myGov Code Generator app: source code and technical documentation

The request was refused by Services Australia.

Dear Services Australia,

I request the following information under the Freedom of Information Act 1982:

(1). Source code of the myGov Code Generator iOS and Android apps, including build scripts, manifests, software license terms, and media assets (icons, audio files, etc).

(2). Technical documentation describing the operation of the myGov Code Generator app, such as design documents, architecture diagrams, API documentation, security assessments, technical presentation slides, and similar documents.

If it assists in the expeditious processing of my request, source code may be delivered as a "snapshot" or export of source repositories, in ZIP, "tarball" or similar format. However, the full development history is preferred.

Yours faithfully,

Fraser Tweedale

Services Australia

Dear Mr Tweedale

 

Please find attached correspondence in relation to your request under the
Freedom of Information Act 1982.

 

Request for an extension of the timeframe to process your request

 

Due to the unprecedented demand on Services Australia to support the
delivery of the Government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the FOI
team has been redeployed to assist with the processing of the COVID-19
Disaster Recovery Payment.

 

Accordingly, the agency is unlikely to be in a position to provide you
with a decision by the current due date of 12 August 2021. On this basis I
respectfully request an additional 30 day extension of time to process
your request.

 

The effect of this extension of time would mean a decision would be due on
13 September 2021. If however, we are able to process your request and
provide you with a decision before this date we will do so.

Could you please respond to this email by close of business Wednesday, 21
July 2021 by using the reply function in the email and stating “I Agree”,
to confirm that you accept the extension of time.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we process your request.

Yours sincerely,

FOI Registration Officer

Dear FOI Registration Officer,

Thank you for the acknowledgement of receipt of my request. The attachment (which is of letter form) and the main body of the email contain conflicting information. Specifically, the attachment did not request an extension of time. As a result, I did not notice your request for extension of time until this day.

I agree to your request for an extension of time.

Yours sincerely,

Fraser Tweedale

FOI.LEGAL.TEAM, Services Australia

                Thank you for making a freedom of information (FOI)
request to Services Australia. The FOI team is operating with reduced
capacity due to Services Australia’s  role in the delivery of the COVID-19
Disaster Payments.

The following is intended for people who are making an FOI request only

If your request is not essential at this time, please consider withdrawing
your request and applying again in the future. To withdraw your request,
please respond to this email confirming you agree to withdraw your FOI
request.

Timeframe for processing your request

As staff have been diverted to process urgent COVID-19 Disaster Payments,
we require additional time to process the request. We are seeking your
agreement to extend the processing time of your request by 30 days. This
means you can expect to receive a decision from us no later than 60 days
after Services Australia receives your FOI request.

Could you please respond to this email stating “I Agree”, to confirm that
you accept the extension of time.

Please note this period may be further extended if we need to consult
third parties or for other reasons. We will advise you if this happens.

Charges

Services Australia will advise you if a charge is payable to process your
request and the amount of any such charge as soon as practicable. No
charge is payable for providing a person with their own personal
information.

Your Address

The FOI Act requires you provide us with an address which we can send
notices to. We will send all notices and correspondence to the address you
have used to email us. Please advise us as soon as possible if you wish
correspondence to be sent to another address or if your address changes.

Exclusion of junior staff details

Services Australia is working towards ensuring all staff have a choice
about whether they provide their full name, personal logon identifiers and
direct contact details in response to public enquiries. Where such details
are included in the scope of a request, this may add to processing time
and applicable charges as it may be necessary to consider whether the
details are exempt under the FOI Act. On this basis, unless you tell us
otherwise, we will assume these details are out of scope of your request
and they will be redacted under section 22 of the FOI Act.

We will endeavour to process your FOI request within the extended
statutory timeframe however this may not be possible. 

We will not respond to ‘reminder’ or follow up emails so that we can focus
on processing your request as expeditiously as possible.

 

We thank you for your understanding and patience during this difficult
time for all Australians.
