Attn INFORMATION.ACCESS,

The internal review decision was due to be provided on 13 May, but not such decision has been sent to me.

That means a deemed affirmation decision has been made.

DVA is still obligated by the FOI Act to provide an IR decision to substitute the deemed affirmation.

Good morning Ms Pane,

 

I refer to your email of 10 June 2022, in which you advised an internal
review decision (ref: LEX 49113) was due to be provided on 13 May 2022,
but no decision has been sent to you.

 

A decision on internal review was made on 11 May 2022 and released to you
on 12 May 2022. As such, I can confirm that this decision was made within
the statutory timeframe and has not deemed. I have re-attached the
decision for you.

 

Please let me know if you have any difficulties accessing the documents.

 

Kind regards,
