Dear Christian

 

Thank you for your email to the Department of the Prime Minister and
Cabinet (PM&C) dated 18 August 2021, in which you made a request under the
Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) in the following terms:

 

Please provide details of the goods or services by Walking with Wisdom Pty
Ltd as recorded in the Senate Order 13 document for 2020 and in the amount
of $534,600.00.

 

Please provide any information about the end date of services by this
company and if DPC was aware that the organisation has been deregistered.

Notification of transfer of FOI request

 

The FOI Act provides a mechanism to transfer a request to another agency
where the subject-matter of the request is more closely connected with the
functions of that agency than with those of the agency to which the
request is made (section 16(1)(b) of the FOI Act). This ensures that a
decision on the request is made by the most appropriate agency. As the
subject-matter of the documents you have requested is more closely
connected with the functions of the National Indigenous Australians Agency
(NIAA) than with the functions of PM&C, your request has been transferred
in full to the NIAA under section 16(1)(b) of the FOI Act.

 

The NIAA will be in touch regarding the processing of your request. Should
you wish to contact them, please do so by emailing [2][email address].

 

Yours sincerely

 

FOI Adviser

Dear Christian,

Freedom of Information Request no. FOI/2122/004

Thank you for your request to access documents under the Freedom of
Information Act 1982 (FOI Act). You have sought access to the following:

·         details of the goods or services by Walking with Wisdom Pty Ltd
as recorded in the Senate Order 13 document for 2020 and in the amount of
$534,600.00.

·         any information about the end date of services by this company
and if DPC was aware that the organisation has been deregistered.

We have understood you are seeking access to a document or documents
describing:

·         the details of the goods or services provided by ‘Walking with
Wisdom Pty Ltd’ as referred to in the Senate Order 13 document for 2020,

·         the date of provision of those goods or services, and  

·         the registration status of ‘Walking with Wisdom Pty Ltd’.

If we are incorrect in this understanding, please let us know by writing
to [1][email address] by Friday 3 September 2021.

Transfer to the National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA)

As the subject matter of the documents sought relate more closely to the
functions and responsibilities of the National Indigenous Australians
Agency (NIAA), your request has been transferred to the NIAA under section
16(1) of the FOI Act.

Request for information

Timeframe

You made your request to the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet
on 18 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 17 September 2021.

Request for an extension of time

The NIAA is currently experiencing FOI processing delays as a result of
the recent COVID-19 lockdown in the ACT. To ensure the NIAA may process
your request for documents within the statutory timeframe, we are
requesting an extension of time with your agreement, of 30 days under
section 15AA of the FOI Act. Should you agree to extend the timeframe
under s 15AA, a decision will be due to you by 18 October 2021.

If you agree to extending the timeframe for processing your request by 30
calendar days, please advise by reply email to [2][email address] by
Friday 3 September 2021.

We will advise you if there are any further extensions of time, including
if third party consultation is required.

Charges

Agencies may decide that an applicant is liable to pay a charge in respect
of a request for access to documents. If the decision-maker decides that
you are liable to pay a charge, a preliminary assessment of the charge
will be provided to you as soon as possible.

Publication

Please note that information released under the FOI Act may later be
published online on our [3]Disclosure Log, subject to certain exceptions.
If you think you might wish to raise any objections to the publication of
any of the information which may be released to you, please contact us by
email at [4][email address]. If you wish to object to the publication of
information, you will need to provide supporting reasons.

Information out of scope

The NIAA treats the names and contact details of Commonwealth staff not in
the Senior Executive Service (SES), such as Australian Public Service
(APS) officers, and other personal details of all Commonwealth staff (such
as signatures and direct phone numbers) as not relevant to the scope of a
request. Information that is irrelevant to your request will be excluded
from any documents which may be released to you.

Please note, the NIAA routinely excludes the following from documents
released in response to FOI requests:

•         duplicate documents

•         duplicate email chains

•         publicly available documents, and

•         draft or interim documents where a later version is included.

If you consider this information is relevant to the scope of your request,
please contact us by email at [5][email address].

Next steps

Please write to us by reply email to [6][email address] by Friday 3
September 2021 and tell us:

·         more information about the document or documents you wish to
access, and

·         if you agree to an extension of time of 30 calendar days to
process your request.

We will contact you using the email address you provided. Please advise if
you would prefer us to use an alternative means of contact.

If you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to
contact us at [7][email address].

Yours sincerely,

FOI Coordinator

Dear Christian

 

We refer to our correspondence of  14 September 2021 (copy below).

 

In our correspondence you were provided with written notice under section
29(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) that you had thirty
(30) calendar days from the date of the notice to either:

 

·        pay the charge, being the deposit or full amount outlined in the
Estimate of Charges, and notify the FOI Team via this email

·        notify the Agency that you wish to contend the charges, or

·        withdraw your request.

 

You were also advised that if you failed to contact the NIAA in writing to
do one of the above, within the timeframe, you are taken to have withdrawn
your request pursuant to subsection 29(2) of the FOI Act.

 

To date, the Agency has not received a response or payment from you in
relation to the Estimate of Charges.

 

Accordingly, your FOI request is taken to have been withdrawn pursuant to
section 29(2) of the FOI Act, and no further action will be taken in
relation to your request.

 

If you would still like to pursue your matter, you will need to lodge a
