Dear Alex Parsons,

 

I refer to your recent request for information under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.  I can confirm that the Council only holds part of
this information, as detailed below.

 

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

There are no dedicated posts within the Council for dealing with FOI
requests.

 

2.    What is the budget for administering FOI?

The Council does not hold this information as there is no dedicated budget
for administering FOI’s.

 

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

The Council does not currently have any case management software for FOIs.

 

4.    Do you publish a disclosure log?

No

 

I hope this is satisfactory.  If, however, you are dissatisfied with our
response to your request for information, you can ask for the decision to
be reviewed in reply to this letter, however any request for review must
be submitted within 40 days of the date of this freedom of information
response.  The review will be removed from the Directorate and coordinated
by the Council’s Information Governance Officer.   A request for review
should be directed, by email to [1][Sunderland City Council request email],
by post or by hand addressed to; Information Governance Officer,
Governance Services, Civic Centre, PO Box 100, Sunderland SR2 7DN.

 

You are of course entitled to apply to the Information Commissioner at any
time, although the Commissioner will not usually investigate until the
