Dear Mr. Cullen,

I am writing in relation to your request for documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth). I note that a decision in this matter is due to you by Monday 13 July 2015.

Searches up until this point have not located any documents within the scope of you request. However, I would like to make some additional requests of our IT team which will take a few days to process.

With this in mind I would like to ask if you would be willing to grant a brief extension of time (pursuant to s15AA of the FOI Act), until Friday 17 July 2015, to finalise your request?

Kind regards,

Patrick

Subject: Section 15AC request - Australian Crime Commission - FOI 15-14
[SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

 

Dear OAIC,

 

I am writing to request a s15AC extension for an FOI request made by
applicant Luke Cullen.

 

Mr. Cullen lodged his FOI Access request (complying with s15) with the ACC
on Friday 12 June 2015. A decision was due to him in this matter on Monday
13 July 2015.

 

The decision on this request is now deemed refused.

 

Period of s15AC extension sought

 

The Australian Crime Commission requests a four day extension under s15AC.
This would make the new due date for the decision Friday 17 July 2015.

 

Reasons

 

Initial searches for the documents requested by Mr. Cullen failed to find
anything and the agency commenced preparing a decision on this basis.
However, following more detailed discussion with our Information
management team it became apparent that there was some additional searches
which could be conducted. The ACC believed it appropriate to conduct these
additional searches.

 

On Friday 10 July 2015 the ACC contacted the applicant (via email) and
sought an extension by agreement to Friday 17 July 2015 in order to allow
these searches to be undertaken. This morning the applicant responded,
indicating that he agreed to the extension (please see the attached email
correspondence). However, the response was after the deemed refusal period
had commenced.

 

The ACC intends to use the additional four days to undertake a more
exhaustive search of its holdings as on review of the process the FOI
coordinator deemed that the searches undertaken up until that point were
not satisfactory.

 

Your sincerely,

 

Patrick Dale
