RBoT NGR Inquiry RTI applications.
« on: May 25, 2018, 07:17:31 AM »
I will be working on our initial RTI applications to support the Inquiry over the next few days.

Initial strategy will be to request documents, memos, letters, emails, meeting minutes, briefings and any attached post it notes, or other attachments (hand written or other) to said documents,  at DTMR and between DTMR, Transport Minister's Office (Minister and/or Staff), Queensland Rail, Bombardier, and Qtectic, and which in some way relate to or refer to New Generation Rollingstock over 3 key periods.

Period 1: January 2010 > July 2012.

Period 2. August 2012 > December 2014

Period 3. January 2015 > May 2018.

Additionally a RTI to Queensland Rail for Meeting Minutes of the Queensland Rail Board January 2015 through to April 2018.

Nothing heard re RTI application 2.  to Queensland Rail.  (Not surprising is it?  :P).

1st July 2017 - 31st December 2017

Advice has been received that no documents were located.  That is why RTI number 4 was submitted.

Quote
... Search Results
I have met with officers from the Minister’s Office to discuss this application and the
searches that were undertaken to locate documents relevant to the scope of the application.
I was advised that after conducting searches for documents relevant to the scope of the
request, no documents were located.
In addition, and as advised in my correspondence dated 5 June 2018, it was confirmed that
Minister Bailey, the current Minister for Transport and Main Roads was not the relevant
Minister at the time of first revenue service for the NGR, which occurred on
11 December 2017. ...

2. Queensland Rail - Minutes and associated documents of Queensland Rail Board Meetings 1st January 2015 - 30th April 2018

Advice has been received that RTI number 2 is too voluminous (~ 22,000 pages).  Under the act a modified application can be made.
Will submit for items (minutes and associated documents) concerning NGR and their introduction to service, period July 2017 - January 2018.

Made application to narrow the scope:

Thank you for the response to our RTI application (RTI-450).

I accept it is not reasonable.  I would like to therefore narrow the scope as follows:

Queensland Rail Board Meeting minutes and associated documents concerning NGR and their introduction to service, period 1 July 2017 to 31st January 2018.

Thank you.

Regards
Robert
