Extension of time application by the Australian Taxation Office

Dear Mr Lloyd

 

I write to advise that on 30 April 2020 the Office of the Australian
Information Commissioner (the OAIC) received an application from the
Australian Taxation Officer (the ATO) for an extension of time, to
process your FOI request.

 

The ATO has applied for an extension of time under s 15AB of the Freedom
of Information Act 1982 (Cth) because your request is considered to be
voluminous and complex.

 

The ATO has advised the OAIC that:

 

o you previously agreed to an extension of time under s 15AA of the FOI
Act  with the ATO, as the scope of the request required searches
across email records covering a period of 7 years and three months,
and the potential voluminous nature of the documents
o the email archives from which emails responsive to the request would
have to be identified and sourced are stored in 87 outlook archive
folders, accessible only to a limited number of ATO officers. They
cannot be searched as one group in one search, but must be
individually searched
o the ATO has conducted a sample search of 10 folders. Based on the
results of that sampling process, a section 24AB request consultation
notice has been sent to you
o further searches for documents would then need to be made by the
relevant officers, who have many significant, high priority demands on
their time in the current circumstances in particular, and
o the ATO has informed you that it would make this application for an
extension of time to the OAIC.

 

The ATO has requested an extension to 2 June 2020. 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 5 May 2020. If I do not
hear from you by this date, I will proceed to make a decision on the basis
of the information provided to me by the ATO.

 

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 queries, please contact me on the details below.

 

Kind regards

Dear Australian Taxation Office,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Australian Taxation Office's handling of my FOI request 'Emails between Commissioner Jordan and KPMG'.

This request is now long-overdue, and you have not provided a response by the deadline provided by OAIC (their ref RQ20/01571) which was 2 June 2020.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/e...

Yours faithfully,

John Lloyd

Dear Mr Lloyd,

 

I refer to your FOI request dated 8 March 2020.

 

On 30 April 2020, Lisa Carley, Principal Lawyer, issued you a notice of
intention to refuse your FOI request as a ‘practical refusal reason’
existed under s 24AA(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act).

 

The notice was issued under s24AB(2) of the FOI Act and required you to
complete one of the following within 14 days of receiving the notice –

 

a. Withdraw the request

b. Make a revised request, or

c. Indicate that you do not wish to revise the request.

 

I note on 7 May 2020, the OAIC approved an extension of time request made
by the ATO under 15AB of the FOI Act.

 

Notwithstanding, the ATO did not receive a response to the 24AB notice
issued to you on 30 April 2020 and therefore your request was taken to be
withdrawn pursuant to s24AB(6) of the FOI Act.

 

A FOI request that is taken to be withdrawn under 24AB(6) of the FOI Act
is not an ‘access refusal’ decision, as defined by 52A of the FOI Act, and
is therefore not reviewable either internally by the ATO or by the OAIC.

 

Regards,

FOI Team

Dear Australian Taxation Office,

I request all emails and replies sent during his tenure as Commissioner from Christopher Jordan's individual ATO email address and any email address with a KPMG domain.

I would expect an organisation like the ATO has adequate capability to search through its own email systems with minimal effort.

All modern email systems provide functionality to search for specific terms, including domain names.

Yours faithfully,

John Lloyd

Dear R Rutten,

Thank you for your letter.

I confirm I am happy to allow the requested extension. I have considered your suggested revisions and confirm the following revision of scope:

1. Limit time period to the first 12 months of the Commissioner's tenure
2. Exclude names and contact details of third parties
3. Exclude information relating to the tax affairs of third parties
4. Limit copies of email chains to the last chain containing all proceeding emails
5. Exclude attachments to emails, except where the subject or body of the containing email does not broadly describe the content of any attachments

I trust this will allow you to process my request more efficiently.

Sincerely
John Lloyd
