Dear Department of Corrections,

Thank you for your response.

You have declined my request under s 18(d) of the Act. Although you stated it was under s 18(e), that was clearly a typo as s 18(e) refers to situations where “the document alleged to contain the information requested does not exist or, despite reasonable efforts to locate it, cannot be found”. I take you to mean s 18(d), “that the information requested is or will soon be publicly available”.

In response to a complaint regarding a separate request declined under s18(d), the Ombudsman stated:
“I would like to suggest that in future cases where section 18(d) is being considered as a reason for refusal, the following points are taken into account:
- Releasing the information to requestors as soon as reasonably practicable particularly where no harm or prejudice has been identified in the release of the information;
- Providing requestors with a specific date (or a date by which) it is expected that the information will be released; and
- Notifying requestors by providing a link to the information when it becomes known that the release of the information is imminent.”

Please tell me when the information I requested will be released.

Please notify me when the information will be released.

Sincerely,
Mackenzie Valgre.
