Dear Mr Gothe-Snape,

 

Freedom of Information Request – FOI 17/74

Thank you for your email to the Department of Finance (Finance) requesting
access to the following under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI
Act).

 

Can you please provide the brief on 'Immigration ‐ Immigration Portfolio
Issues' prepared as part of Additional Estimates 2016/17, mentioned in the
index provided here:

The statutory period for processing your request commences from the day
after Finance received your request. Your request was received by Finance
on 15 May 2017. The processing period may be extended if we need to
consult third parties, impose a charge or for other reasons. We will
advise you if this happens.

 

Liability to pay a charge

You will be notified of any charges in relation to your request as soon as
possible, before we process any requested documents or impose a final
charge.

 

Publication

As required by the FOI Act, any documents provided to you under the FOI
Act will be published on our [2]disclosure log, unless an exemption
applies or the documents are characterised as containing personal
information. Documents will be published within one working day after they
are released to you.

 

Policy to exclude junior officer contact details

Finance has adopted a policy to generally exclude from any documents
released under FOI, the names and contact details of junior staff (non-SES
officers) and staff employed under the Members of Parliament (Staff) Act
1984 (adviser level and below). Finance’s preference is to reach agreement
with FOI applicants to exclude these details from the scope of the
request. Where there is no objection, the names and contact details of
junior officers are redacted under section 22 of the FOI Act, on the basis
that these details are irrelevant to the request.

 

Please contact the FOI Team on the below contact details if you wish to
discuss your request.

 

Kind regards,

FOI Officer

Our reference: RQ17/01184

Agency reference: FOI 17/74

Mr Jackson Gothe-Snape

By email: [FOI #3522 email]

Dear Mr Gothe-Snape

Extension of time under s 15AB

On 14 June 2017, the Department of Finance (the Department) applied for
further time to make a decision on your FOI request of 15 May 2017.

This application was on the basis that the processing period is
insufficient to deal adequately with your request, because it is complex.

I have decided to grant the Department an extension of time to process
your request to 28 June 2017. This decision has been made under s 15AB(2)
of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth).

By granting further time it is anticipated that the Department will
provide a well-reasoned and better managed decision.

Contact

If you have any questions regarding this email please contact me on 02
9284 9745 or via email [email address]. Please quote OAIC
reference number RQ17/01184 in all correspondence.

Yours sincerely
