Dear Mr Smith,

         
Your Freedom of Information Request

I refer to your application emailed 18 April 2016 in which you seek access
to documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the Act) seeking
access documents relating to AFP Social Media policy.

 

Information considered irrelevant to the scope of your request

The AFP, in its management of FOI requests, excludes the following
information on the basis that is irrelevant to the scope of a request:

 

-      Names of AFP members, other than the Senior Executive.

-      Direct telephone numbers and mobile telephone numbers of AFP
members.

-      Duplicate documents, including duplicate emails.  The AFP will only
provide emails where they form a final email chain and the
authors/recipients are contained within the final email.  

-      Information that is publicly available, for example, newspaper
articles, online publications including information available on the AFP
Information Publication Scheme and the AFP disclosure log.

 

If you object to the AFP excluding any of the above information, please
advise this office within seven days of receipt of this letter.

 

Your request was received by this agency on 18 April 2016 and the 30 day
statutory period for processing your request commenced from that date.

 

You will be notified of any charges in accordance with the Freedom of
Information (Fees and Charges) Regulations, should they apply, in relation
to your request as soon as practicable. 

 

Information Publication Scheme

Please be advised that in accordance with section 8(2) of the Act, an
agency is required to publish information on their website following the
notification of a decision in respect of a freedom of information
request. 

 

The requirement to publish information released under FOI reinforces the
objectives of the FOI Act to promote a pro-disclosure culture across
government and to increase recognition that information held by government
is a national resource.  Exceptions to the requirement to publish
information would apply to personal information and information concerning
the business affairs of a person if it was considered ‘unreasonable’ to do
so.  Details of the decision may be published in a Disclosure Log which
can be found at
[1]http://www.afp.gov.au/about-the-afp/info....

 

If, however, after noting the above, you wish to raise any concerns about
the publication of information concerning your request prior to the
notification of a decision, please advise this office in writing before 16
January 2016.  If you do not raise any concerns prior to the date of the
decision, the AFP will publish the information as notified to you in the
decision.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Mr Smith,

           

Freedom of Information Request

 

I refer to your application dated 18 April 2016 in which you seek access
to documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the Act).

 

Upon consideration of your request, the AFP is of the view that your
request will take longer than 30 days to process.  The delay is
regrettable, however, due to requirement to seek clearance from the
appropriate line areas, it will not be possible to advise you of a
decision by 18 May 2016.

 

Accordingly, pursuant to section 15AA of the Act, I seek your agreement to
extend the period to notify you of a decision to 2 June 2016.

 

I would be grateful if you would advise this office in writing of your
agreement to the proposed extension of time as soon as possible.

 

In the meantime, I would like to draw your attention to documents that are
published on the AFP website as per our obligations under the Information
Publication Scheme -

to contact this office.
