Dear Ministry of Defence,

Can you please provide information as to why you failed to respond to my request of 29 July 2011 to carry out an internal review relating to my request of 27 June 2011

“Dear Ministry of Defence,

Can you please conduct an internal review as I have received no
response within the 20 working days required by regulation to my
request dated 27 June 2011 asking

"Dear Ministry of Defence,

Please can you tell me if the assessments called for in para 45 of
Chapter 3 of JSP 815 “MANAGEMENT OF ORGANISATIONAL CHANGE” in
relation to the recent organisational changes made under the
Defence review and other management initiatives, for safety in
general and nuclear safety in particular were carried out to the
standard called for JSP 815 and if they were could you please
provide them to me.

Defence Environment and Safety Management JSP 815 CHAPTER 3
ORGANISATION

“MANAGEMENT OF ORGANISATIONAL CHANGE

45. Without adequate planning and analysis, change may result in
the inadvertent erosion of the emphasis on high standards of
environment and safety performance. This may manifest itself in
the
loss of established formal and informal environment and safety
processes, loss of critical safety culture, knowledge and
expertise, or lack of sufficient personnel to safely operate and
maintain a process with consequent increased likelihood of
accidents and incidents.

46. Duty holder organisations shall, prior to any significant
changes, conduct an environment and safety assessment to baseline
the existing arrangements for critical environment and safety
activities; analyse the impact and justify the proposed changes.
The rigour of the assessment shall be proportionate to the
significance of the change. Where appropriate and proportionate,
the organisation should seek the views of the relevant FSBs or
discipline leads.

47. It shall be the responsibility of the individual or team
proposing the initiative to implement and complete the assessment
prior to making any changes. Outcomes of assessments shall be
included in any submissions seeking endorsement to continue with
the implementation phase. Once implemented, the impact of the
changes shall be reviewed after an appropriate period.”

Dear DSEA-Secretariat Group Mailbox (MULTIUSER),

Thank you for the information your provided about DSEA, however my request was wider, in that I requested information about the assessments required by JSP 815 about the Defence review and other management initiatives. In particular about how the impact of Defence review and other management initiatives would change health and safety and nuclear risks
