Aleksandr Kogan - Activity Reports

Response to this request is delayed. By law, University of Cambridge should normally have responded promptly and by (details)

Dear University of Cambridge,

Could you please release the submissions/reports made by Aleksandr Kogan (also known as Aleksandr Spectre, email address starting ak823) as required by the university in relation to the university's monitoring and appraisal of the activities of academic staff.

I suspect the material I am seeking may have been prepared and submitted in relation to the Annual Report of Professors and Readers and the Staff Review and Development (SRD) Scheme.

My understanding is academic staff are regularly required to report to the university on their activities and I am requesting a copy of those reports made by this individual.

I would like to restrict my request to reports submitted within the last five years.

Regards,

Dear University of Cambridge,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of University of Cambridge's handling of my FOI request 'Aleksandr Kogan - Activity Reports'. Your reference: FOI-2018-240.

The University has stated the material is personal information, the disclosure of which to a member of the public would be manifestly unfair.

I note any reasoning which has led to this conclusion has not been presented. It is impossible to challenge reasoning which has not been shared.

I would like the internal review to consider if the determination was reasonable. The information requested is not sensitive personal data, it relates to an individual's public life and their role in a public body. There is a legitimate interest in the public having access to the material requested not least as universities are public bodies under the Freedom of Information Act and they are required to operate in a transparent and accountable manner. Disclosure of the information requested would inform public debate on the academic activities of the university, and the individual in question. The public interest in this individual's activities, which recent press coverage and Parliamentary activity shows has been considered to be significant by MPs and journalists, is something I think the internal review should ensure is taken into account and given appropriate weight.

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