world on 28 September. In Queensland we mark Right to Know Day as Right to Information Day (RTID) to acknowledge the contribution of the Right to Information Act 2009 (Qld) (RTI Act) to facilitating greater and easier access to government-held information.

As part of RTID celebrations on 24-28 September 2018, Information Commissioner Rachael Rangihaeata is available for interview to discuss information access rights and responsibilities in Queensland.

This year’s theme is ‘Trust and Transparency’ as OIC focuses on moving from adopting the principles of the RTI Act to embedding a deeper culture of openness and transparency within the public sector. This contributes to building greater trust in the services we provide to the community.

The Office of the Information Commissioner, Queensland (OIC) encourages all government agencies to conduct their activities with openness, transparency and accountability, as they are the key foundations of good governance, and the benefits of community trust and engagement are indisputable.

RTID is an opportunity to remind Queenslanders about their right to access government-held information, as well as the government’s responsibility to release information informally and formally.

The RTI Act applies to Queensland state Government departments and Ministers, local councils, public universities, statutory authorities, government-owned corporations and other public authorities.
