Dear Julie

Timeframes for dealing with your request

Section 15 of the FOI Act requires this office to process your request no
later than 30 days after the day we receive it. However, section 15(6) of

consult with third parties about certain information, such as business
documents or documents affecting their personal privacy. We will notify
you separately if we need to consult a third party.

Dear Jospeh,

In response to your question "Could you please confirm whether or not you seek access to third party contact details (email address and phone number)?", the answer is:

* I do not seek phone numbers and they may be redacted under section 22 as irrelevant; and

* I do not seek the beginning of email addresses (anything before the @ - typically the name of an individual in part or in full or some abbreviation thereof) - the latter part of email addresses (the domain name) may be relevant to identifying if a party is a third party or an internal party so is in scope.

Sincerely

Julie

Legal, Office of the Australian Information Commissioner

Dear Julie

Freedom of information request no. FOIREQ21/00001

I refer to your request made under the Freedom of Information Act 1982
(Cth) (FOI Act) and received by the Office of the Australian Information
Commissioner (OAIC) on 25 December 2020.

Because your request covers documents which contain information concerning
an organisation’s business or professional affairs and personal
information, the OAIC is required to consult the individuals and
organisations under ss 27 and 27A of the FOI Act before making a decision
on release of the documents.

For this reason, the period for processing your request has been extended
by 30 days to allow time to consult (see s 15(6) of the FOI Act). The
processing period for your request will now end on 23 February 2021.

The consultation mechanisms under ss 27 and 27A apply when we believe the
person or organisation concerned may wish to contend that the requested
documents are exempt for reasons of personal privacy, or may adversely
affect their business or financial affairs. We will take into account any
comments we receive but the final decision about whether to grant you
access to the documents you requested rests with the office of the OAIC.

Kind regards
