Dear Alex Parsons,
 
Thank you for your recent request for information relating to Freedom of
Information Requests which we received on 26/06/18.
 
Please find below, Sheffield City Council’s response to your request:
 
1. How many people are employed to deal with FOI?
 
Sheffield City Council does not employ individuals solely to manage FOI
requests therefore we do not hold information relevant to this element of
your request. Under our duty to assist a requestor we can confirm that we
have a centralised logging and review function within the Council’s
Information Management Team where requests will be received and reviewed
(sent for clarification if appropriate), allocated to relevant service
contacts, provide advice and guidance and ultimately review the responses
to be provided to ensure compliance with the legislation. This Team will
also complete Internal Reviews and any relevant correspondence with the
Information Commissioner’s Office. The individuals that complete this task
also deal with other information management issues and are not solely
responsible for dealing with FOIs. The wider handling of FOIs within
service areas can encompass many staff in the location and collation of
information to respond to a request.
 
2. What is the budget for administering FOI?
 
As per the above the Council does not set a specific budget for dealing
with FOI as this is part of other responsibilities with the Information
Management Team and wider Council.
 
3. Do you use case management software for FOI? If so, which one?
 
We do not use a bespoke case management system. A Sharepoint list is used
to track cases and monitor compliance.
 
4. Do you publish a disclosure log?
 
No.
 
If you have any queries about this response, please do not hesitate to
contact us.
 
If you are unhappy with the response you have received in relation to your
request, you are entitled to have this reviewed.  You can ask for an
internal review by either writing to the above address or by emailing
[1][Sheffield City Council request email].  Internal review requests should be submitted
within 40 working days from the date of this response.
 
If you remain dissatisfied with the outcome of your internal review, you
can contact the Information Commissioners Office. The Information
Commissioner can be contacted at: The Information Commissioner's Office,
Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF, telephone 0303
123 1113, or for further details see their website [2]www.ico.org.uk
 
Kind Regards,
