The request was partially successful.

Dear NHS Business Services Authority,

Under FOI, I am requesting the following information:

Copies of all e-mail correspondence held by EIBSS, dated within 2021, which relates to the decision making or discussion around whether or not to add Factor 8 to the list of charities/non-profit organisations on the EIBSS website.

Please note, in order to narrow the scope of this request, any correspondence which has been sent directly to, or received from Factor 8, should be omitted.

Yours faithfully,

Please be aware that I have decided not to release full details of all
staff as this information falls under the exemption in Section 40

two categories:

Disclosure of the information would breach the first data protection
principle as:

an intrusion into the privacy of those staff.
