Dear To

 

The Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (the department)
has received your Freedom of Information request of 4 December 2020
(attached).

 

This correspondence is to acknowledge receipt of your request. Currently a
decision is due to you by 3 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 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’
(i.e. 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

you please specify.

 

Request for extension of time

 

I note that the department shuts down from 25 December 2020 to 4 January
2021.

 

To assist in the processing your request, we seek your agreement to a 10
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 13 January 2021.

Dear Freedom of Information,

The document I referred to is the FOI release (combined documents) with "dates of third-party (public) enquiries/concerns/allegations regarding conflicts of interests in the incubator support initiative" (each a redacted document with only the dates as requested).

Please release the document/documents by internal review, or if you intend to misinterpret my request again, then make this a new FOI request to save for time.

Yours faithfully,

To Nguyen
