James Chillman made this Freedom of Information request to Catalyst Housing Limited
This authority is not subject to FOI law, so is not legally obliged to respond (details).


This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Response to this request is long overdue. Although not legally required to do so, we would have expected Catalyst Housing Limited to have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Catalyst Housing Limited,

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 I seek the following information about the Councils Backup Policy for its Office 365 deployment.

1.) Do you currently have any backup systems in place to protect your Office 365 Data?

2.) If a system or service is in place to backup your office 365 environment can you confirm the retention period the data is stored for?

If the decision is made to withhold some of this data using exemptions in the Data Protection Act, please inform me of that fact and cite the exemptions used.

If some parts of this request are easier to answer than others, I would ask that you release the available data as soon as possible.

If you need any clarification then please do not hesitate to contact me. Under Section 16 it is your duty to provide advice and assistance and so I would expect you to contact me if you find this request unmanageable in any way.

I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request, and I look forward to hearing from you within the 20-working day statutory time period.

Yours faithfully,

James Chillman
