Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Air Cadet Organisation,

Please provide an update on progress made by Commandant ACO in relation to each of its priorities stated in FOI2019/02242 dated 14 March 2019.
Please also specify how each of these priorities have been measured and whether they are deemed to have been met.

FOI2019/02242 states:
"... the priorities for Commandant RAF Air Cadets are
to:
1. Develop strategies to identify and then address the factors that impact on our ability to
recruit sufficient qualified and motivated CFAV to support effective delivery of the air cadet
experience.

2. Develop strategies to identify and then address the factors that impact on our ability to
retain those volunteers we recruit, recognising that a team of volunteers that feels
collectively and individually valued is more likely to stay.
3. Build on existing work to Value our Volunteers and reduce the administrative burden where
we can. In addition, renew our focus on recruitment at local, regional and national level and
the resources required to get our key messages across to target audiences.
4. Continue to recover the 2 Flying Training School glider capability and work to shape the
Cadet Aviation Offer.
5. Continue to support Cadet Expansion Programme 500.
6. Take forward the strategic Parenting Review.
7. Support development of the Cadet Force 2025 Strategy.
8. Take forward the Air Training Corps Strategic Footprint review.
9. Deliver a minimum cadet offer at every unit.
10. Deliver against core objectives to ensure resources (staff, CFAV and funding) are targeted
to best effect."

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Newmoore,

 

I acknowledge receipt of your Freedom of Information request which has
been given the reference FOI 2020/06693. The Freedom of Information Act
requires a response to be provided to a request under the Act within 20
working days from date of receipt and we therefore aim to respond to you
by 10 July 2020. Whilst we are working hard to achieve this, due to the
ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and the effect on resources and necessary
changes to ways of working, we should advise that it may take longer to
provide a substantive response to some requests.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Air Command Secretariat

 

Dear Air-DRes Sec-ParliBusiness (MULTIUSER),

I have not got a response when you should normally have responded promptly and by 10 July 2020 so its 12 days late.
Please advise what the delay is and when I will get a response, and why i have not been advised of the delay

Thanks

Dear Mr Newmoore,

Thank you for your e-mail below. The target date for reply to your FOI request was 10 July 2020. I apologise that we have been unable to meet this target but, due to remote working and limited access to redaction software and scanners, we are unable to currently prepare the requested material in accordance with FOIA. Please note that some documentation in scope of your request requires redaction of personal data, such as names and signature blocks, which cannot be released under Section 40 of FOIA (exempt from disclosure as it constitutes personal data under the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA)). Please be assured that we are working hard to resolve these issues, but regrettably, due to the continuing Coronavirus pandemic and the effect on resources and necessary changes to ways of working, it will take longer than we would like to provide a substantive response to your request.

I apologise for the delay and will keep you updated on progress.

Yours sincerely,

Air Command Secretariat
