Australian Secret Intelligence Service
Our functions, as set out in the Intelligence Services Act 2001, are to:
- collect foreign intelligence, not available by other means, which may impact on Australia's interests;
- distribute that intelligence to the Government, including key policy departments and agencies;
- undertake counter-intelligence activities which protect Australia's interests and initiatives; and,
- engage other intelligence and security services overseas in Australia's national interests.
This authority is not obliged to respond to your request under FOI, but we feel it should be.
Only requests made using Right To Know are shown. ?
