Dear Mr Molloy
Freedom of Information Request no. FOI13/194

I refer to your request for access to documents relating to Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement under the Freedom of Information Act 1982. I have taken your request to be for:

Documents relating to any discussion or advice (given or received) regarding the ALRC Copyright Review in the context of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement.

We received your request on 31 October 2013 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 2 December 2013. The period of 30 days may be extended if we need to consult third parties or for other reasons. We will advise you if this happens.

Please note that information released under the FOI Act may later be published online on our disclosure log http://www.ag.gov.au/RightsAndProtection..., subject to certain exceptions. (For example, personal information will not be published where this would be unreasonable.)

Dear Mr Molloy

Re: AGD FOI matter no. 13/194

I refer to your request for access to documents relating to the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act).

I would like to request your consent to an extension of time to enable us to complete your request.

Under section 15AA of the FOI, an agency may seek an applicant's written agreement for an extension of up to 30 days.

The reason I am seeking this extension is that the department is undertaking consultations with interested parties. The department is obliged to consider their views as part of the decision making process, which should see the department reach the correct decision on the material, in the first instance.

At present, the due date for the completion of your request is Monday 2 December 2013.

Should you be agreeable to a 7 day extension, your request would fall due on Monday 9 December 2013.

Would you please advise us in writing whether you agree to this extension of time.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss this request, please contact AGD FOI at [AGD request email].

With regards,

AGD FOI & Privacy

[Insert officer name, position and phone number] or by email [AGD request email].

Dear Insert Officer Name,

I do not consent to an extension, as the the request is simple, straightforward, and the relevance of the information wanes as time drags on.
