Dear Ms. Carver

 

Thank you for your request for information dated 12/12/2017 concerning Sen
Org Chart

 

This is to inform you that your request has been considered and I can
provide the following response:

 

The Request:

 

Please can you send me an up to date Organisational Structure Chart for
the Special Educational Needs Department, including names.

 

The Response:

 

Please see attached chart

 

Where data has been redacted from the document this has been done in line
with Section 40 (2) of the Freedom Of Information Act 2000 because the
seniority of the council officer identified is not sufficient to expect
that their personal details (Including name) would be released to the
public as would be the case with a Freedom of Information request.

 

Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 requires Powys County
Council, when refusing to provide such information (because the
information is exempt) to provide you the applicant with a notice which:

(a)  states that fact;

(b)  specifies the exemption in question and

(c)  states (if that would not otherwise be apparent) why the exemption
applies.

Part of the information you requested is being withheld because it falls
under the exemption in section 40 (2) of the Freedom of Information Act
2000.

 

Section 40 (2) applies to third party personal data. This would not be
released under the Freedom of Information Act unless there is strong
public interest to do so. This is because any release would breach the
Data Protection Principles as contained within the Data Protection Act
1998.  Information released under the Freedom of Information is considered
to be released into the public domain, without caveat, not just to the
individual requesting the information. We believe that information
relating to identifiable individuals constitutes their personal data and
if released would contravene the first data protection principle.  The
first principle of the Data Protection Act 1998 states in part that:
“Personal data shall be processed fairly and lawfully and, in particular,
shall not be processed unless at least one of the conditions in Schedule 2
is met, and in the case of sensitive personal data, at least one of the
conditions in Schedule 3 is also met”.  We are obliged to comply with the
first principle where we are required to ‘handle people’s personal data
only in ways they would reasonable expect’. It is reasonable in these
circumstances that the identity of the individuals and the information
relating to them would not be disclosed in response to a Freedom of
Information request.

 

Therefore, based on the considerations above the exemption afforded under
Section 40 (2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 is engaged and in
accordance with Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, this
letter acts as a Refusal Notice for this element of your request.

 

We regret the delay you have experienced with this request. We acknowledge
that Powys County Council has failed in its obligation under the Freedom
of Information Act 2000, to provide you with a response to your request
within the statutory timescale of 20 working days. Please accept our
apologies for this and for any inconvenience this may have caused.

 

We believe that this request is now complete and shall be closed
immediately. Should any further information be requested regarding this
topic, a separate request will need to be submitted.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in
Powys County Council.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Information Compliance Team
