Dear Mr Hirsch,

               

YOUR FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST

 

I refer to your application dated 26 October 2018, in which you seek
access to documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the Act) as
follows:

 

“I request the Internal Audit report into People Smuggling dated December
2012.”

 

Information considered irrelevant to the scope of your request

 

The AFP, in its management of FOI requests, excludes the following
information on the basis that is irrelevant to the scope of a request:

 

-      Names of AFP members, other than the Senior Executive.

-      Direct telephone numbers, signatures and mobile telephone numbers
of AFP members.

-      Duplicate documents, including duplicate emails.  The AFP will only
provide emails where they form a final email chain and the
authors/recipients are contained within the final email. 

-      Information that is publicly available, for example, newspaper
articles, online publications including information available on the AFP
Information Publication Scheme and the AFP disclosure log.

 

If you object to the AFP excluding any of the above information, please
advise this office within seven days of receipt of this letter.

 

Disclosure of your Identity

 

In addition, should the AFP be required to consult with third parties in
accordance with the sections 26A (Commonwealth/State information), 27
(business affairs) and 27A (personal information) of the Act, do you have
any objections to those parties/organisations knowing your identity for
the purposes of the consultation?  If we do not receive your consent or do
not receive a response, we will not disclosure your identity to third
parties.

 

Information Publication Scheme

 

Please be advised that in accordance with section 8(2) of the Act, an
agency is required to publish information on their website following the
notification of a decision in respect of a freedom of information
request.  The requirement to publish information released under FOI
reinforces the objectives of the FOI Act to promote a pro-disclosure
culture across government and to increase recognition that information
held by government is a national resource.  Exceptions to the requirement
to publish information apply to personal information.  Accordingly, I
advise that with respect to your FOI request, the AFP will not publish the
eventual decision.

 

Timeframe

 

Your request was received by this agency on 26 October 2018, and the 30
day statutory period for processing your request commenced from that date.

 

Charges

 

You will be notified of any charges in accordance with the Freedom of
Information (Fees and Charges) Regulations, should they apply, in relation
to your request as soon as practicable. 

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Asher

 

Your Freedom of Information Request

 

I refer to your application dated 26 October 2018 in which you sought
access to documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the Act)
regarding the Internal Audit report into people smuggling dated December
2012.

 

Upon consideration of your request, the AFP is of the view that your
request will take longer than 30 days to process.  The delay is
regrettable, however, further time is required to assess the report,
therefore it will not be possible to advise you of a decision by 25
November 2018.

 

Accordingly, pursuant to section 15AA of the Act, I seek your agreement to
extend the period to notify you of a decision to 21 December 2018.  It is
anticipated that the request will be finalised prior to Christmas
therefore I seek an extension of 26 days rather than 30 days as provided
by the Act.

 

I would be grateful if you would advise this office in writing of your
agreement to the proposed extension of time. 

 

If you have any queries in relation to this matter, please do not hesitate
to contact this office.

 

Yours sincerely,
