Australian Secret Intelligence Service

Part of the Attorney-General portfolio and a Federal authority, also called ASIS

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.
