Copies of periodic communications between the Vice-Chancellor and staff

We're waiting for James Murphy to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear University of Greenwich,

I am writing to request copies of periodic communications between the Vice-Chancellor of your institution and all staff working at the University. These circulars might be sent by email and/or placed on the university intranet and may be described as Vice Chancellor’s Updates or something similar. Could you please provide all such communications for the last 5 years or as long as you have recorded if this is shorter?

Best wishes,

James Murphy

Lucy Fincham, University of Greenwich

Dear Mr Murphy

In response to your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, please find the enclosed attachment.

We have redacted this slightly because we have applied two exemptions, as follows:

Section 40(2): relating to third party personal information. We have removed names of members of staff where those members of staff are either not senior members of staff, or they are senior members of staff but they have left the University. A small amount of personal information about certain members of staff or ex members of staff has also been removed.

Section 43(2): relating to commercially sensitive information. We have removed a small amount of information about the University’s business where we have considered that this is commercially sensitive, in that it could be of use to our competitors. These communications were aimed at the University’s members of staff, and were not written with the view that they would be released into the public domain. We do not believe that the public interest in disclosing them in their entirety outweighs this exemption.

This letter acts as a partial Refusal Notice.

If you are unhappy with this response, please detail your complaints in writing and send to the University Secretary, Peter Garrod, University of Greenwich, Park Row, London SE10 9LS ([email address] ).

If you are still not happy with our response after this internal review has taken place, you also have a right of appeal to the Information Commissioner at: Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF (www.ico.org.uk ).

Yours sincerely

Lucy Fincham
