Dear Employment - FOI,

Thank you for the prompt clarification.

You noted that my request was dated 12 August 2014. I respectfully submit that my request was dated 8 September 2014. Can you please clarify whether there were any documents created within the date range 12 August 2014 and 7 September 2014? I fear the uncertainty around the date of the request may have resulted in the unintentional exclusion of some documents.

Yours sincerely,

Jackson Gothe-Snape

Good afternoon Mr Gothe-Snape

I refer to your below email in which you have enquired whether the department is able to provide only the documents from July 2014, or whether you should lodge another FOI request.

It is open to you to revise your request such that it covers only those documents from July 2014 to the date of your request (8 September 2014). In the circumstances of such a revision we will not require you to lodge a new request under the FOI Act.

Should you choose to revise your request in this manner, the department will proceed to process your request which may include preparing a revised assessment of any applicable charges and consulting with any relevant third parties prior to making a decision regarding access to the relevant documents in accordance with the provisions of the FOI Act.

If you would like to make such a revision to your request, please let us know.

Kind regards
