Office of Ethnic Communities- OIA request EC20200144
The request was successful.
From: john luke
Dear Department of Internal Affairs,
Thank you for your reply on my earlier request under the OIA EC20200144.
As noted on your reply, "an external panel considers requests of over $10,000. The panels consist of four to six members each."
May I ask the member who sit on this external panel and how you select them from the general public? How much fees they have been paid for each meeting and any reimbursement they have received. Also, how long are their term of appointment and any bio of the member you can share. How many meeting they have had so far and may I have the minutes of all their meeting.
Department of Internal Affairs
Tçnâ koe John,
Thank you for your OIA request to the Department of Internal Affairs (included with this email)

Please note that in cases where the Department’s response provides information that is identified to be of general public interest, the response may also be published on the Department of Internal Affairs website. If the Department publishes its response to your OIA request, all personal information, including your name and contact details, will be removed.
