Dear John Gilchrist,

Your response says that financial information is sensitive. Fine. So don't release financial information. Black it out and disclose the rest of the memorandums. Please can you have someone more senior look at this.

Yours sincerely,

Dominik Schade

John Gilchrist, Middlesex University

Dear Dominik,

Just to confirm you are asking for an internal review of my decision to withhold the agreements due to reasons of commercial sensitivity?

Thanks,
John.

Dear John Gilchrist,

I want an internal review as offered by your FOI policy, because your decision to withhold the whole of the documents in full is not lawful.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Schade

 

Thank you for your email, received on 2 October 2018, in which you
requested a review of the decision made in relation to your FOI request.

 

I am writing to you to advise you that I will conduct the internal
review.  I am a Director at Middlesex University and I was not party to
the original decision on whether to release the information. 

 

I will review the manner in which the application for information was
dealt with and I am empowered to either uphold or overturn the original
decision.

 

Once I have conducted the internal review, I am required to notify you as
to the final decision made, within four weeks of receiving the request.

 

You will receive my response on or before Tuesday 30 October 2018.

 

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Schade

 

I refer to your FOI request of 26^th September and your request for an
internal review. Further to the University’s letter to you dated 5^th
October, I am writing on behalf of the University to let you know that we
are still in the process of going through the relevant agreements to
identify appropriate redactions. We are reviewing over 20 agreements. I
then have to consult with relevant individuals within the University and
possibly with the contracting partners, so this process is taking longer
than anticipated. In the circumstances, we expect to disclose the
information you have requested with appropriate redactions by 13^th
November at the latest.

 

 

Kind regards

Dear Martina,

I asked for the documents in PDF and section 11 of the FOI Act says this is how you have to give them.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Schade

 

Following your request for a review, we have reconsidered the decision
sent to you.

 

You made the following request:

 

‘Please can you disclose a PDF of each memorandum of understanding you
have with each partner London-based partner institution listed on your
website here
[1]https://www.mdx.ac.uk/about-us/academic-... By
London based I mean those whose campus, building or head office is located
in Greater London.’

 

In response you received a University decision stating that the Memorandum
of Understanding were commercially sensitive.  You replied by requesting
copies of the agreements with any such commercially sensitive information
redacted.  

 

We hold two Memoranda of Understanding, both of which are enclosed.  The
only redactions made are in relation to personal information of third
parties, which we have redacted on the basis that personal data is exempt
from disclosure under s40 of the Act.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

David Malpas

Director of Student Affairs

Student and Legal Affairs
