Dear Mr Fairless,  
 
Acknowledgment of Freedom of Information Request 
 
I refer to your email received by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission 
(ASIC) on 14 November 2018 in which you seek access to the following under the Freedom 
of Information Act 1982
 (Cth) (FOI Act): 
 
Under section 23 of the Freedom of Information Act, the principal officer or minister can 
make arrangements to give their decision making powers to others. 
 
I'm hoping you can provide me with a copy of the current arrangements if possible. 
 
I have decided to consider your request through the formal process under the FOI Act rather 
than to release the documents through administrative release. As such, I have acknowledged 
your email dated 14 November 2018 as a formal FOI request in accordance with your email 
instructions.  
 
The 30-day statutory time period for processing your request commenced on the day after the 
day on which your request is received (s 15(5) of the FOI Act). The period of 30 days may be 
extended if we need to consult third parties or for other reasons. We will advise you if this 
happens.  
 
Please note that information released under the FOI Act may later be published online on our 
disclosure log, subject to certain exceptions (for example, personal information will not be 
published where this would be unreasonable).  
 
Should you have any questions concerning the processing of your request I can be contacted 
by phone or email as below.  
 
 
 

 

 
 
Yours sincerely,  
 
Jessica Zhang
