Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of British Broadcasting Corporation's handling of my FOI request 'BBC Trending Organisational Structure'.

I asked:

"Please provide an organisational chart/structure for BBC Trending, including senior manager’s names. Please also provide a breakdown of BBC Trending's budget and funding sources."

The response from the BBC was:

"Under section 1(1) of the Act, we can confirm that the BBC does not hold any information in regards to your request. Due to the size and changing nature of the BBC we do not have an organisational chart for the area that you asked for. "

This response is inadequate for the following reasons:

It only responds to the first part of my FOI request. It does not address the issue of budget or funding sources.

I also dispute that the "changing nature of the BBC" prevents the BBC from knowing how many people work in any particular department at any particular time, and what their job grades are.

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

Yours faithfully,
