Timeframe

 

Your request was received by this agency on 30 July 2020, and the 30 day
statutory period for processing your request commenced from that date. The
due date for your request is 29 August 2020.

 

As the AFP focuses its efforts on managing the impact of COVID-19 on its
critical, our ability to process requests for information under the
Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth) may be affected or not delivered
within expected timeframes. We apologise for the inconvenience and
appreciate your patience during this period. Should this occur we will
contact you as soon as practicable, and seek to extend processing
timeframes in accordance with the FOI Act.

 

Information considered irrelevant to the scope of your request

 

The AFP, in its management of FOI requests, excludes the following
information on the basis that is irrelevant to the scope of a request:

 

-      Names of AFP members, other than the Senior Executive.

-      Direct telephone numbers, signatures and mobile telephone numbers
of AFP members.

-      Duplicate documents, including duplicate emails.  The AFP will only
provide emails where they form a final email chain and the
authors/recipients are contained within the final email. 

-      Information that is publicly available, for example, newspaper
articles, online publications including information available on the AFP
Information Publication Scheme and the AFP disclosure log.

 

If you object to the AFP excluding any of the above information, please
advise this office within seven days of receipt of this email.

 

Disclosure of your Identity

 

Should the AFP be required to consult with third parties in accordance
with the sections 26A, 27 and 27A of the Act, please advise us if you have
any objections to those parties knowing your identity for the purposes of
the consultation.  If we do not receive your consent, we will not disclose
your identity to third parties.

 

Charges

 

You will be notified of any charges in accordance with the Freedom of
Information (Fees and Charges) Regulations, should they apply, in relation

website following the notification of a decision in respect of a freedom
of information request.  Details of the decision will be published in a
Disclosure Log which can be found at
[1]https://www.afp.gov.au/about-us/informat....

 

The requirement to publish information released under FOI reinforces the
objectives of the FOI Act to promote a pro-disclosure culture across
government and to increase recognition that information held by government
is a national resource.  Exceptions to the requirement to publish
information would apply to personal information and information concerning
the business affairs of a person if it was considered ‘unreasonable’ to do
so. 

 

If, however, after noting the above, you wish to raise any concerns about
the publication of information concerning your request prior to the
notification of a decision, please advise this office in writing before 29
August 2020.

 

Yours sincerely
