File Number:          OBJ2020/30762 

Dear Mohammad

Acknowledgement of Freedom of Information Access request

I refer to your correspondence received on 28 September 2020 seeking
access to documents held by the Department of Home Affairs (the
Department) under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the FOI Act).

Scope of request

You have requested access to the following:

ANZSCO CODE 232511 Subclass 190, 491 (family sponsored) in NSW, NT, SA,
VIC From 2017 to 2020 :
-How many EOI has been received including minimum & maximum points; -How
many invitations have been given and what were the minimum and maximum
points including any Australian and overseas employment points;
- How many visas are granted and still pending.

We will progress part of the scope: ANZSCO CODE 232511 Subclass 190, 491
(family sponsored) in NSW, NT, SA, VIC From 2017 to 2020. How many visas
are granted (financial years 2017 – 2020) and still pending as of 28
September 2020.

Your request was received by the Department on 28 September 2020 and has
been allocated FOI request number FA 20/09/01234. Please include your FOI
request number in all correspondence with the Freedom of Information
Section.

Scope: ANZSCO CODE 232511 Subclass 190, 491 (family sponsored) in NSW, NT,
SA, VIC From 2017 to 2020 :
-How many EOI has been received including minimum & maximum points; -How
many invitations have been given and what were the minimum and maximum
points including any Australian and overseas employment points.

 

As you may be aware, earlier this year the Department launched a dashboard
on its SkillSelect website to provide visa Expression of Interest (EOI)
statistics.  The Department has undertaken a review of the SkillSelect
Dashboard to ensure that there is no reasonable chance of an individual
being re-identified from the EOI statistics. 

 

The dashboard is now available again and can be accessed via the
Department’s SkillSelect [1]web page and comprises a comprehensive library
of historic and current statistics in relation to Expressions of Interest
(EOIs).  The dashboard is a one-stop shop for SkillSelect EOI statistics
and is freely available on demand, without any need to formally request
the statistics and wait for such a request to be processed. Bypassing the
FOI process will significantly reduce delays in obtaining the same
information as has previously been provided in response to FOI requests.

 

As this information is now publically available, you may wish to withdraw
you FOI request.  If you do not advise the Department that you wish to
continue with this FOI request within 5 days of this email, your request
will be taken to have been withdrawn. 

 

Privacy

 

The Department’s handling of personal information is regulated by the
Privacy Act 1988 (the Privacy Act).  Guidance published by the Office of
the Australian Information Commissioner is that information will be
de-identified, and therefore not subject to the protections in the Privacy
Act, where the risk of an individual being re-identified is very low. 
De-identification is not a fixed state. Rather, re-identification risks
and their controls require ongoing monitoring and review.

 

The Department’s view is that the current controls are appropriate to
reduce the risk that an individual can be re-identified from the
statistics accessible from the SkillSelect Dashboard to very low.

Timeframe for receiving your decision

 

The statutory timeframe for processing a request is 30 days from the date
upon which your application was received by the Department.

 

Your review rights in relation to your request are available on the
website of the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner [2]here.

Exclusion of staff details

 

The Department’s policy is to exclude the personal details of staff not in
the Senior Executive Service (SES), as well as the direct contact details
of SES staff, contained in documents that fall within scope of an FOI
request. If you require personal details of non-SES officers, or direct
contact details of SES staff, please inform us so the decision maker may
consider your request. Otherwise we will take it that you agree to that
information being excluded from the scope of your request.

 

Duplicate documents

 

If the FOI decision-maker deems a document to be a duplicate, they will
not assess those pages as part of your FOI request. This means that if a
there is a decision to release the document to you, you will receive only
one copy, even if multiple copies of that document exists.

Publication of document

 

Where documents are released to you in response to your request, the
Department may be required to publish these documents on its website
within 10 working days in accordance with section 11C of the FOI Act.
Publication will not be required where the documents contain personal or
business affairs information.
