Dear Mr Carter

Many thanks for your reply and supply those documents. I would like to make one further supplementary freedom of information request regarding these applications.

On the application for funds to support Frieze Video, it states the application was made by 'Frieze Publishing Ltd', with Anna Starling, publisher, as contact. However the offer letter addressed to Ms Starling states the applicant name as 'Frieze Foundation'. I believe these are two separate organisations. Please would you make available all emails, meeting notes, and records regarding how this change of applicant was made.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Gainsborough

Dear Richard
 
Thank you for your further email.
 
We do not hold any records relating to this issue and therefore we are
unable to treat your email as a further request for information through
the Freedom of Information Act.
 
Frieze Publishing Ltd is an alternate name for the organisation Frieze
Foundation. During the standard logging process for applications, a Grant
Management Assistant will have checked our existing contact list and
linked the application form for the activity frieze video - Art writing
for the screen to the existing contact name for Frieze Foundation, which
accounts for the change in name on the decision letter.
 
We do not hold any information about the nature of the reason behind the
alternate name but you may be able to obtain an explanation by contacting
the organisation directly. I have included some contact information below
which I hope will be useful.
