The Australian Information Commission has made an updated ruling relating to the disclosure of personal information of a successful applicant in Australian Public Service (APS) recruitment processes.
Information Commissioner, John McMillan ruled that, with the exception of the name of the successful applicant and a statement that the applicant had been selected for promotion, the remaining vocational assessment information was the personal information of the successful applicant.
“The disclosure of this information would be unreasonable under the FOI Act and contrary to the public interest,” Professor McMillan said.
