Dear Mr Eveleigh,

 

I’m writing to update you on the progress of your FOI request, for
correspondence between the National Audit Office (NAO) and Simul8.

 

As you may be aware, we are required to consult any third parties whose
interests might be affected by the release of information.  We are also
considering whether any of the information is exempt from disclosure under
the S.33 (audit functions), S.43 (commercial interests) and S.40 (personal
data) exemptions - as the information you have requested relates to our
audit work, the commercial activities of Simul8, and contains personal
data.

 

We have not yet concluded our consideration of these matters and so,
regrettably, we are not in a position to send you our response by today’s
20 working day deadline.

 

I am sorry for this delay, but we hope to conclude matters soon and will
send you our response as quickly as we can.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

 

Joseph da Silva | FOI Team
