Dear E-ACT,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of E-ACT's handling of my FOI request 'Marketing/PR activities - Dartmouth Academy'.

I believe your exemption stated in your answer to question 4 is invalid due to the Public Interest Test.

Your response was – “Prior to the school opening and only as part of the project phase before opening, a specialist marketing company was contracted to support brand development. The agency selected was Zest. The terms of this arrangement are commercially sensitive and we are not required to disclose details.”

I refer you to the following ICO guidelines;

In the Introduction to the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the Commissioner lists the following public interest factors that would encourage the disclosure of information:

Promoting accountability and transparency in the spending of public money. The public interest is likely to be served, for instance in the context of private sector delivery of public services, if the disclosure of information ensures greater competition and better value for money that is public.

Therefore I would appreciate it if you could reconsider your answer.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:
