Dear Menzies

 

The Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (the department)
has received your Freedom of Information request of 22 March 2021
(attached).

 

I am writing on behalf of the department to acknowledge receipt of your
request.

 

Currently, a decision is due to you by 21 April 2021. However, this
timeline may be affected by the requirement to undertake consultation with
affected third parties, or if the department determines you are liable to
pay a charge in relation to your request. You will be notified by the
department if charges are liable or if a third party consultation is
required.

 

Confirmation of Scope - personal information

 

For documents that fall within the scope of the request, it is the
practice of the department to withhold:

o the names, signatures and contact details of junior staff; that is:

o Commonwealth staff who are not in the Senior Executive Service
(SES); and
o Ministerial staff below the level of Chief of Staff; and

o the mobile phone numbers of SES officers.

 

The names and other details of SES officers will be released unless the
information is exempt from disclosure.

 

Confirmation from you that you are not seeking other 'personal
information' (i.e. contact details of any individuals, or any information
that could reasonably identify an individual) may enable a more timely and
cost effective processing of your request.

 

Therefore, could you please confirm if you are happy to exclude personal
information in the documents relating to:

 

o Commonwealth staff; and
o third party individuals.

 

If you are seeking access to specific types of personal information, could
you please specify. If you are not seeking access to any personal
information, you can simply reply to this email with 'no personal
information requested'.

 

Responding to this email

 

Could you please provide the above clarification at your earliest
convenience, but by no later than 9 April 2021.

 

 

If you have any questions, please contact the department’s FOI Team by
email at [1][email address].

 

 

Yours sincerely,

Let me get this right; my revised request as posted on Right to Know-
- meets your requirements insofar as you can waste my time by applying for extensions
- but falls short of your requirements insofar as you can refuse it at 5 minutes to 12?

Be that as it may, s24AB(7) requires me-
- to consult with you SUBJECT TO your notice
- to revise my request per s24AB(6)(b).

You can probably see where this is going, but your notice-
- requires only that my written revision is "addressed by email"
- by leaving it open as to who can address it.

Accordingly-
- my revision was addressed by email on 23 April
- by Ms Jasmin Clarke who so kindly addressed it.

In other words-
- this issue is immaterial (you are clutching at straws)
- by virtue of being irrelevant (by beating around the bush).

You were privy to my revision, whether by email, website or telepathically-
- and insofar as this was sufficient for s15AB
- then it was also sufficient for s24AB(7).

I'm hot for these documents.

Let's bury the hatchet, it's inquisitive Fridays!
