Dear J Roulson

 

Further to your request below for information we have considered your
request and I am pleased to provide you with the attached document which
contains the information that you have requested.    

 

After careful consideration, we have decided that the exemption at section
43 (2) of the Freedom Of Information Act 2000 (FOI Act) applies to some of
the information within the award application. We have therefore withheld
and redacted these because some of the information you have requested
contains commercially sensitive information. We have carefully considered
all the circumstances of the case and are satisfied that the public
interest in maintaining the exemptions outweigh the public interest in
disclosing this information. In order to understand our reasoning, please
see below the table listing the factors considered. We have used a scale
of 0-5, with zero having the least weight and 5 having the most weight, to
determine the weight of each public interest factor.

 

 

Factors in favour of disclosing the Factors in favour of withholding the
information information
The inherent public interest in The public interest in ensuring Sport
ensuring openness and transparency England is free to consult and
in the work of public authorities negotiate with British Cycling in

Also, please note that we have also redacted names, job titles, email
addresses and telephone numbers and all personal information from the
documents provided because we consider this information to be exempt from
disclosure under section 40(2) FOI Act. The names and direct email
addresses of our external partners and our non-senior, non-public facing
staff constitutes personal data as defined by the General Data Protection
Regulation. Our external partners and staff have a reasonable expectation
of privacy and would not expect us to make information about their working
lives public. As such, disclosure of this information would not be fair
and in direct contravention of the first data protection principle.

 

This completes our response to your information request.

 

As a public body, Sport England is subject to the terms of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and this means you are entitled to complain if you
are unhappy with the way we have handled your information request and/or
ask us to review our decision.

 

If you would like to complain about the way we have handled your request
or ask for our decision to be reviewed please contact:
[1][Sport England request email] 

 

Please describe your original request, explain your grounds for
dissatisfaction and include an address for correspondence. All internal
reviews are carried out by a colleague who has not previously been
involved in the handling of your information request. We aim to complete
internal reviews within twenty working days.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of our Internal Review you have
the right to appeal to the Information Commissioner. Generally speaking
the Information Commissioner will not be able to consider an appeal unless
you have first exhausted the Internal Review procedure provided by Sport
England.
