Costs and Results of Advertisement campaign

The request was refused by Charity Commission for Northern Ireland.

Dear Charity Commission for Northern Ireland,

Via FOI would you please list (A) the costs of each of the advertisements in local media and to whom they were made by the Charity commission NI of April 2016, January, February and March 2017 for "trustees" for charities? (B) Could you also supply the numbers of successful applicants for each of the above months, and the number and name of each charity the successful candidates (if any) were tasked? (C) the process each candidate went through for successful "Trusteeship" (D) could you also explain why, prior to April 2016, your commission did not consider the need for advertising for "trustees" and explain what method was used in recruiting "trustees" prior to the April 2016 "Trustee recruitment drive?" ? (E) Please also provide the Commissioners Board Meeting Minutes in which the decisions for advertising to localised media resources were made.

Yours faithfully,

Petra moore

Dear Petra Moore,

I am writing in response to your recent request for information (ref:
FOI20170426) and would draw to your attention to the provisions of Section
8(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 which states:

"8 Request for information.

(1)In this Act any reference to a "request for information" is a reference
to such a request which- . 
(a)is in writing, . 
(b)states the name of the applicant and an address for correspondence, and

(c)describes the information requested. "

As we are considering refusing the request as vexatious or repeated, the
Commission is therefore entitled, in line with guidance issued by the ICO,
to seek to confirm identity in order to determine if the request is valid.
 The Commission is also mindful of its need to comply with its duty under
the Fourth Data Protection Principle which states:

"4 Personal data shall be accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date."

The Commission is therefore asking you to provide verification of your
identity as soon as possible.

You can verify your identity by providing proof of identity using a form
as per
[1]https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio....
This indicates you cannot use one form of identification for both name and
address. Please provide a clear colour photocopy or scan of identity
documents to Neil Wilson, Charity Commission for Northern Ireland, 257
Lough Road, Lurgan, Co Armagh, BT66 6NQ. Your data will be handled in
accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. Alternatively you may in
person bring the originals to the Commission’s offices at 257 Lough Road,
Lurgan, Co Armagh, BT66 6NQ, by appointment, to be verified. Once your
identity has been verified the Commission will process your request in
line with the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Kind regards,
