Dear Mr Smith

 

Freedom of Information Request FOI20/174

               

I refer to your request under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI
Act) for access to documents.

 

The three most recent emails, as at the time and date this request is
received; between your department and any Ministerial adviser in the
Minister's parliamentary office.

 

If you disagree with this interpretation of your request, please let me
know in writing as soon as possible.

 

The department received your request on 1 October 2020 and the 30 day
statutory period for processing your request commenced from the day after
that date. You should therefore expect a decision from us by 2 November
2020. However, the period of 30 days may be extended if the department
needs to consult third parties or for other reasons. We will advise you if
this happens.

 

Where the documents within the scope of an FOI request include the
personal information of junior officers of the department or other
government authorities, the department’s practice is to not disclose
that information (e.g., names, contact details). The names of senior
officers will generally be disclosed. In addition, duplicates and
incomplete email chains within the scope of the FOI request will be
excluded.

 

Please note that, with some exceptions (such as personal information),
documents released under the FOI Act may later be published online on the
department’s disclosure log

If you have any questions, please contact me by telephone on (02) 6141
6666 or by email [2][AGD request email].

 

Yours sincerely

Euphrasia

FOI Case Officer

Dear FOI Requests,

I would like to revise my request to read:

'any three emails, sent between 4pm and 5pm AEST on the date of this request; between the department and a ministerial adviser.'

That way it will not be necessary to undertake the effort of identifying which three are the 'most recent' re: the time of the request.

Yours sincerely,

John Smith
