Dear Sir or Madam,

I would like to submit a Freedom of Information request for the following information:

1) A list of the types of information which can be stored for each project record in the ARIES database. I would like a list of all the database fields (including fields/questions in documents which can be attached to project records).

2) A list of the types of information for each project which will be published on DfID's website as a result of the 'Publishing Project Information' initiative (which was mentioned in a DfID press release on 28 March 2009).

3) All documentation relating to discussion with or between Ministers about which information should be published on DfID's website as a part of the 'Publishing Project Information' initiative.

If any of this requires clarification then please let me know.

If you anticipate that this request will exceed the cost limit then please let me know and I will split it up accordingly.

Many thanks

Francis Bacon

foi, Department for International Development
