Good Afternoon Mr Degan,

         

Your Freedom of Information Request

 

I refer to your email of 16 September 2016 in which you seek access to
documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the Act) as follows:

 

“A copy of file number 2015/00011727 "CITIZENSHIP LOSS BOARD - AFP
PARTICIPATION "

 

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 letter.

 

Your request was received by this agency on 16 September 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. 

 

Disclosure Log

 

Please be advised that in accordance with section 11C 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
[1]https://www.afp.gov.au/about-us/informat....
Publication will be made in accordance with timeframes stipulated in
section 11C of the Act.

 

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 16
October 2016.  If you do not raise any concerns prior to the date of the
decision, the AFP will publish the information as notified to you in the
decision.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Mr Degan

 

I refer to your application dated 16 September 2016 in which you seek
access to documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the Act)
concerning the file “Citizenship Loss Board – AFP Participation”.

 

Upon consideration of your request, the AFP is of the view that your
request will take longer than 30 days to process.  Assessment of the
documents is now underway following consultation with relevant parties
however due to illness by the FOI Case officer this process has been
delayed, therefore it will not be possible to advise you of a decision by
16 October 2016.

 

Accordingly, pursuant to section 15AA of the Act, I seek your agreement to
extend the period to notify you of a decision to 15 November 2016.  It is
very likely the request will be finalised prior to this date, however,
your agreement to 30 days would be appreciated.

 

I would be grateful if you would advise this office in writing of your
agreement to the proposed extension of time. 

 

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

 

Regards,
