Dear Mr Fairless,

 

Re - Freedom of Information Request: No. 2018/19-009

I refer to your request to the National Health and Medical Research
Council (NHMRC) under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the FOI Act)
seeking documents related to NHMRC Freedom of Information (FOI) process

1.     All current policies, procedures, business rules, or other internal
documents created by NHMRC which detail how Freedom of Information
Requests are processed, by whom, and how they are to be treated.

2.    Documents which show the training provided to NHMRC decision makers
and employees within the Freedom of Information team at NHMRC.

3.    Internal correspondence in relation to Freedom of Information
requests made using the Right to Know service.

other Learning and Development records for employees in the Freedom of
Information team and for all decision makers of the NHMRC.

5.    A copy of the Authorisation made by the principal officer of the
agency under section 23 of the Freedom of Information Act 1982.

 

Timeframe for receiving your decision

The statutory timeframe for processing a request is 30 days, starting from
the day after the day on which your application was received by NHMRC. 
Therefore, the due date for a decision on your request is 11 February
2019.

This timeframe may be extended where: 

·            charges are levied as prescribed by the Freedom of
Information (Fees and Charges) Regulations 1982 (the FOI Regulations)(see
charges below);

·            consultation with third parties is necessary (see
consultation with third parties below). 

Charges

Agencies may decide that an applicant is liable to pay a charge in respect
of a request for access to documents. These charges are set by the FOI
Regulations and are for search and retrieval of documents, decision making
and provision of access (for example, copying and postage). 

If NHMRC decides to charge you in respect of this FOI request, we will
send you a preliminary assessment of the charges as soon as possible
following retrieval of any documents that may be relevant to your request.

Consultation with third parties

NHMRC may be required under the FOI Act to consult other parties (third
parties) where information relating to third parties arises in documents
sought by your request.  The FOI Act prescribes a further 30 days
processing time for NHMRC to undertake this consultation. You will be
advised as soon as possible of any requirement to consult with a third
party.

Disclosure Log

s 11C of the FOI Act requires agencies to disclose documents released
under the FOI Act in a disclosure log, which is made publicly available.  
There are exceptions to this requirement, such as where release of the
documents or parts of them would involve the unreasonable disclosure of
your or another person’s personal or business information.   You may
choose to express a view on this issue and to identify personal or
business information that in your view would be unreasonable to publish. 
However, you should be aware that s 11C of the FOI Act embodies a
pro-disclosure policy which agencies are required to follow, subject to
any exceptions provided for under the FOI Act.

 

Kind Regards,
Jess
