Dear CCEA,

Dear Northern Ireland Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Northern Ireland Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment's handling of my FOI request 'Spending on A2C'.

The response to my request has been delayed by over two weeks. Legally, CCEA should have responded by now.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/s...

Yours faithfully,

Mr Mulholland, with reference to your Freedom of Information request reference number F010917, this is our response.

There was no A2C software program and thus no budget allocated or costs collected against same. All software development costs to accommodate A2C project were absorbed in other major software development modernisation projects which are currently 95% operational. Therefore we do not have a figure to disclose.
