Dear Francois,

 

Many thanks for submitting a Freedom Of Information request.

 

Due to the University focussing its resources towards our response to the
current pandemic, there may be possibilities of some delays to requests,
and in most cases we are unable to meet the 20 day timescale. The ICO have
released some guidance for applicants which explains that they will not be
taking regulatory action against organisations who cannot meet the
statutory timescales linked to both FOI requests and information rights
requests made under the GDPR, during the current public health crisis.

Please be assured that we fully intend to respond to all requests but we
hope you can understand that the University has more pressing priorities
at this difficult time.

 

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

 

Best wishes,

 

The Information Governance Team

Lancaster University
