Dear Department for Education,

I am writing to you under the FOI act in the hope that you are able to provide information similar to that which the department has provided me before.

I am requesting the names and contact details (email and phone) for all local authority directors of finance (DOF) and HR directors, or equivalent. I believe this information is obtainable via FOI for this level of employee, and DOF contacts have been provided to me by the department in the past.

If it is not possible to provide the information requested, please provide guidance under your Section 16 obligations as to how I may obtain this information.

Thank you in advance for your help with this.

Yours faithfully,

Mr J Taylor
