Extension of time under s 15AB
Dear Mr Hirsch
On 20 December 2018, the Australian Federal Police (the AFP) applied for further time to
make a decision on your FOI request of 26 October 2018.
This application was on the basis that the processing period is insufficient to deal adequately
with your request, because it is complex.
previously obtained your agreement under s 15AA of the FOI Act for an
extension of time.
As a delegate of the Information Commissioner, I am authorised to make decisions on
applications for extensions of time under s 15AB of the FOI Act. I have decided to grant the
AFP an extension of time under s 15AB(2) of the FOI Act to 24 January 2019
By granting an extension of time it is anticipated that the AFP will provide a well-reasoned
and better managed decision.
If you have any questions about this email, please contact me on (02) 9284 9686 or via email
[email address]. In all correspondence please include OAIC reference number
