Freedom of Information

Freedom of Information Procedures and Contact Points

A request for access to documents under the Act must be made in writing and provide sufficient information concerning the documents to enable a responsible officer in Defence to identify them. The request has to be accompanied by a $30 application fee and should include a telephone number and a return address at which the applicant can be contacted. In some cases, a fee may not be required or may be remitted by the department. Requests may be sent by post or delivered to an officer of the department at the address of the central office (in Canberra, see below), or any regional office of the department specified in a current telephone directory. The following address is preferable:

Freedom of Information Directorate
Defence Legal
RG Casey Building (RGC-2-058)
Department of Defence
CANBERRA ACT 2600

Advice about making a request under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 may be obtained by telephoning the directorate on (02) 6266 8860 or (02) 6266 8855, by facsimile on (02) 6266 8857 or by email to FOI.enquiries@defence.gov.au. Applicants seeking access to documents may be liable to pay charges at rates prescribed by the Freedom of Information (Fees and Charges) Regulations.
