Dear foi,

I request a review of this decision for the first part of my request 'Can you please provide the amount of unawarded funds from the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) grants program for financial years 2017/18, 2018/19, 2019/20 and 2020/21'

My reasons for requesting a review are as follows:

- I have requested information about unawarded ILC funds and the response appears to point to public information regarding awarded and allocated funds and does not address unallocated funds.
- There have been ad-hoc/1 off grants awarded in years following grants rounds suggesting there are unallocated funds from previous years eg. projects awarded in 2021 from the 2019-20 ICB round

Yours sincerely,

Karen

Dear Karen

 

Thank you for your request for information.

 

We’re sorry to let you know that it’s taken us longer than expected to
process your request.  This is because of the need to consult with
multiple areas to attempt to locate the information that you requested.

 

We are therefore writing to seek your agreement to a 21 day extension of
time under section 15AA of the FOI Act.  If you agree the due date for a
decision will be 10 July 2022.

 

Please let us know whether you agree by 18 June 2022. 

 

If you don’t agree, we may need to seek an extension from the Office of
Australian Information Commissioner.

 

We’re sorry that it’s taken us longer than expected and we appreciate your
patience.

 

Please contact us at [1][NDIA request email] if you have any questions or
require help.
