Dear Mr Young

I refer to your freedom of information request sent to Screen Australia by
email on 15 September 2015 (copied below).

You have requested that Screen Australia provides you with the RSM Bird
Cameron review of Producer Offset (requested information). The requested
information is exempt information under section 37(1)(b) of the Freedom of
Information Act 1982 (FOI Act). The reason for this is that if the
requested information was disclosed a person could find out confidential
information about the enforcement and or administration of the Income
Taxation Assessment Act 1997. Accordingly access to the requested
information is not required to be given under section 11A(4) of the FOI
Act.

Yours sincerely

Jane Supit

Rights of Review

Internal review

1.         Pursuant to section 54 of the FOI Act, you have the right to
apply for an internal review of my decision insofar as it refuses access
to Document 14.  If you make an application for internal review, it will
be conducted by an officer of Screen Australia (not myself as the original
decision maker) who will make a fresh decision on the merits of the case.

2.         You must apply in writing for an internal review of the
decision within 30 days after the day on which this decision is received
by you (or any longer period which we agree to). 

3.         No particular form is required to apply for internal review
although it is desirable to set out in the application the grounds on
which you consider that the decision should be reviewed.

4.         Application for an internal review of the decision should be
addressed to my attention.  I will then ensure the review is conducted by
the appropriate person.

 

External review - the Information Commissioner

5.         Either following, or as an alternative to, internal review, you
may seek a review of my decision by the Australian Information
Commissioner (AIC) in accordance with paragraph 25 or 26 below. The Office
of the AIC can be contacted by email at [7][email address], or by
telephone on 1300 363 992. Requests to the AIC for review must be made in
writing.  The AIC’s addresses are GPO Box 2999, Canberra ACT 2601, or GPO
Box 5218, Sydney NSW 2001.

6.         If you make an application for internal review and either the
original decision to refuse access is confirmed, or you are not notified
of a decision within 30 days of Screen Australia’s receipt of the
application (or such longer period as the AIC may grant Screen Australia),
you will be entitled to make an application within a further 60 days to
the AIC for a review of the original decision.

7.         You are also entitled to apply to the AIC for a review of my
decision without applying for an internal review.  This application must
be made to the AIC within 60 days of receiving notice of my decision.

8.         A party to a review to the AIC may appeal to the Federal Court
of Australia, on a question of law, from a decision of the AIC.

9.         If the AIC confirms the original decision, or declines to
review your case because it is satisfied that the interests of the
administration of the FOI Act make it desirable that the decision be
considered by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT), you may apply to
the AAT (see below) for review of the decision.

The Administrative Appeals Tribunal

10.      The AAT is a completely independent review body with the power to
make a fresh decision in response to your request.

11.      Your application to the AAT should be accompanied by an
application fee (currently $861) unless you are granted legal aid or you
come within an exempt category of persons.  The AAT Registrar or Deputy
Registrar may waive the fee on the ground that its payment would impose
financial hardship on you.  The fee may be refunded where you are
successful.  The Tribunal cannot award costs either in your favour or
against you, although it may in some circumstances recommend payment by
the Attorney-General of some or all of your costs. 

12.      Further information is available from the AAT Registry, telephone
1300 366 700.

 

Complaints to the Commonwealth Ombudsman

13.      You may complain to the Ombudsman concerning action taken by
Screen Australia in the exercise of powers or the performance of functions
under the FOI Act. There is no fee for making a complaint. The Ombudsman
will make a completely independent assessment of your complaint.

14.      You may complain to the Ombudsman either orally or in writing.
The Ombudsman’s address is:

Commonwealth Ombudsman
GPO Box 442
Canberra ACT 2601

Telephone: 1300 362 072

15.      You may wish to consult with the Ombudsman’s office as to whether
it is preferable to seek internal review prior to seeking the assistance
of the Ombudsman.

Dear Screen Australia,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Screen Australia's handling of my FOI request 'Contents of RSM Bird Cameron review of Producer Offset'.

The decision reasons given state that the entire review is exempt from release as it would reveal secret taxation information, however it's surely possible to release an edited document as per section 26 of the FOI Act.

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,

Cail Young
