From: FOI

Dear Requester

Thank you for contacting the Department. Currently your request does not meet the requirements of the FOI Act as the documents you are requesting are not clearly identified. Please provide the Department with clear descriptions of the information you wish to access and describe the documents with full sentences.

For example, 'note, report, email and its attachment to/from/cc applicant and staff, screenshot showing data from the database, application and its supporting material/attachment excluding game' does not read clearly, and as such does not clearly indicate what you want to access.

Please also carefully consider the amount of material you would like to access. We note that you are interested in many different games and films. If we were to interpret your request as being for every document in relation to the below list, the request would be too large for the department to process, and/or would result in the imposition of significant charges.

In relation to classification decisions, the Department is able to provide access to reasonable requests for decision reports at no cost, outside the FOI Act. If you would be satisfied with receiving these, please let us know.

Regards

Melissa
