At present, we have retrieved documents relevant to points 3 and 4 of your
FOI request. We are still working with the business area to identify and
retrieve the documents relevant to points 1 and 2 of your FOI request.

Noting that a decision for this matter is due on 11 November 2020, the
Department considers that it will require more time to process this
request to retrieve all relevant documents, apply the relevant exemptions
and to draft and finalise a decision. For this reason we would be grateful
for your agreement to an extension of time under Section 15AA of the
[1]Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act). This would have the effect
of extending the decision date for this matter to 11 December 2020.

Please note that if you do not agree to an extension of time, and the
Department considers that it will require more time to process your
request, we may apply to the Office of Australian Information Commissioner
for an extension of time under section 15AB of the FOI Act.
