Complaint dated 9 June 2011 to Ombudsman about the FOI delay of Prime Minister Department

Dear Prof McMillan,
I made the FOI inquiry on 8 May 2009 more than two years ago. The reference number of the inquiry is FOI/2009/032.

I complain that the Legal Policy Branch of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet has failed to release the FOI documents after the Department decided to release the documents without charge on 17 February 2011. The relevant officers have no ideas when the documents can be released. Please find the enclosed communications with the officers. I believe the Department’s performance is unacceptable. Please help the officers do their job properly.
