New Access requests and ongoing access eligibility teams

The request was successful.

Dear National Disability Insurance Agency,

Does the NDIA have separate teams to deal with new access requests and ongoing access request eligibility? If so, how many APS are assigned to each respectively?

Yours faithfully,

Mark

Hello and thank you for writing to the FOI inbox.

 

Please be advised that during the upcoming holiday period, the NDIA
offices will be closed from Friday 24 December 2021 until Tuesday 4
January 2022.

 

As such, if you make an FOI request that falls due during this period, we
will be unable to process it by the relevant deadline. Our FOI officers
will be in touch to discuss a short extension of time with you to allow
for processing as quickly as possible.

 

If we receive an FOI request from you during the period of shut down,
noted above, our staff will not be able to commence processing the matter
or respond to any queries until Tuesday 4 January 2022.

 

If you are requesting your personal documents only, please consider
submitting your request through [1][email address] or
through our [2]Participant Information Access (PIA) web-form.

 

Kind regards 

 

NDIA FOI Team

Dear Mark

 

Freedom of Information Request: Acknowledgement

 

Thank you for your correspondence under the Freedom of Information Act
1982 (FOI Act) for copies of documents held by the National Disability
Insurance Agency (NDIA), which was received by the NDIA via the FOI inbox
on 17 December 2021.

 

Scope of your request

You have requested access to the following documents about the National
Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS):

 

“Does the NDIA have separate teams to deal with new access requests and
ongoing access request eligibility? If so, how many APS are assigned to
each respectively?”

 

Unless you advise otherwise, we will take it that you agree to the names
and contact details of NDIA staff being excluded from the scope of your
request (that is, the information will be treated as irrelevant).

 

Processing timeframes

A 30-day statutory period for processing your request commenced from 18
December 2021, in accordance with section 15(2A)(c) of the FOI Act.

 

Due to the NDIA’s reduced activity period between Christmas and New Year,
we are seeking your agreement to extend the processing time by an
additional 30 days under section 15AA of the FOI Act. If you agree to this
extension, you can expect to receive a decision from us on or before 15
February 2022.

If you do not agree to the proposed extension of time, or you do not
provide a response to our request, we may need to seek an extension of
time with the Information Commissioner under section 15AB of the FOI Act.
Therefore, we ask that you please provide a response by 4 January 2022.

Charges

We may apply a processing charge to your request and will advise you as
soon as practicable if a charge is payable.

 

Disclosure Log

Information released under the FOI Act may be published on the NDIA’s
disclosure log located on our website, subject to certain exceptions.

 

If you have any concerns about the publication of information you have
requested, please contact us.

 

Further help

Please contact us at [1][NDIA request email] if you have any questions or need
help.

 

We will contact you using the email address you provided. Please advise if
you would prefer us to use an alternative means of contact.

 

Yours sincerely
