Dear Uni Student AJ

 

I refer to your request received on 29 September 2015.

 

This email is further to my correspondence dated 9 October 2015 where I
was seeking clarification from you on the interpretation of the scope for
your request. Our records indicate that you have not provided further
advice to the Department.

 

Without this information the Department has been unable to process your
request as a result the request has not yet been registered as valid under
the FOI Act. This is becasue you have not yet satisfied the full
requirements under s.15 of the FOI Act.

 

If you wish to proceed with this FOI request please provide the Department
with clarification on the types of documents / information it is you wish
to access. In particular you have used the term ‘activities’ can you
please clarify what you mean by the inclusion of this term. For example
are you seeking access to policy type documents in connection to the scope
of your request?

 

Please provide this advice, in writing to [1][email address] by close of
business Thursday 5 November 2015.

 

If no response is received by this date the Department will close your
request as invalid. The reason for this is because you have not provided
sufficient information to allow a reasonable office for this agency to
identify the specific documents it is you wish to access.

 

If you wish to discuss the matter you may contact me on the details below.

 

Yours sincerely
