subject: Freedom of Information Act request (FOI_08-23) - ICO Investigation
to: "Mcgarvie Michael Mr \(ACAD\)" <M.McgarvieatXYZxyz.ac.uk>
Today I received a letter dated 19 March from the Information Commissioners Office
confirming that Mr. Holland has appealed our decision to the Information Commissioners
Office. (Copy in internal post to you tomorrow).
Please note that we will have to prepare the information requested for submission to the
ICO as part of the appeal. They have given us 20 working days to prepare the information;
i.e.. by 21 April 2009. They will also undoubtedly wish to see our administrative file on
the matter. I will draft a 'holding response' to this letter and will liaise further when
we have been contacted by the ICO case officer.
We need to go back to the original request and assemble the information requested. There
is no 'appropriate limit' applicable to the ICO so we have to do this regardless of the
time & effort. The key document is the letter of Mr. Holland of 5 May (copy forthcoming
with copy of ICO letter). I am happy to meet asap to discuss the most efficient and
hopefully least burdensome way of addressing this investigation.
