The Director, Corporate Information, is the departments decision-maker on FOI applications and also works with the Information Technology Services Division on information management issues. Key Achievements Established the Freedom of Information and Privacy Branch, to provide training and advice to departmental staff about FOI and privacy issues and to process FOI applications. Five applications were processed in 2003-04, all within statutory timeframes. Upgraded the skills in the Corporate Information Branch, including increasing the level of the Manager, Corporate Information, from A 06 to A 0 7 and establishing a new position of Assistant Manager, Corporate Information, at A 06 level. Both positions were recruited to in 2003-04. Restructured the Corporate Information Branch to allocate resources more effectively to address outstanding information management issues. This included consolidating the majority of staff at Berrimah Farm in Darwin, where the majority of processing work occurs. Established to two inter-related projects to address areas of outstanding need in records management. The Records Disposal and Thesaurus projects are essential to departmental efforts to comply with Part 9 of the Act.
