Documents created in managing inquiry to the Entrepreneurs' Programme

The request was successful.

Dear Department of Industry, Innovation and Science,

Please provide all documents created as a result of my inquiry to Erin Higuchi on 22 September 2020 at 3:14 PM regarding the Department's stance on whether it condones regional incubator (ISI grant program) facilitators engaging in private incubator business (an inquiry which the Department has failed to address to date).

This should also include my inquiry to Erin, all email correspondence from Erin to the Entrepreneurs' Programme line area with regard to the matter, and all internal correspondence within the line area/department in managing my inquiry.

Kind regards,

Denis Jakota

Extension of time application by the Department of Industry, Science,
Energy and Resources

Dear Mr Jakota

 

I write to advise that on 25 January 2021 the Office of the Australian
Information Commissioner (the OAIC) received an application from the
Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (the Department)
for an extension of time, to process your FOI request.

 

The Department has applied for an extension of time under s 15AC of the
Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth) because it has been unable to
finalise your request within the initial decision period.

 

The Department has advised the OAIC that:

 

o Delays have been encountered in processing your FOI request as the
Department has received multiple FOI requests relating to the same
subject matter. Due to the large volume of these requests, the
Department advises it has faced unavoidable delays in processing this
request.

 

o The Department was impacted by limited staff availability over the
Christmas/New Year shutdown period.

 

o The Department have advised significant progress has been made and it
is confident a decision is made within the requested extension.

 

The Department has requested an extension to 24 February 2021. I will
take any comments you may have to make into account when deciding the
application.

 

Please respond to this email by close of business 29 January 2021. If I do
not hear from you by this date, the decision maker will make a decision on
the basis of the information provided to me by the Department.

 

You will be notified of the decision once the matter has been finalised.

 

Further information about extension of time requests may be found on our
website at [2]Extensions of time.

If you have any questions about this letter, please contact me on 02 9284
9625 or via email [3][email address]. In all
correspondence please include OAIC reference number at the top of this
letter.

Kind regards
