Dear Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge,

I'm writing in regards to the 'Gender and Migrant Pay Gap' request sent to you on the 21st June 2021, which was made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. As per the law, you should have responded to our request by the 20th July 2021, however, we have received no such reply. Since the statutory deadline has passed, we are within our rights to refer Gonville and Caius to the Information Commissioner. However, we are willing to give you additional time to respond. If we do not hear back from you by the beginning of next week (26th July 2021), we will begin the process of referring the college to the Information Commissioner. We hope to hear from you ahead of this date.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Sir or Madam,

We respond to your request below between asterisks after the questions. Note that to produce some of the information in your request at the date stated (5th April 2020) would cause us to invoke section 12 FOIA. We are able to supply the information, however, at a later date because of a major system upgrade which allows easier access. Therefore rather than invoke s12 which would apply to your entire request, we have supplied some information at 5th April 2020 and some at 5th November 2020, the date that data relevant to some of the request was reliably complete in our new system. We have invoked s12 in relation to one question, rather than to your entire request.

If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a complaint or request a review of this decision, you should write to the Senior Bursar, Gonville & Caius College, Trinity Street, Cambridge, CB2 1TA who will then assign an appropriate person to conduct the internal review. If subsequently you are not content with the outcome of your complaint, you may apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. Generally, the Information Commissioner cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted the complaints procedure provided by the College. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: The Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

Yours faithfully,

Robert Gardiner
