Dear Mr Sullivan
 
Freedom of Information Act 2000
Thank you for your request for information received on 26 September 2012
for the following information:
Please can you provide me with figures concerning your authority’s FOI,
EIR and SAR performance for the last 12 months. The
information I require is:

1. The number of FOI’s, EIR’s and SAR’s received each month for the
last 12 months (August 2011 until August 2012). Please also provide
a separate figure for each different regime.
2. The number of FOI, EIR and SAR requests that were completed
within their allotted time limit. Please provide figures for each
month for the last 12 months (August 2011 until August 2012) and
please provide a separate figure for each different regime.
3. The number of FOI, EIR and SAR requests that were not completed
within their allotted time limit. Please provide figures for each
month for the last 12 months (August 2011 until August 2012) and
please provide a separate figure for each different regime..
 
We have processed this request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
 
Unfortunately we are unable to process your request without further
clarification. Whilst in your request you ask for FOI data regarding
requests received in a given month and the numbers of these completed
within the time limit, the council records data on requests due in a given
month, as this gives a more accurate and complete picture of performance.
I would be grateful if you could confirm whether the latter form of data
is acceptable to you. Whilst it would be possible for us to interrogate
our records and build up a picture as to cases received in a specific
timeframe, this is potentially a lengthy process, and could well take the
request over the 18 hour appropriate limit set out by the Act. 
 
 
If we do not hear from you by 2 January 2013, we will take it that you do
not wish to pursue this request and will consider the request closed.
 
 
Yours sincerely
