We used the Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) to perform a radio
observation of the short GRB 220831A at 5.5 and 9 GHz. The scheduled observations
began on 2022 Sept 14 UT for 5 hours (4 days post-burst; Fermi GBM Team
GCN 32511, which had been localised by Swift/BAT-GUANO; A. Tohuvavohu et al.,
GCN 32506). No radio source was detected at the candidate Swift-XRT, VLT/HAWK-I
and DECam afterglow position (S. Dichiara et al., GCN 32510; P. D���Avanzo et al.,
GCN 32513; A. Moller et al., GCN 32516), with 3 sigma upper-limits of 39 microJy
and 36 microJy at 5.5 and 9 GHz, respectively.

We thank the ATCA and CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science (CASS) staff for
scheduling these observations.
