We received your request on 2 March 2021 and the 30 day statutory period

the charge as soon as possible.

 

Publication of documents

 

Please note that information released under the FOI Act may later be

you require signatures, the names and contact details of non-SES officers
or Ministerial staff below the level of Chief of Staff, or the mobile or
direct numbers of SES officers please let us know at [3][DPMC request email] so
the decision-maker may consider; otherwise we will take it that you agree

is, the information will be treated as irrelevant and redacted from any
documents for release).

 

We will write again when the Department has more information.  Further
information on FOI processing can be found at the website of the Office of

Dear Trav S

 

I write in relation to your FOI request dated 2 March 2021, for access
under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth) (FOI Act) in the following
terms:

 

This is a request for information under the FOI Act.

 

Palladium Group Pty Ltd is eligible for the HOSM with Phillipines clasp. 
Please release the following documents for public review:

 

1.   Palladium Group's submission for HOSM eligibility.

 

2.  Submissions and testimonials from other entities related to Palladium
Group's participation in the eligible relief operation.

 

Third Party Consultation

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

We are now writing to you to advise that the request covers one or more
documents which:

·         contain information concerning the business, commercial or
financial affairs of an organisation, or a person’s business or
professional affairs, and the Department is required to consult with the
person or organisation concerned (under section 27 of the FOI Act) before
making a decision on the release of the documents; and

 

·         contain another individual’s personal information, and the
Department is required to consult with that individual (under section 27A
of the FOI Act) before making a decision on the release of the documents.

 

The consultation mechanism under section 27 applies when we believe the
person or organisation concerned may wish to contend that the requested
documents are exempt because their release would disclose trade secrets or
commercially valuable information or may adversely affect their business
or financial affairs.

 

The consultation mechanism under section 27A applies when we believe the
individual (or their representative) may wish to contend that the
requested documents are exempt for reasons of personal privacy.

 

We will take into account any comments we receive from the person or
organisation, but the final decision about whether to grant you access to
the documents you requested rests with the Department.

 

Section 15(6) of the FOI Act provides for the extension of the processing
time by a further 30 days in order to allow the Department time to consult
with that organisation or person.

 

Accordingly, the period for processing the request has been extended by 30
days in order to consult with that person or organisation (section 15(6)
of the FOI Act). You should therefore expect to receive the Department’s
decision on the FOI request by Monday, 3 May 2021 (subject to any other
extensions or suspensions of time allowed under the FOI Act).

 

You are welcome to contact us anytime.

 

Yours sincerely
