FOI/2022/021

 

Dear JS,

 

Thank you for your email dated 7 January 2022 received by the Department
of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (the Department), in which you made a
request to the Department under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the
FOI Act) in the following terms:

 

I request copies of any correspondence between Trent Twomey, the Pharmacy
Guild of Australia (including its Directors and Branches) and the Prime
Minister, the Prime Minister’s Office, the Minister  for Health and DPMC
between 1 October 2021 and 5 January 2022.

 

Timeframe for receiving your decision

 

We received your request on 7 January 2022 and the 30 day statutory period
for processing your request commenced from the day after that date. You
should therefore expect a decision from us by 7 February 2022. The period
of 30 days may be extended in certain circumstances. We will advise you if
there is any extension of time.

 

Charges

 

Agencies may decide that an applicant is liable to pay a charge in respect
of a request for access to documents. If the Department decides that you
are liable to pay a charge, we will send you a preliminary assessment of
the charge as soon as possible.

 

Publication of documents

 

Please note that information released under the FOI Act may later be
published online on our disclosure log at
[1]https://www.pmc.gov.au/government/depart...,
subject to certain exceptions. If you think you might wish to raise any
objections to the publication of any of the information which may be
released to you please contact us by email at [2][DPMC request email].  If you
do wish to object to the publication of information, you would need to
provide supporting reasons.

 

Exclusion of officers’ names and contact details

 

For documents that fall within scope of the request, it is the
Department’s policy to withhold:

•            any person’s signature;

•            the names and contact details of Australian Public Service
officers not in the Senior Executive Service (SES);

•            the mobile or direct numbers of SES officers;

•            the names and contact details of Ministerial staff at a level
below Chief of Staff.

 

The names and other details of SES officers will not be withheld unless
there is some reason for that information to be exempt from release. If
you require signatures, the names and contact details of non-SES officers
or Ministerial staff below the level of Chief of Staff, or the mobile or
direct numbers of SES officers please let us know at [3][DPMC request email] so
the decision-maker may consider; otherwise we will take it that you agree
to that information being excluded from the scope of your request (that
is, the information will be treated as irrelevant and redacted from any
documents for release).

 

We will write again when the Department has more information.  Further
information on FOI processing can be found at the website of the Office of
the Australian Information Commissioner

Dear Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet's handling of my FOI request 'Correspondence with Pharmacy Guild of Australia'.

In lieu of the 4,760 documents being searched and utilising Departmental resources, I would like to reduce the scope to include:
- Correspondence between Trent Twomey ([email address], [email address]) and DPMC and the Prime Minister between 1 November 2021 and 1 January 2022.

I believe this should sufficiently reduce the volume of emails that must be searched.

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,

JS

If you agree to this request for a 14 day extension of time, I ask that

FOI/2022/064

 

Dear JS

 

Thank you for your email dated 19 February 2022, received by the
Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (the Department), in which
you made a request to the Department under the Freedom of Information Act
1982 (the FOI Act) in the following terms:

 

Given that the documents do not exist, I would like to amend the scope of
my request to the following:

 

I request copies of any electronic correspondence between Pharmacy Guild
email addresses (@guild.org.au) and Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet
and Department of Health email addresses (@pmc.gov.au, @pm.gov.au and
@health.gov.au) between 1 November 2021 and 1 January 2022.

 

If the contents of these emails cannot be shared then I request a
spreadsheet of all emails with recipient, sender, subject lines and
date/time.

 

While we note that your email was received in response to a decision on
FOI/2022/021, you have advised that you seek to revise the scope of the
request rather than proceed with an internal review. We intend to accept
this as a new request and conduct fresh searches for documents. This new
request has been registered as FOI 2022/064.

 

We also note that part of your request seeks correspondence between the
Pharmacy Guild and the Department of Health, and therefore you may wish to
direct this to the Department of Health as a new separate FOI request.

 

Timeframe for receiving your decision

 

We received your revised request on 19 February 2022 and the 30 day
statutory period for processing your request commenced from the day after
that date. You should therefore expect a decision from us by 21 March
2022. The period of 30 days may be extended in certain circumstances under
the FOI Act. We will write to you regarding any extension of time that may
relate to your request.

 

Charges

 

Agencies may decide that an applicant is liable to pay a charge in respect
of a request for access to documents. If the Department decides that you
are liable to pay a charge, we will send you a preliminary assessment of
the charge as soon as possible.

 

Publication of documents

 

Please note that information released under the FOI Act may later be
published online on our disclosure log at
[1]https://www.pmc.gov.au/government/depart...,
subject to certain exceptions. If you think you might wish to raise any
objections to the publication of any of the information which may be
released to you please contact us by email at [2][DPMC request email].  If you
do wish to object to the publication of information, you would need to
provide supporting reasons.

 

Exclusion of officers’ names and contact details

 

For documents that fall within scope of the request, it is the
Department’s policy to withhold:

o any person’s signature;
o the names and contact details of Australian Public Service officers
not in the Senior Executive Service (SES);
o the mobile or direct numbers of SES officers;
o the names and contact details of Ministerial staff at a level below
Chief of Staff.

 

The names and other details of SES officers will not be withheld unless
there is some reason for that information to be exempt from release. If
you require signatures, the names and contact details of non-SES officers
or Ministerial staff below the level of Chief of Staff, or the mobile or
direct numbers of SES officers please let us know at [3][DPMC request email] so
the decision-maker may consider; otherwise we will take it that you agree
to that information being excluded from the scope of your request (that
is, the information will be treated as irrelevant and redacted from any

FOI/2022/064

 

Dear JS,

 

We write in relation to your request under the Freedom of Information Act
1982 (FOI Act) to the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet in the
following terms:

 

I request copies of any electronic correspondence between Pharmacy Guild
email addresses (@guild.org.au) and Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet
and Department of Health email addresses (@pmc.gov.au, @pm.gov.au and
@health.gov.au) between 1 November 2021 and 1 January 2022.

 

If the contents of these emails cannot be shared then I request a
spreadsheet of all emails with recipient, sender, subject lines and
date/time.

 

We are writing to you to advise that the request covers documents which:

o contain information concerning the business, commercial or financial
affairs of an organisation, or a person’s business or professional
affairs, and the Department is required to consult with the person or
organisation concerned (under section 27 of the FOI Act) before making
a decision on the release of the document; and
o contain another individual’s personal information, and the Department
is required to consult with that individual (under section 27A of the
FOI Act) before making a decision on the release of the document.

The consultation mechanism under section 27 applies when we believe the
person or organisation concerned may wish to contend that the requested
documents are exempt because their release would disclose trade secrets or
commercially valuable information or may adversely affect their business
or financial affairs.

The consultation mechanism under section 27A applies when we believe the
individual (or their representative) may wish to contend that the
requested documents are exempt for reasons of personal privacy.

We will take into account any comments we receive from the person or
organisation, but the final decision about whether to grant you access to
the document you requested rests with the Department.

Section 15(6) of the FOI Act provides for the extension of the processing
time by a further 30 days in order to allow the Department time to consult
with that organisation or person.

Accordingly, the period for processing the request has been extended by 30
days in order to allow our agency time to consult with that person or
organisation (section 15(6) of the FOI Act). You should therefore expect
to have a decision from us by 20 April 2022.

 

Yours sincerely
