“Victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan” JFK. Do you really think that they will name those responsible for a £16m failure?

I liked the question about the tendering fiascos, and here's the best bit, which you overlooked 'No tendering process took place for many contracts awarded’.

After twenty working days they even can’t figure out who runs the show! No wonder this project is in such a mess.

Dear FOI Office,

Could you please tell me why there is such a delay?

Dear University of Glasgow,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of University of Glasgow's handling of my FOI request 'Who is Who SLP(MyCampus)'.

You have not responded within 20 working days.
I have asked the Scottish Information Commissioner and the Commissioner has advised me to request for a review.
I have enclosed the Commissioner’s reply for your information.

------ Start of the enmail.
Our ref: 201201675

Dear Mr McNeel,

Thank you for your email enquiry.

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) states that authorities must comply with a request for information promptly and an any event by not later than the 20th working day after receipt by the authority.

This means if 20 working days have elapsed and the authority is advising you that it is still trying to collate a response, you are entitled to put in a request for review (and I would advise you to do so as soon as possible). Once you submit your request for review, the authority will have another 20 working days to respond. While you may feel that you want to give the authority time to collage information for you, the difficulty is that you may end up waiting weeks for a response and then end up having to seek a review anyway, so I think you should seek a review now.

However, I would note that the above applies to information that falls under FOISA. If you are seeking environmental information that will be handled under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (EIRs) which have slightly different provisions. Under the EIRs, the 20 working days for responding can be extended by the authority if the volume and complexity of the information requested makes it impracticable for the authority either to comply with the request or to make a decision to refuse the request.

However, under the EIRs if the authority determines that it will take longer than 20 working days to respond it should give you formal notice of this as soon as possible, and certainly it should have advised you before the 20 working days response time is up and it should also have advised you of the review provisions under regulation 16 of the EIRs, along with details of the appeal provisions available in regulation 17 of the EIRs.

I do not know what information you have requested, but hopefully the information provided above will be of some use.

If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

j.
