How can I make a request

Please note that ANU will shut down from Friday 23 December 2022 until Monday 2 January 2023 inclusive, reopening on Tuesday 3 January 2023. This shutdown period and staff absences may affect the processing of FOI applications. Where the timelines are impacted we will liaise with the applicant to discuss a s 15AA extension of time agreement. Any applications lodged online during the shutdown period will be responded to when the University reopens
