Dear T Wilson-Brown 
Third party consultation under the Freedom of information Act 2016 
I refer to your access application under the Freedom of information Act 2016 (FOI Act), 
received 24 February 2021. 
I am writing to tell you that we have identified information relevant to your application that 
concerns the affairs of a third party. This information is expected to be of concern to the 
third party because it relates to their personal or business affairs, or the affairs of a 
government or government agency.  
Under section 38 of the FOI Act, we are required to consult with the third party before 
making a decision on the release of this information.  
For this reason, as provided under section 40 of the FOI Act, the period for processing your 
application has been extended by 15 working days in order to allow us to consult with the 
third party.  
A decision on your access application is now due on 19 April 2021. 
I will then take into account any comments I receive from the third party. However, the 
final decision on whether to grant you access to the information requested rests with me as 
the decision-maker. 
If you would like to contact me directly on this matter, please do so at on 02 6205 0224 or 
Yours sincerely 
Ro Spence 
Deputy Electoral Commissioner
