Dear Mr Smith

I refer to your email of 18 April 2016 3:31 PM to the Australian Electoral
Commission (‘AEC’) in which you request (‘FOI Request’) access to
documents relating to the AEC’s social media policy and guidance to staff
under the [1]Freedom of Information Act 1982.

I have taken your request to be for:

1.       Current social media policy of the AEC that covers departmental
use and/or private use by employees in an individual capacity.

2.       Any current guidance material that is available for employees to
make informed decisions about their private social media use.

The AEC received your request on 18 April 2016 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 19 May 2016. The period
of 30 days may be extended if we need to consult third parties,  impose a
charge or for other reasons. We will advise you if this happens.

You will be notified of any charges in relation to your request as soon as
possible, before we process any requested documents or impose a final
charge.

Please note that information released under the FOI Act may later be
published online on our disclosure log at
[2]http://www.aec.gov.au/information-access..., subject to certain
exceptions. (For example, personal information will not be published where
this would be unreasonable.)

We will contact you using the email address that you provided. Please
advise if you would prefer us to use an alternative means of contact. If
you have any questions, please contact me. My contact details appear below
in my signature block.

Regards

Owen Jones
