Dear Department of Industry, Innovation and Science,

I would like to request the following under the Freedom of Information Act.

Please provide a document with the number of incubator support initiative (new and existing incubator) grant applications that were approved from June - December 2018 and that were co-funded by a Commonwealth grant source.

There will only be several approved applications approved within the period and all applications have a funding breakdown that comes with the application form.

Yours faithfully,

Lynn Los

Dear Lynn

 

The Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (the department)
has received your Freedom of Information request of 7 December 2020
(attached).

 

This correspondence is to acknowledge receipt of your request. Currently a
decision is due to you by 6 January 2021. However, this timeline may be
effected by the requirement to undertake consultation with affected third
parties or if the department determines you are liable to pay a charge in
relation to your request. You will be notified by the Minister’s Office or
the department if charges are liable or if third party consultation is
required.

 

Personal information

 

For documents that fall within the scope of the request, it is the
practice of the department to withhold:

 

·       the names, signatures and contact details of junior staff; That
is:

o   Commonwealth staff who are not in the Senior Executive Service (SES);
and

o   Ministerial staff below the level of Chief of Staff; and

·       the mobile phone numbers of SES officers.

 

The names and other details of SES officers will be released unless the
information is exempt from disclosure.

 

Confirmation from you that you are not seeking ‘personal information’ (ie.
the names and contact details of any individuals, or any information that
could reasonably identify an individual) may enable a more timely and cost
effective processing of your request.

 

Therefore, could you please clarify if you a seeking access to personal
information in the documents relating to:

·       third parties; and

·       Commonwealth staff.

 

If you are not seeking access to any personal information, you can simply

day extension under section 15AA of the FOI Act. If you agree to this
extension, the department will notify the Office of the Australian
Information Commissioner of the extension of time, and the decision on
your request would then be due to you on or before 16 January 2021.

Dear Department of Industry, Innovation and Science,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Department of Industry, Innovation and Science's handling of my FOI request 'Commonwealth co-funding of Incubator Support Initiative'.

I requested a document with a number of grant applications with Commonwealth co-funding that can be produced as a report under section 17 of the FOI Act.

The data can be retrieved from the application forms' funding breakdowns.

There are only several approved applications within the timespan specified that can be processed in a spreadsheet.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/c...

Yours faithfully,

Lynn Los
