Dear Newham Borough Council,
I would like to make an FOI request for the following pieces of information:
1. How many people are employed to deal with FOI?
2. What is the budget for administering FOI?
3. Do you use case management software for FOI? If so, which one?
4. Do you publish a disclosure log?
If not all information is available, please treat questions individually.
Dear Mr Parsons,
We attach our response under the disclosure provisions of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.
If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact a
member of our team on (020) 8430 2000 or email us at
[Newham Borough Council request email].
Alternatively, if you believe we have not dealt with your request
satisfactorily you may initially complain to us and then to the
Information Commissioner's Office. The Information Commissioner would
expect you to have given the Council the opportunity to deal with your
appeal prior to you contacting them. Please see guidance on the Freedom of
Information Appeals page:
As with other local authorities, the number of enquiries has increased
each year since the introduction of the Freedom of Information
legislation. Therefore, to enable us to deal with your enquiry more
efficiently, we have introduced an online form. We would ask that you
