Dear Tesi Fel

 

I refer to your email dated 10 December 2019, in which you seek access to
documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the Act) as follows:

 

Information in relation to the following AFP departments as their
establishment, purpose and specific operational responsibilities assigned
to the

 

National Response Operations team 3, Crime Operations;

Response and Human Trafficking; and

Victim Based Crime Team, Crime Operations.

 

Timeframe

 

Your confirmation to proceed with your request was received by this agency
on 10 December 2019, and the 30 day statutory period for processing your
request commenced from that date. The due date for your request is 9
January 2020.

 

Information considered irrelevant to the scope of your request

 

The AFP, in its management of FOI requests, excludes the following
information on the basis that is irrelevant to the scope of a request:

 

-      Names of AFP members, other than the Senior Executive.

-      Direct telephone numbers, signatures and mobile telephone numbers
of AFP members.

-      Duplicate documents, including duplicate emails.  The AFP will only
provide emails where they form a final email chain and the
authors/recipients are contained within the final email. 

-      Information that is publicly available, for example, newspaper
articles, online publications including information available on the AFP
Information Publication Scheme and the AFP disclosure log.

 

If you object to the AFP excluding any of the above information, please
advise this office within seven days of receipt of this email.

 

Charges

 

You will be notified of any charges in accordance with the Freedom of
Information (Fees and Charges) Regulations, should they apply, in relation
to your request as soon as practicable. 

 

Information Publication Scheme

 

Please be advised that effective 1 May 2011 and in accordance with section
8(2) of the Act, an agency is required to publish information on the AFP
website following the notification of a decision in respect of a freedom
of information request.  Details of the decision will be published in a
Disclosure Log which can be found at
[1]https://www.afp.gov.au/about-us/informat....

 

The requirement to publish information released under FOI reinforces the
objectives of the FOI Act to promote a pro-disclosure culture across
government and to increase recognition that information held by government
is a national resource.  Exceptions to the requirement to publish
information would apply to personal information and information concerning
the business affairs of a person if it was considered ‘unreasonable’ to do
so. 

 

If, however, after noting the above, you wish to raise any concerns about
the publication of information concerning your request prior to the
notification of a decision, please advise this office in writing before 9
January 2020.

 

Yours sincerely

Good afternoon,

 

Your Freedom of Information Request

 

I refer to your email dated 10 December 2019 in which you seek access to
documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982.

 

Upon consideration of your request, the AFP is of the view that your
request will take longer than 30 days to process.  The delay is
regrettable, however, due to the AFP’s stand down period for Christmas and
New Year being within the original decision making time and the
requirement to undertaken further searches with the relevant line areas to
identify relevant documents, the AFP will be unable to finalise this
matter within the 30 day time frame, therefore it will not be possible to
advise you of a decision by 9 January 2020.

 

Accordingly, pursuant to section 15AA of the Act, I seek your agreement to
extend the period to notify you of a decision to on or before 8 February
2020.

 

I apologise for the delay and any inconvenience this may cause and will
endeavour to provide you with a decision as possible.

 

I would be grateful if you would advise this office in writing of your
agreement to the proposed extension of time before close of business 9
January 2020. 

 

If you have any queries in relation to this matter, please do not hesitate
to contact this office.

 

Kind regards,
