Timeframe for receiving your decision

 

We received your request on 5 June 2015 and the 30 day statutory period
for processing your request commenced from the day after that date. A
decision on access to the documents is therefore due on 5 July 2015. As
this date falls on a weekend, you should expect to receive notification of
a decision from us by the next available business day being Monday,
6 July 2015. The period of 30 days may be extended in certain
circumstances. We will advise you if there is any extension of time.

 

Charges

 

Agencies may decide that an applicant is liable to pay a charge in respect
of a request for access to documents. If the Department decides that you
are liable to pay a charge, we will send you a preliminary assessment of
the charge as soon as possible.

 

Publication of documents

 

Please note that information released under the FOI Act may later be
published online on our disclosure log at
[1]http://www.dpmc.gov.au/pmc/accountabilit...,
subject to certain exceptions. If you think you might wish to raise any
objections to the publication of any of the information which may be
released to you please contact us by email at [2][DPMC request email].  If you
do wish to object to the publication of information, you would need to
provide supporting reasons.

 

Exclusion of officers’ names and contact details

 

It is the Department’s policy to withhold any person’s signature and the
names and contact details of officers not in the Senior Executive Service
(SES) as well as the mobile or direct numbers of SES officers within the
Department and other agencies contained within documents that fall within
scope of the request. The names and other details of departmental or
agency SES officers will not be withheld unless there is some reason for
that information to be exempt from release. If you require signatures, the
names and contact details of non-SES officers or the mobile or direct
numbers of SES officers please let us know at [3][DPMC request email] so the
decision-maker may consider; otherwise we will take it that you agree to
that information being excluded from the scope of your request.

 

We will write again when the Department has more information.  Further
information on FOI processing can be found at the website of the Office of
the Australian Information Commissioner at
