Dear Department for Business, Innovation and Skills,
I am doing a research project on central government departments and attitudes towards FOI.
I am interested in the grades of the members of the FOI team at your department and its structure. I would like snapshots of this information for on 1 January and 1 July for the years 2009, 2010 and 2011.
If you have organisation charts, that is fine. The particulars that I would like are the full job titles and grades of members of the team. If you are able to provide a brief job description (some of the team may be monitoring stats, some might be doing FOI requests, etc, although I know that these are fluid), then that would be helpful, but it is not necessary.
I am only interested in your centralised FOI team, not any FOI officials or contacts that you may have within policy teams.
I am also interested to know about the functions of the leader/senior official/head of your freedom of information team, in that I would like to know for the June months of the four years how many FOI cases have been undertaken by the FOI team leader, how may internal reviews and how many ICO cases.
