Dear Skeeve Stevens,

 

Freedom of Information Request FOI 16/130

 

I refer to your request under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI
Act) for access to documents relating to the Data Retention Implementation
Plan for: Real World Technology Solutions Pty Ltd. I have taken your
request to be for:

 

“copies of any correspondence with the department in relation to funding
requests for the Data Retention Implementation Plan for: Real World
Technology Solutions Pty Ltd.

 

Any supporting documents which resulted in recommendation or support for
public funding to Real World Technology Solutions Pty Ltd under the Data
Retention Grants Funding Programme are also requested.” 

 

Can you please confirm by COB Tuesday 13 September 2016 that this is the
correct interpretation of your request.

 

We received your request on 6 September 2016 and the 30 day statutory
period for processing your request commenced from the day after that date.
You should therefore expect a decision from us by 7 October 2016.  The
period of 30 days may be extended if we need to consult third parties or
for other reasons. We will advise you if this happens.

 

It is the usual practice of the department to not disclose the names and
contact details of junior officers of the department and other government
agencies, where that personal information is contained in documents within
the scope of a request.  The names and contact details of senior officers
will generally be disclosed.  We will take it that you agree to the
removal of junior officers’ personal information unless you advise that
you would like us to consider releasing that information as part of the
documents you have requested.

 

Please note that information released under the FOI Act may later be
published online on our disclosure log
http://www.ag.gov.au/RightsAndProtection...,
subject to certain exceptions. (For example, personal information will not
be published where this would be unreasonable.)

 

We will contact you using the email address you provided. Please advise if
you would prefer us to use an alternative means of contact.

If you have any questions, please contact the FOI case officer by
telephone on (02) 6141 6666 or by email [1][AGD request email].

 

Yours sincerely,
