Dear Ginger Meany

 

Thank you for your request for information.

 

The Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) provides a person a legally
enforceable right to obtain access to documents; however, the FOI Act does
not impose an obligation on a Commonwealth entity to provide documents
already in the public domain, or otherwise publicly accessible.

 

We have undertaken reasonable searches consulted with business areas and
NDIA staff who advised that the research and evidence used to calculate
funding amounts listed in the consultation paper are within the
[1]‘Interventions for children on the autism spectrum consultation paper’.
We have been advised that the information you are seeking can be found
within the report, specifically on pages 4, 7, 9, 20 and 25.

 

Given the documents and information you are seeking are publicly
available, we are closing your request.

 

Please contact us at [2][NDIA request email] if you have any questions.

 

Kind regards
