Dear Mr Parsons,

Thank you for your information request submitted with Mid Ulster District
Council on 25/06/2018 under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the Act)
for confirmation on arrangements on processing Freedom of Information
requests.  The council responds to your request as detailed below.

Q1. How many people are employed to deal with FOI?

Response: This is undertaken within the resources of Democratic Services,
with 1 person having specific responsibility for FOI management.  

Q2. What is the budget for administering FOI?

Response: The Council does not have a specific budget for administering
FOIs.

Q3. Do you use case management software for FOI? If so, which one?

Response: Council does not avail of specific FOI software.  The
Council however uses the CRM module within Microsoft Dynamics 365 to
process, manage and respond to Freedom of Information requests.  

Q4. Do you publish a disclosure log?

Response: No, not at present.

I hope this is of assistance. However, under the Freedom of Information
Act, if you are not happy with the way in which your request has been
handled, you have the right to ask for an internal review. An internal
review should be requested within 2 months of the date of this response
and should be sent to:

Chief Executive
Mid Ulster District Council
Dungannon Office
Circular Road

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you can
ask the Information Commissioner for a decision as to whether the Council
has complied with its responsibilities under the Act. The Information
Commissioner can be contacted at:

The Information Commissioner’s Office (Northern Ireland)
3rd Floor
14 Cromac Place
BELFAST BT7 2JB
If I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact
me.
Regards
Philip
