Freedom of Information Enquiries,

Dear Robyn

Glasgow Caledonian University has received your request for information. As you did not provide your full name in the body of your emailed request, your application is not valid and therefore cannot be processed. For a request to be valid a requester must provide their full name in the request and, particularly for emailed requests, within the body of the email. Please see the guidance below from the Scottish Information Commissioner.

http://www.itspublicknowledge.info/FAQ/G...

"Do I have to provide my real name and my full address when I ask for information?

The FOI Act says that a request must include the name of the applicant and an address for correspondence. In terms of your address, either your full postal address or your email address will be fine.

You will need to provide your full real name. If you don't use your real name the authority won't have to provide the information, and you won't be able to appeal to the Commissioner. At the very least, your request should include your initial and your surname.

If you send your request by email, remember to put your name in the text of the email. Even if your name appears in your email address (e.g. [email address]) you must add your name to the text of your request, so that it is clear who the email is from."
Please therefore re-send your request with your full name in the body of the e-mail.

Yours sincerely

Jean Ash
