Dear Lucinda Turquand-Young,

Thank you for your email of 18/10/2020 making a freedom of information request and your further email of 14/11/2020. As explained in our initial acknowledgement message, the University’s working arrangements are affected by the Coronavirus outbreak. We have therefore not been able to progress your request as quickly as we would have hoped, and were unable to respond within 20 working days. Unfortunately, I am currently unable to tell you exactly when you will receive a response to your request but we are working to respond as soon as possible.

I can only apologise for the delay in responding to your request. However, as we did not respond to your request within 20 working days, you do have the right to ask the University to conduct an internal review of the reasons for the delay. The Scottish Information Commissioner’s guidance about this during the Covid-19 pandemic is available on their website. If you wish to submit a review request you should write to the Records Management Section (using this email address), describing the original request, explaining your grounds for dissatisfaction, and including an address for correspondence. When the review process has been completed, if you are still dissatisfied, you may use the Scottish Information Commissioner’s guidance on making an appeal to make an appeal to the Commissioner.

However, please note that the legislation only allows requesters to make one internal review request in relation to a request. Therefore if you ask for an internal review now on the basis of our response being late, you will not be able to seek a further internal review if you are dissatisfied with the content of the response to your request and your next step will be to appeal to the Scottish Information Commissioner as described above.

The University of Edinburgh's request privacy notice, which describes how we use the information you have supplied about yourself and your request, is published on the University website.

Yours sincerely

Records Management
