Dear To

 

I refer to your FOI request of 4 December 2020 (attached) to the
Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (the department).

 

Your request has been deemed refused, as the department has not provided
you a decision within the statutory timeframe.

 

The department still intends to issue you a decision in relation to your
FOI request. At this time, I am unable to provide you with an expected
date of decision.

 

I will keep you updated as the matter progresses.
