Good morning Trav
 
Freedom of Information Request FOI21/133
       
I refer to your request under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI
Act) for access to documents.
 
I have understood your request to be for:
 
a copy of the 'Attorney General's Department Indexed File Lists - Sorted
Numerically 1 January 2012 - 30 June 2012'.  That document cites 'record
12/5946' titled 'Humanitarian Overseas Service Medal Amendment Regulation:
Iraq clasp'.
 
If you disagree with this interpretation of your request, please let me
know in writing as soon as possible.
 
The department received your request on 3 August 2021 and the 30 day
statutory period for processing your request commenced from the day after
that date. You should therefore expect a decision from us by 2 September
2021. However, the period of 30 days may be extended if the department
needs to consult third parties or for other reasons. We will advise you if
this happens.
 
Where the documents within the scope of an FOI request include the
personal information of junior officers of the department or other
government authorities, the department’s practice is to not disclose that
information (e.g., names, contact details). The names of senior officers
will generally be disclosed. In addition, duplicates and incomplete email
chains within the scope of the FOI request will be excluded.
 
Please note that, with some exceptions (such as personal information),
documents released under the FOI Act may later be published online on the
department’s disclosure log
[1]http://www.ag.gov.au/RightsAndProtection....
 
If you have any questions, please contact me by telephone on (02) 6141
6666 or by email to [2][AGD request email].

Dear AGDs,

Thank you for your email. The following information may help your search:

The Australian Senate had a continuing order which required departments and agencies to provide to the Senate a list of indexed lists of files created by them. The Senate advised us that the file number and title we referred to was created by AGDs. From what I understand the document's title is 'Attorney General's Department Indexed File Lists - Sorted Numerically 1 January 2012 - 30 June 2012'. The Office of Parliamentary Council advise that they hold 29 documents related to ‘a file with number 12/5946 relating to the HOSM Amendment Regulation: Iraq clasp’. I hope this helps.

Thanks for your time.

Yours sincerely,

Trav S

Good morning Leonie,
Thank you for your email. Yes, that is the document we would like a copy of if possible. If you come across related documents in your searches we would greatly appreciate you letting us know.
Thank you again for your time, we really appreciate the help.

Dear Trav S

 

Freedom of Information Request FOI21/133

 

I refer to your request under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI
Act) for access to documents.

 

The purpose of this email is to advise you that the period for processing
your request has been extended by 30 days to allow the department to
undertake consultation with a third party. The new date for the completion
of your FOI request is 5 October 2021.

 

In your correspondence with us you indicated you were interested in the
file title: 'Humanitarian Overseas Service Medal Amendment Regulation:
Iraq clasp' and other related information.

 

The department is able to provide to you an edited version of the file
list that is filtered for any file titles that refer to ‘medal’. If you
agree to an edited version of the list as the document for your request,
the department will be able to provide your decision before the new due
date.

 

The FOI Act requires the department to consult with third parties before
making a decision about the release of documents containing their
information.

 

Please note that, while the department will take the third party’s
comments into consideration, the department will make the final decision
regarding access to the relevant documents.

 

More information is available on the Office of the Australian Information
Commissioner’s Website. Information about extensions of time can be
accessed from: 
https://www.oaic.gov.au/freedom-of-infor...

 

If you have any questions, please contact me by telephone on (02) 6141
