This correspondence is to acknowledge receipt of your request. Currently a

Extension of time application by the Department of Industry, Science,
Energy and Resources

Dear Mr Ballard

 

I write to advise that on 25 January 2021, the Office of the Australian
Information Commissioner (the OAIC) received an application from the
Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (the Department) for
an extension of time, to process your FOI request.

 

The Department has applied for an extension of time under s 15AC of the
Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth) because it has been unable to
finalise your request within the initial decision period.

 

The Department has advised the OAIC that:

 

·         on 6 December 2020, the Department received your request

between 8 December 2020 to 15 January 2021, searches were conducted

·         on 10 December 2020, the Department requested a 15AA extension
of time from you, however a response was not received

·         the Department advise the FOI team is currently reviewing
documents located during the searches and undertaking internal
consultations

·         the Department advises that you have made two separate FOI
requests and 1 internal review request relating to similar subject matter,
to which the Department has also received a large volume of requests since
June 2020

·         due to the large volume of requests, significant amount of
resources has been devoted to processing these requests, and

·         the Department advise due to the Christmas/New Year shutdown
period, this caused a delay in processing your request, and additional
time is required to finalise the request.

 

The Department has requested an extension to 24 February 2021. I will take
any comments you may have to make into account when deciding the
application.

 

Please respond to this email by close of business 29 January 2021. If I do
not hear from you by this date, the decision maker will make a decision on
the basis of the information provided to me by the Department.

 

You will be notified of the decision once the matter has been finalised.

 

Further information about extension of time requests may be found on our
website at [2]Extensions of time.
