I write seeking information under the Freedom of Information Act, and in response to a statement issued by secretary Martin Parkinson on 25 August, specifically:

all documents prepared or distributed by the department (including Mr Parkinson), or originating from the Prime Minister's office but where the department (including Mr Parkinson) were involved and have possession, regarding policy and operational engagement between departments and any Ministers who may be resigning or have resigned, as well as support services for Ministers or former Ministers under such circumstances, including the message Mr Parkinson gave to department secretaries that "a key requirement is that departing Ministers and their office be supported and accorded utmost courtesy and respect".

By Ministers or former Ministers I mean generally, or where named and dealt with individually. The date range for this request should be the period since 21 August 2018 and scope should include, but not be limited to, correspondence involving the department/Mr Parkinson (whether or not via PMO) and Ministerial and Parliamentary Services regarding the above-mentioned issues, noting that the Ministerial Handbook also gives the Prime Minister a role in determining the timing of such arrangements. I note, in relation to any documents pertaining to the former Prime Minister or Ministers, that the FOI Act regards possession as the determinative factor, not source, and these matters are agency business for the department. I advise that I am not interested in duplicate copies of documents or documents that have already been publically released, or media releases, media articles or media statements.
