FOI/2019/009

 

Dear Jackson,

 

Thank you for your below email dated 9 January 2019, in which you made a
request to the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (the
Department) under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the FOI Act) in the
following terms:

 

The document containing the most senior authorisation for the Prime
Minister's 2018 family Christmas picture used on his website before 8
January 2019. If no explicit authorisation for the picture exists, can you
provide the most senior authorisation of the website revisions containing
the 2018 family Christmas picture before 8 January 2019.

 

Timeframe for receiving your decision

 

We received your request on 9 January 2019 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 8 February 2019. The period
of 30 days may be extended in certain circumstances. We will advise you if
there is any extension of time.

 

Charges

 

Agencies may decide that an applicant is liable to pay a charge in respect
of a request for access to documents. If the Department decides that you
are liable to pay a charge, we will send you a preliminary assessment of
the charge as soon as possible.

 

Publication of documents

 

Please note that information released under the FOI Act may later be
published online on our disclosure log at
[1]http://www.dpmc.gov.au/pmc/accountabilit...,
subject to certain exceptions. If you think you might wish to raise any
objections to the publication of any of the information which may be
released to you please contact us by email at [2][DPMC request email].  If you
do wish to object to the publication of information, you would need to
provide supporting reasons.

 

Exclusion of officers’ names and contact details

 

For documents that fall within scope of the request, it is the
Department’s policy to withhold:

·        any person’s signature;

·        the names and contact details of Australian Public Service
officers not in the Senior Executive Service (SES);

·        the mobile or direct numbers of SES officers;

·        the names and contact details of Ministerial staff at a level
below Chief of Staff.

 

The names and other details of SES officers will not be withheld unless
there is some reason for that information to be exempt from release. If
you require any of the above information please let me know so the
decision-maker may consider; otherwise we will take it that you agree to
that information being excluded from the scope of your request (that is,
the information will be treated as irrelevant and redacted from any
documents for release).

 

I will write again when the Department has more information. Further
information on FOI processing can be found at the website of the Office of
the Australian Information Commissioner at

Regards,

 

Brad
