2018 Insight and Compliance Results

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Information Commissioner's Office should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Information Commissioner's Office,

In 2018 the ICO introduced an encouraging new ‘insight and compliance’ approach. Authorities were asked to submit their statistics on meeting FOI (and subject access) time limits.[1] Any not answering at least 90% of requests on time were asked to meet that standard. If they did not they were asked to draw up action plans and those that fell short of their action plan targets became candidates for enforcement notices. These could compel the authority to answer overdue requests by a specified date. However, in May 2020, during the pandemic, that policy too was dropped.

I'm after the responses in spreadsheet format.

Yours faithfully,

George White
