Dear Northamptonshire County Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Northamptonshire County Council's handling of my FOI request 'Data Protection/Information Management/Information Governance'.

Thank you for the information you have provided, however I don’t agree with the use of the s40 exemption in order to withhold details of what internal/external training your IG/DP staff have completed relevant to their role since joining the Council.

In the interests of transparency and openness this should be provided so that the residents of Northamptonshire can be reassured that your DP staff are adequately trained and up to the task. Furthermore with regard to the DPO, the GDPR states that the “Data protection officer shall be designated on the basis of professional qualities and, in particular, expert knowledge of data protection law and practices and the ability to fulfil the tasks referred to in Article 39.” I would like to see whether the DPO you have appointed has been chosen based on this criteria. Other Councils I have requested this information from have provided me with details of the qualifications and training taken by their DP staff.

With regard to the DPO post you have referred me to agenda item 8 at the meeting of 
Full Council.   This agenda item notes that:
“Council is asked to: 1. To agree to assign the role of Data Protection Officer to the post post-holder of the Head of Performance, Projects and Customer Services.”
This indicates that the Head of Performance, Projects and Customer Services is the DPO but you have not sent me their JD. Please can you send me the JD for this post since, in effect, this person is the DPO?
