Dear Mr Smith,

 

I refer to your email dated 18 April 2016 making a request under the  FOI
Act.  Under section 15(5)(a) FOI  Act, IA acknowledges receipt of your 
request.

 

The 30 day statutory period for processing your request commenced on 19 April 2016.  The
period may be extended for a number of reasons including if we impose a charge, or if it is
necessary to consult with third parties. 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.

 

At present, IA intends to consult with the Department of Infrastructure and Regional
Development relating to documents that potentially fall within the ambit of your request.

Dear Mr Smith,

 

IA encourages informal requests for access to documents outside the FOI
Act where possible.

 

In this case, IA will need to confer with the Department of Infrastructure
and Regional Development as previously mentioned.

 

IA will contact you again to advise whether informal access can be made after we have
conferred with DIRD.

Dear FOI Coordinator,

I would be willing to withdraw this FOI request upon provision of the 7 mentioned documents.

However, can you please advise why one document is exempt?
