Dear Alan,

 

Please find enclosed our response to your FOI request;

 

1. How many people are employed to deal with FOI?  0.3 (The role is
performed in the main by paralegal officer, who has other duties with
cover provided by Information Security Team Leader in their absence)

2. What is the budget for administering FOI? There is no budget – any
costs would fall under main Legal Budget for financial year. We do not
recharge internally for FOI.

3. Do you use case management software for FOI? If so, which one? No –we
use a bespoke Microsoft Access Database

4. Do you publish a disclosure log? We do not have a disclosure log, but
we have a transparency portal, and we will be publishing a FOI FAQ
(initially consisting of top ten FOI FAQ’s) – this will be linked to live
back office uploads. E.g. Parking Fines
