Dear Ms Rossiter,

Thankyou for your email in regards to my request under the Freedom of Information Act 1982, seeking an Incident Detail Report and attached documents.

I respectfully disagree that my request can be linked to other requests in accordance with s 24(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth). My request and the others you refer to are not requests by the same person. This is a condition precedent for the application of this section of the act.

The Office of Australian Information Commissioner Guidelines state that the section is relevant: "two or more requests from the same applicant may be treated as a single request where the agency or minister is satisfied that the requests relate to substantially the same document or documents.” (See Guidelines 3.62)

You must have regard to these guidelines in performing a function or exercising a power under the FOI Act (s 93A(2)).

In addition you wrongly conclude that the requests relate to documents the subject matter of which is substantially the same. My request and other requests relate to incident reports involving different individuals, different types of events, and events at different times and places. The subject matter in each case is likely to be unique.

Your reliance on these grounds for any decision to refuse access for the practical refusal reason that processing the request would substantially and unreasonably divert the resources of the agency from its other operations is misplaced. You estimate that dealing with my request would take three hours and as such this would not substantially and unreasonably divert the resources of the agency from its other operations.

Based on this I would like to indicate that I will be declining to vary or revise my request further and I look forward to true determination of my application.

Regards,

Zoe Szwarcbord

When making the transfer you will need to quote the number of your request

related and could result in processing delays.

 

Please advise FOI when you have made the payment made by direct credit so
that we can contact the Finance area and they can issue a receipt. You
should also be aware that payments by direct credit are not processed in
real time. There is at least a one day delay between somebody paying money
into the department's account and notification of the payment via our bank
