Hello Henare,

I didn’t mention the extension request in my email, however it is requested in the letter.

We are requesting an extension of time as there appears to be more than one file to process in your request.

It would be appreciated if you could advise this office if you agree to the extension under s15AA of the FOI Act.

Kind regards

Our reference: RQ14/01665

Agency reference: CRM2015/23

Dear Henare Degan

Extension of time request under s15AB

On 31 July 2014, the Australian Federal Police requested further time to
make a decision on your FOI request of 13 July 2014

This request was on the basis that the processing period is insufficient
to deal adequately with your request, because it is complex or voluminous.

The Information Commissioner has decided to grant Australian Federal
Police an extension of time of 30 days for this request, to 12 September
2014. This decision has been made under s15AB(2) of the Freedom of
Information Act 1982 (Cth) (the Act).

Review rights

If you are unhappy with the way we have handled this matter, you may
complain to the Commonwealth Ombudsman. This service is free, and you can
contact the office on 1300 362 072 or visit [1]www.ombudsman.gov.au.
