Thank you for your email which is now being dealt with by the Freedom of
Information Team at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

Dear Mr Parmar,

Thank you for your information request of 13 December 2016. You asked:

“Please can I have a organisation structure of all IT, Procurement,
Finance and HR services within your organisation, including team name,
phone number and team managers name”

I have dealt with your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000
(the Act).

I can advise that the information you have requested is exempt from
disclosure under section 21 (information available by other means) of the
Act.  This is because this information has been published on the [1]gov.uk
website at the following link:
[2]https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio....

More recent data is exempt from disclosure under section 22 (intended for
future publication) of the Act. Section 22 provides an exemption against
release where the information will be made available to the public in the
near future. For this exemption to apply there is a requirement to conduct
a public interest test to determine where the balance of public interest
lies for the release of the information.

 

We have considered the arguments in favour of release alongside those in
favour of withholding the information. It is our view that, whilst there
may be an interest in early sight of this information, there is also a
strong public interest to ensure that publication of organograms takes
place in accordance with certain procedures to ensure accuracy and
consistency and the information you are seeking is published
periodically.  The Department therefore considers the balance of public
interest to fall on the side of withholding the information at this point
in time.

 

Please note that the names of team managers has been withheld under
section 40 (personal information) of the Act. Section 40 is an absolute
exemption and therefore does not require a public interest test.

Yours sincerely,

 

Freedom of Information Team
