Good afternoon Lucy,

 

I refer to your email attached. Unfortunately, in its current form your
request is not considered valid under section 15(2)(b) [Requests for
access] of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) as you have not
provided such specific information concerning the documents as is
reasonably necessary to enable a responsible officer of the agency to
identify them. 

Accordingly, prior to the Department accepting your request, I seek
clarification as to the documents you wish to obtain. In particular, I
seek clarification as to the meaning of “over 30 days” as this could be
taken to mean decisions made outside the statutory timeframe or requests
received over 30 days ago for example prior to 4 May 2021. Additionally,
please clarify your meaning of the term requests does this only refer to
requests which were provided a formal decision.

I encourage you to contact me so I can assist you in moving forward with
your inquiry.  

Kind regards,
