Delivered

Dear Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Commission,

Can I please have a copy of the current FOI Delegations, and any related directions issued in respect of FOI.

I believe this information could be considered "operational information" so I therefore request release under the IPS, or under Administrative Access.

Yours faithfully,

Ben Fairless

Dear Mr Fairless,

 

Thank you for your email of 2 November 2016, seeking access under the
Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the FOI Act) to the following:

 

Can I please have a copy of the current FOI Delegations, and any related
directions issued in respect of FOI.

 

Your request has been assigned reference number 2016/10810 and you are
asked to cite that number in any communication you have with Comcare
concerning the request. Information on processing of your request is set
out below.

 

Timeframe for receiving your decision

 

The statutory timeframe for processing your request is 30 days from the
date on which it was received by Comcare, which makes the due date for the
decision on your request is 2 December 2016.

 

This timeframe may be extended where:

 

a)            charges are levied as prescribed by the Freedom of
Information (Fees and Charges) Regulations 1982 (the FOI Regulations)(see
charges below);

b)            consultation with third parties is necessary (see
consultation with third parties below);

c)            by agreement from you, under section 15AA of the FOI Act; or

d)            by approval of the Information Commissioner, under section
15AB of the FOI Act.

 

Disclosure Log

 

Please note that information released under FOI Act may be published in a
disclosure log on the Comcare’s website. Section 11C of the FOI Act
requires this publication, however it is subject to certain exceptions,
including where publication of personal, business, professional or
commercial information would be unreasonable.

 

Exclusion of department employee details

 

Where the full name and contact details of staff members are included in
the scope of a request, this may add

to processing time and applicable charges as it may be necessary to
consider whether the details are exempt under the FOI Act. On this basis,
unless you tell us otherwise, we will assume that these details are out of
scope of your request and they will be redacted under section 22 of the
FOI Act.

 

Consultation with third parties

 

The FOI Act requires Comcare to undertake consultation prior to making any
decision to grant access to documents (subject to exemptions) that
contain:

 

•             information that originated with, or was received from, a
State or an authority of a State;

•             information that originated with, or was received from, a
foreign government, an authority of a foreign government or an
international organisation;

•             information concerning a person's business or commercial
affairs, or the business, commercial or financial affairs of an
organisation or undertaking; or

•             personal information about a person (including a deceased
person).

 

You will be advised as soon as possible if external consultation is
required.

 

Charges

 

The department will advise you if a charge is payable to process your
request. No charge is payable for providing a person with their own
personal information. 

 

Should you require clarification of any of the matters discussed in this
email, or have any queries throughout the process, please contact me by
