Dear Shirley Freedom of Information Request: Acknowledgement
Thank you for your 2 requests of 13 June 2021, under the Freedom of Information Act 1982
(FOI Act) for copies of documents held by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). Scope of your request
As per section 24(2)(b) of the FOI Act, an agency may treat 2 or more requests as a single
request if the subject matter is substantially the same; therefore, we have combined your 2
requests into one request.
The scope of this combined request is:
“…Please provide copies of all Audit and Risk Committee (ARC) Minutes of Meeting for the
financial year 2013-14, cited in the NDIA 2013-14 Annual Report.
….Please provide copies of all Audit and Risk Committee (ARC) Minutes of Meeting for the
financial year 2014-15, cited in the NDIA 2014-15 Annual Report…”
Unless you advise otherwise by 5:00pm 30 June 2021, we will take it that you agree to the
names and contact details of NDIA staff being excluded from the scope of your request (that is,
the information will be treated as irrelevant). Processing timeframes
We received your request on 13 June 2021 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 13 July 2021.
The period may be extended if we need to consult with third parties or for other reasons. We will
advise you if this happens. Charges
We may apply a processing charge to your request and will advise you as soon as practicable
if a charge is payable.
Information released under the FOI Act may be published on the NDIA’s disclosure log located
on our website, subject to certain exceptions.
If you have any concerns about the publication of information you have requested, please
contact us. Further help
Please contact us at email@example.com
if you have any questions or need help.
We will contact you using the email address you provided. Please advise if you would prefer us
to use an alternative means of contact.
