Dear FOI,

Hi Kieran. Thank you for your prompt response.

To clarify what i am looking for with regards to CPA21173 and CPA24563 is the application documentation that was supplied to the Department of Transport regarding the Ford Falcon 6x2 conversion in the year 2000.

The reason for the request for the application documentation regarding compliance is to establish if either Ford Motor Company of Australia or Transit Engineering supplied proof in their respective applications to show that van bodies had been specified as being tested and approved in the respective application documentation to the Department of Transport in 2000.

CPA24563 was the application in 2000 by Transit Engineering to attach a lazy axle to the rear of CPA21173 which was the original Ford Motor Company Cab Chassis.

I would greatly appreciate a copy of the application documentation that was submitted by both Ford Motor Company CPA21173 and Transit Engineering CPA24563 to establish if any bodies were tested and approved in the applications that were submitted to the Department of Transport in 2000.

Thank You again for your prompt response.

Yours sincerely,

Grant Skinner

Dear FOI,

I have received the costs estimate with regards to the freedom of information search.

If as soon as possible could you please provide me a breakdown of how the estimate of $1103.49 has been estimated by the Department.

Before I commit to the initial deposit I need to know if the cost of $1103.49 is due to the volume of paper work that is involved in this freedom of information request.If the cost is due to the large volume of pages in the documents that I have requested then can you please advise me as soon as possible.

Yours sincerely,

Grant Skinner

Dear Mr Skinner

Thank you for your email below. Charges estimates for FOI matters are calculated in accordance with the Freedom of Information (Charges) Regulations 1982. The approach taken by the Department applies a standard timeframe in which to locate and review a document, and a page which is then applied against the values in the Regulations to produce the charge amount. I can confirm that from initial searches for the documents in scope of your request the Department has identified approximately 127 documents comprising 246 pages.

The volume of documents as well as the requirement under the FOI Act for the Department to consult with two affected third parties in relation to the release of the documents has resulted in the estimate provided.

As noted this is only an estimate and final charges will be reassessed upon further processing and may be reduced.

Please do not hesitate to contact the FOI team should you wish to discuss this matter further.
