Dear Asher

I refer to your application dated 19 April 2018 in which you seek access to documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the Act) as per your request below.

Information considered irrelevant to the scope of your request

The AFP, in its management of FOI requests, excludes the following information on the basis that is irrelevant to the scope of a request:

- Names of AFP members, other than the Senior Executive.
- Direct telephone numbers, signatures and mobile telephone numbers of AFP members.
- Duplicate documents, including duplicate emails. The AFP will only provide emails where they form a final email chain and the authors/recipients are contained within the final email.
- Information that is publicly available, for example, newspaper articles, online publications including information available on the AFP Information Publication Scheme and the AFP disclosure log.

If you object to the AFP excluding any of the above information, please advise this office within seven days of receipt of this letter.

In addition, should the AFP be required to consult with third parties in accordance with the sections 26A (Commonwealth/State information), 27 (business affairs) and 27A (personal information) of the Act, do you have any objections to those parties/organisations knowing your identity for the purposes of the consultation? If we do not receive your consent or do not receive a response, we will not disclosure your identity to third parties.

Your request was received by this agency on 19 April 2018, and the 30 day statutory period for processing your request commenced from that date.

You will be notified of any charges in accordance with the Freedom of Information (Fees and Charges) Regulations, should they apply, in relation to your request as soon as practicable.

Disclosure Log

Please be advised that in accordance with section 11C of the Act, an agency is required to publish information on their website following the notification of a decision in respect of a freedom of information request.

The requirement to publish information released under FOI reinforces the objectives of the FOI Act to promote a pro-disclosure culture across government and to increase recognition that information held by government is a national resource. Exceptions to the requirement to publish information would apply to personal information and information concerning the business affairs of a person if it was considered ‘unreasonable’ to do so. Details of the decision may be published in a Disclosure Log which can be found at https://www.afp.gov.au/about-us/informat.... Publication will be made in accordance with timeframes stipulated in section 11C of the Act.

If, however, after noting the above, you wish to raise any concerns about the publication of information concerning your request prior to the notification of a decision, please advise this office in writing before 19 May 2018. If you do not raise any concerns prior to the date of the decision, the AFP will publish the information as notified to you in the decision.

Regards,
