Dear Mr Watt,

 

Thank you for your information request of 9 October 2017.  Aberdeen City
Council (ACC) has completed the necessary search for the information
requested.

 

Please provide a copy of the agendas, reports and minutes of Information
Governance Group meetings held, or scheduled, since 01 June 2017

Please see attached copies of the agendas and action notes of Information
Governance Group meetings held since 1 June 2017.

 

Please note that third party names and personal details, as well as the
names of ACC Officers who are below Head of Service level have been
redacted (blacked out) from the attached document as it is exempt from
disclosure under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.  In order
to comply with its obligations under the terms of Section 16 of the FOISA,
ACC hereby gives notice that we are refusing your request under the terms
of Section 38(1)(b) in conjunction with 38(2)(a)(i) – Personal Information
- of the FOISA.

 

In making this decision ACC considered the following points:

 

ACC is of the opinion that Section 38(1)(b) applies to the information
specified above as any information held is personal information relating
to living individuals, of which the applicant is not the data subject.

 

ACC is of the opinion that Section 38(2)(a)(i) applies, as we consider
that disclosure of this information would be a breach of the first Data
Protection Principle (that personal information must be processed fairly
and lawfully). These individuals have not consented to the disclosure of
their information, and ACC does not consider that they would expect ACC to
release this information about them into the public domain under the
FOISA.

 

We hope this helps with your request.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Grant Webster

Information Compliance Officer

 

INFORMATION ABOUT THE HANDLING OF YOUR REQUEST

 

ACC handled your request for information in accordance with the provisions
of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. Please refer to the
attached PDF for more information about your rights under FOISA.

Dear Foi Enquiries,

For each of the meetings on 12th June, 18th July and 28th August there appear to be two documents produced both headed Agenda. Can I take it that the second of each of these is actually the Action Note arising from the meeting. The exception is the meeting on 4th October which has an Agenda and Action Note.

Since there are no reports produced here, can you confirm that no written updates were prepared and circulated, or given at the meeting, for any of the agenda items at any of the meetings i.e. that everything was a verbal update?

Yours sincerely,

Ian Watt

Dear Mr Watt,

 

Thank you for your e-mail of 18 November 2017 which we received on 20
November 2017.

 

Please see below the response to your further questions:

 

For each of the meetings on 12th June, 18th July and 28th August there
appear to be two documents produced both headed Agenda. Can I take it that
the second of each of these is actually the Action Note arising from the
meeting. The exception is the meeting on 4th October which has an Agenda
and Action Note.

 

Yes, in each case, the second document is the Action Note.

 

Since there are no reports produced here, can you confirm that no written
updates were prepared and circulated, or given at the meeting,  for any of
the agenda items at any of the meetings i.e. that everything was a verbal
update?

 

Yes, we can confirm that there were no written reports prepared and
circulated specifically for the meetings or given at the meetings. The
agenda items refer to work taking place outside of the meetings and being
guided by the group. These reports and policies are now publically
available via the published reports of the [1]Audit, Risk & Scrutiny
Committee and the [2]Finance, Policy & Resources Committee.

 

We hope this helps with your request.

 

Yours sincerely,
