Support for Regional Development Agencies

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Business, Innovation and Skills,

Many thanks for your recent reply refusing my FOI request reagarding RDAs, on the basis of cost.

In order to reduce the potential cost burden to an acceptable level, I am submitting a new FOI request with tighter parameters.

Please could you send me all ministerial correspondece (that is both letters addressed to, and those sent from) concerning support for Regional Development Agencies, in particular Advantage West Midlands. My request is limited to correspondence directed to (and the resulting response) Vince Cable, Mark Prisk and David Willetts (or their special advisors).

Yours faithfully,

Ian Andrews

Dear FOI Requests,

Many thanks for your response and for providing the material I requested.

You have been most helpful - but I feel I ought to point out the the person from the RDA transition team failed to complete the template letter, providing an email address of xxx.xxxxxxxx @ xxx.xxx.xxx.xx, which I suspect is not a real address!

I am not intenting to follow this up, but thought you should know in order to avoid this error in the future.

Yours sincerely,

Ian Andrews

Dear Mr Andrews
 
Thank you for your email below.
 
I can confirm that the redaction of email addresses has not been conducted
by BIS as the letter sent to you contained complete email addresses but
these seem to have been removed by the What do they Know team prior to
publication on the website.  Most importantly the email address for you to
request an Internal Review should you be dissatisfied with the handling of
your FOI request, also seems to have been removed.   Please therefore be
advised that should you wish to contact BIS regarding an internal review
or any other matter concerning this request, you can do so via our FOI
team mailbox - [1][BIS request email].
