(2) Regarding the request that is recorded as 'decision pending':

(a) The ACT Audit Office is waiting to hear from the applicant who made the request. To date, the applicant has not provided a deposit of fees relating to the charges for processing the request; and

(b) The ACT Audit Office will resume processing the request once a deposit of fees relating to charges for processing the request is received from the applicant.
