Dear Independent Police Complaints Commission,

Can you please provide a copy of the Risk Consideration Grid and associated documentation used in Determination of the Mode of Investigation at the IPCC.

Please be sure to include any policy or procedures in relation to this.

Dear Mr Purdy,

Re: Your request

Thank you for your email dated 9th March 2010, which you make a request
information which I now confirm receipt of.

I would like to inform you that there will be a delay in responding to
your request.
The reason for this delay is because the IPCC has over recent months
seen an increase
in the number of information requests it receives and this has in effect
caused a
delay in responding to requests.

I would like to assure you that your request is being processed and once
a decision
has been finalised you will be contacted. I would like to apologies for
the delay and
hope that this does not cause you any inconvenience.

Yours sincerely

Athena Cass

Dear !FOI Requests,

I do not accept that you immediately respond to my request informing me that there WILL be a delay! I am astonished at this email.

If you do not retract this intention to delay my request for information, I will request that the Information commissionaire takes a look at this request and whether you are permitted to delay in this manner.

I am uninterested in whether you have failed to resource properly and expect that this simple request is attended to within the 20 day period.

If I have not received a response within 2 days I will refer the matter.
Yours sincerely,

Mark Purdy

Dear !FOI Requests,
