COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update – timeframes to process FOI requests
Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department may require additional time to process FOI requests. In these circumstances, we will try to seek your agreement to an extension of time.
Please send an email to the appropriate FOI mailbox (firstname.lastname@example.org for Agriculture and Water portfolio requests and email@example.com for Environment portfolio requests) if you would like to contact the department regarding your FOI request.
During this time, we encourage you to use self-service or administrative access schemes on our website where possible.
