Thank you for contacting the Freedom of Information (FOI) team in Services
Australia (the Agency).


This email acknowledges your correspondence and provides some general
information in relation to FOI.



The Agency will advise you if a charge is payable to process your request
and the amount of any such charge as soon as practicable. No charge is
payable for providing a person with their own personal information.


Your address

The FOI Act requires you to provide us with an address which we can send
notices to. We will send correspondence and notices to your email address.
Please advise us as soon as possible if you wish correspondence to be sent
to another address or if your email address changes.


Administrative release of documents

The Agency has administrative access arrangements ('the arrangements') for
the release of certain documents without the need for a formal FOI
request. Unless you advise us otherwise, in processing your request we may
provide you with documents under these arrangements where appropriate and
any parts of your FOI request that are addressed by documents released
under the arrangements will be considered to be withdrawn. The
arrangements do not extend to information or materials of third parties.
You will be notified when documents are released to you under the


Exclusion of staff details

The Agency is working towards ensuring all staff have a choice about
whether they provide their full name, personal logon identifiers and
direct contact details in response to FOI requests. Where such details are
included in documents they will be redacted. If you request staff details
as part of your FOI application, this may add to processing time and
applicable charges as it will be necessary to consider whether these
details are exempt under the FOI Act.
On this basis, unless you tell us otherwise, we will assume these details
are out of scope of your request and they will be redacted under section
22 of the FOI Act.
