Ellie (Account suspended)

The 2017–18 Department of Industry, Innovation and Science Annual Report states that: "Significant instances of non-compliance were identified and reported to the relevant Minister and the Minister for Finance. The department identified significant instances of non-compliance with the finance law, specifically with the Commonwealth Procurement Rules (including consequential breaches relating to section 23 of the PGPA Act). Corrective action has been undertaken, which ensures that the department’s needs for operational efficiency and flexibility are met within a compliant framework." [1]

I REQUEST documents that include reports of the instances of non-compliance as reportedly sent to the relevant Minister and the Minister for Finance.

Please do redact all third-party information and names of APS employees below SES level by maintaining document substance.

Faithfully,
Ellie

Dear Ellie

 

I refer to your FOI request of 3 December 2020 (attached) to the
Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (the department) for
access to finance law annual reporting.

 

As you are aware, due to the holiday shut down period, the department
sought an extension under section 15AA of the FOI Act from you, however we
did not received a response.

 

As such, your request has been deemed refused, as the department has not
provided you a decision within the statutory timeframe.

 

Current status of your FOI request

 

The department still intends to issue you a decision in relation to your
FOI request. At this time, I am unable to provide you with an expected
date of decision.

 

I will keep you updated as the matter progresses.

 

If you have any questions, please contact the FOI team.
