Ian Phillips,

Dear Sir/Madam

 

I am writing to acknowledge your request for information of 18 September
2014.

 

I will be considering your request in accordance with the procedures set
out on the Wales Audit Office website at:

 

[1]http://www.wao.gov.uk/openness-and-trans...

The procedures are intended to ensure that requests are dealt with in
accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998, the Freedom of Information
Act 2000, the Code of Practice set under section 45 of the 2000 Act and
other relevant legislation.

 

I shall write to you again once I am in a position to provide a
substantive response, though I may write to you before that should I
require any clarification of any aspect of your request.

 

Please note that we have a policy of publishing in a disclosure log on the
internet information that we provide in response to requests where we
consider that this in the public interest. We will not, however, publish
personal information if this would be unfair and so breach the first data
protection principle. In line with this, we will generally not disclose
the identity or other personal information of requesters. We will,
however, disclose the identity of requesters if this is in the public
interest and doing so would be fair, such as in the case of holders of
public office. If you have any concerns regarding inclusion of our
response to you in the disclosure log, please let me know.

 

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to
contact me.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

Ian Phillips
