Response to this request is delayed. By law, Department of Veterans' Affairs should normally have responded promptly and by (details)

To: Department of Veterans' Affairs,

Paragraph 7 of the decision of delegate Jasmine in LEX 47267 dated 30 June states that DVA consulted with several third parties and that the results were "mixed"

I want copies of all documents held by DVA about the third party consultations carried out in LEX 47267, as well as copy of the LEX entries for LEX 47267, to be provided to me in the form of PDF files sent directly to this email.

I do not consent to any s 22 redactions, other forms of access, extensions of time or any other tactics used by DVA to degrade and undermine the FOI Act and its objects.

Dear Verity Pane,

 

We refer to your request made on 4 July 2022 under the Freedom of

The purpose of this email is to inform you that, after a preliminary
consideration of the documents likely to be relevant to the scope of your
request, I have determined that there are a number of third parties who

We are required to consult with these third parties under s 27 of the FOI
Act. In accordance with s 15(6) of the FOI Act, the consultation
requirement extends the statutory time period to provide a decision on the
request by 30 days. This means a decision on your request is now due on 2

Attn INFORMATION.ACCESS,
