We have interpreted the scope of your request as being for “all documents
the OAIC holds in relation to any exemptions or waivers the OAIC receives
as a superannuation provider created on or after 1 January 2017 up to date
of your FOI request on 7 January 2022.”

Can you please confirm that our interpretation is correct? I would greatly
appreciate your response as soon as possible but by no later than 24
January 2022. If we do not hear from you by this date we will continue to
process the request in accordance with the above interpretation.

In order to process your request as efficiently as possible, I will
exclude duplicates and early parts of email streams that are captured in
later email streams from the scope of this request, unless you advise me

We will not identify you as the FOI applicant during any consultation
process. However, documents that are within the scope of your request that
we may need to consult third parties about may contain your personal

Timeframes for dealing with your request

Section 15 of the FOI Act requires this office to process your request no
later than 30 days after the day we receive it. However, section 15(6) of
the FOI Act allows us a further 30 days in situations where we need to
consult with third parties about certain information, such as business
documents or documents affecting their personal privacy.

As we received your request on 7 January 2022, we must process your
request by 7 February 2022.

Disclosure Log

Documents released under the FOI Act may be published online on our
disclosure log, unless they contain personal or business information that
would be unreasonable to publish.
