Good Morning

 

Thank you for your FOI request below.

 

Under Section 43 (commercial interests) Corpus is unable to disclose the
information you request as information is provided to us in confidence (by
third party fund managers) and that disclosure would prejudice our
commercial interests.

 

Best wishes

Francesca

Dear Corpus Christi College, Cambridge,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge's handling of my FOI request 'College investments into the following list of companies.'.

As you may be aware, ICO guidance states that when applying a Section 43 exemption, an authority "must show that because [the information] is commercially sensitive, disclosure would be, or would be likely to be, prejudicial to the commercial activities of a person (an individual, a company, the public authority itself or any other legal entity)".

This response does not appear to have included such details, so I am requesting that you conduct an internal review, and, if the exemption is upheld, show how the release would be prejudicial to commercial activities, and of whom.

As you may be aware, ICO guidance advises that while confidentiality clauses can be useful in helping to identify commercially sensitive information, they should not be applied to an entire contract. (https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisatio...)

Please review this response and, if the exemption is upheld, provide all of the requested information not covered by the confidentiality clause.

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

Yours faithfully,

John Alex

Dear John

 

Apologies for the delay in coming back to you about a review of our
handling of your FOI request 'College investments into the following list
of companies'.

Following the review, we confirm that Corpus have employed S43 as
disclosing such information would restrict Corpus’ ability to trade with
investment managers in the future and therefore prejudice Corpus’
commercial interests.

Best wishes

 

Francesca
