Dear Aberdeen City Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Aberdeen City Council's handling of my FOI request 'Funding for Charities'.

I am concerned that NAS have not appeared on the list of Charities regarding Autism.

I find it hard to believe that they did not charge for the services they provided.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/f...

Yours faithfully,

Annette Masson

Dear Ms Masson,

 

Thank you for your request for a review, received on 14 May 2018, to
reconsider the information request FOI-18-0622 – Funding for Charities on
the basis that you are not satisfied with the information provided. Under
the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA), if an applicant
writes to ACC expressing dissatisfaction with the way in which ACC has
dealt with their request, ACC must treat this as a formal request for
review.  The applicant does not need to specifically ask for a review.

We would like to ask you to clarify your request so that we can identify
and locate the information which you have requested. Under Section 1(3) of
the FOISA, we do not have to supply you with the requested information
until you have provided us with more detail in this respect.

 

I am concerned that NAS have not appeared on the list of Charities
regarding Autism.

 

We would be extremely grateful if you could clarify what you mean by ‘NAS’
?

 

Clarifying these points will help us to be sure we are providing, where
possible, the information you are interested in.  Please note we will keep
your request on file for 20 working days whilst we await your
clarification.  It can often be helpful to discuss your request with a
member of our team who may be able to help you frame your request or
explain more about how ACC holds its information; if this is something you
feel may be helpful please do call us, and we will be happy to assist you.

 

We look forward to hearing from you.

 

Yours sincerely,
