Dear Mr Mott

Apart from the wording "Foreign Affairs & Trade Ministerial office" this request is identical to the one where you sought documents that named Peter Varghese and Julie Bishop. Would you like to roll both requests into one and change the scope to "any documents or correspondence between the AFP, ASIO and Foreign affairs and Trade members such as Peter Varghese and Julie Bishop and the DFAT Ministerial office in relation to the arrival and departure of intended Jihadist fighters...etc"?

I would be grateful if you could let me know as soon as possible.

Regards

Good Afternoon,

Your Freedom of Information Request

I refer to your below application dated 29 February 2016 in which you seek access to documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the Act).

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 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.

Your request was received by this agency on 29 February 2016 and the 30 day statutory period for processing your request commenced from that date.

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 in accordance with section 8(2) of the Act, an agency is required to publish information on their website following the notification of a decision in respect of a freedom of information request.

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. Details of the decision may be published in a Disclosure Log which can be found at http://www.afp.gov.au/about-the-afp/info....

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 March 2016. If you do not raise any concerns, the AFP will publish the information as notified to you in the decision.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Yours sincerely,
Tammii
