Responding to FoI requests performance

The request was partially successful.

Dear Department for Communities and Local Government,

For the period since May 2010 to date

1) How many FoI requests have DCLG received
2) How many were answered within 20 days
3) How many were rejected for being vexatious using section 14.1
4) How many requests for internal review

Finally do DCLG have a set of performance targets relating to responding to FoI requests?

Yours faithfully,

Amy Fisher

Dear Juliet Tomlin,

Thank you for your response. I will await the MoJ reports of FoI performance.

In your reply you did not address the question on DCLG targets

..do DCLG have a set of performance targets relating to
responding to FoI requests?

Can you please confirm or deny the existence of targets?

Yours sincerely,

Amy Fisher
