FOI request:

1.Both the Statement of Expectation (from the Minister's office), and the replying Statement of Intent (from AFTRS) for each year from the period of 2004-2005 to the present. Or, if the document does not exist for that year - any equivalent documents that set out directives or expectations from the government to the School, as well as the direct responses from the School to those documents.  I would expect these documents to be part of  a formal annual exchange between the Minister's Department and the School.

3. All documents passed between the government and AFTRS relating to the government funded initiatives in Digital Interactivity and Cross Platform Production and Screen Business skill sets that provided a sum of $9 million over a period of three years from 2004-2005 to 2006-2007.  In addition - and most importantly - all documents related to the process of this funding being made ongoing in the 2007-2008 budget, including any documents that relate to the specific expectations to the intended continuing use of this funding.

4. In a representation to the ENVIRONMENT, COMMUNICATIONS, INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY AND THE ARTS LEGISLATION COMMITTEE - 24/05/2006, then AFTRS CEO Malcolm Long was asked if there were any tests or outcomes to be measured against the additional $9 million in digital funding. He replied, "We have quite sepecific perfromance measures in relation to interest in the programs, the number of people who go through them, tracking ther careers after they have done the programs and following up with other programs, which can build a profile of development over time. " I would like to see the documents relating to these performance measures from 2005 to the present.
