Summary:          

Request for information held in respect of FOI management and
administration

 

Question 1

How many people are employed to deal with FOI?

Our response:

There is one full time position employed to deal with the administration
of FOI requests with occasional cover provided by the Information
Governance Manager as and when needed.

 

Question 2

What is the budget for administering FOI?

Our response:

We are unable to provide details of the budget for the administration of
the FOI process alone, this is because the FOI spend forms a part of the
wider Information Governance budget which incorporates a number of
functions in addition to the administration of the FOI process. The
2018/19 budget for the Information Governance Team is £70,561.

 

Question 3

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

Our response:

We presently use Pentana for the management of the FOI process.

 

Question 4

Do you publish a disclosure log?

Our response:

Not currently due to a recent upgrade of the council website, however we
have done so in the past and intend to resume publication on the new site
shortly.
