Dear Ange

 

I refer to your FOI request of 4 December 2020 to the Department of
Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (the department).  

 

Notice of Consultation

 

Your request covers documents that contain information about the business
affairs of certain organisations.

 

Under section 27 of the FOI Act where a request is made for a document
containing information about the business affairs of an organisation
(section 27) and it appears the organisation may reasonably wish to
contend that the information is exempt or conditionally exempt, the
department must give the organisation a reasonable opportunity to make a
submission in support of the contention.

 

Under section 27 of the FOI Act the department must have regard to any
submissions made by the organisation before making a decision to give
access to the document.

 

Given that consultation with a third party is required, the statutory
timeframe for processing your FOI request is extended by 30 days under
subsection 15(6) of the FOI Act.
