Dear Ms Middleton
Internal Review Acknowledgement of your Freedom of Information Request
I refer to your request for internal review of the Freedom of Information (FOI) decision LEX 50114,
dated 3 February 2020.
Timeframe for processing your internal review
Your request was received by Services Australia on 4 February 2020 and the 30 day statutory
period for processing your request commenced from the day after that date. You should therefore
expect a decision from us by 5 March 2020.
In accordance with section 54C of the FOI Act a person (other than the person who made the
original decision) will be the decision maker for this internal review.
The FOI Act requires that you provide us with an address which we can send notices to. You have
advised your electronic address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will send
all notices and correspondence to this address. Please advise us as soon as possible if you wish
correspondence to be sent to another address or if your address changes. If you do not advise us of
changes to your address, correspondence and notices will continue to be sent to the address
Please note that information released under the FOI Act may be published in a disclosure log on
Services Australia's website. Section 11C of the FOI Act requires this publication, however it is
subject to certain exceptions, including where publication of personal, business, professional or
commercial information would be unreasonable.

Exclusion of junior staff details
Services Australia is working towards ensuring that all staff have a choice about whether they
provide their full name, personal logon identifiers and direct contact details in response to public
enquiries. Where such details are included in the scope of a request, this may add to processing
time and applicable charges as it may be necessary to consider whether the details are exempt
under the FOI Act. On this basis, unless you tell us otherwise, we will assume that these details are
out of scope of your request and they will be redacted under section 22 of the FOI Act.
If you have any questions please email email@example.com.
