today in @RightToKnowAu@twitter.com - the @naagovau@twitter.com wont process a request until someone responds to their request.... asking for an extension of time? just do the bloody work Kamron righttoknow.org.au/request/imp

@Posty If you or I have a legal obligation we have to do it, basically regardless of cost.
Government - must do X, Y, Z - nah too $$$.

@tqft pretty sure this is a flagrant violation as is, because they haven't even calculated any costs or reasons why they should refuse. an applicant not responding is not grounds to ignore the request - but as @daedalus knows FOI is basically "make up your own rules" land until the OAIC hit them with a wet lettuce leaf and say 'do it again' only if someone complains loudly enough.

@Posty @tqft There are essentially no penalties for government agencies failing to comply with FOI law.
