I have requested that the Information Commissioner investigate this FOI.

Our Ref 201802042

23 November 2018

Dear Mr Brady

Application for Decision by the Scottish Information Commissioner
Public Authority: University of Edinburgh

Thank you for your email of 19 November 2018, applying for a decision from the Scottish Information Commissioner about the way in which University of Edinburgh dealt with your information request.

Your application will now be passed to our Validation Team to check. There are various legal requirements which must be fulfilled before the Commissioner has the power to conduct an investigation. If an application is wrongly validated, the Commissioner would have no power to investigate or to enforce a decision (e.g. to order a public authority to disclose information). The process of validation sometimes requires extensive correspondence with applicants to collate the details required to validate a case, e.g. dates of requests, reasons for dissatisfaction. At the moment, the process of validation is currently taking, on average, five weeks.

If we can investigate, we will send a copy of your application to the public authority, so they know what you have asked us to investigate.

If you used a pseudonym when you made the information request to the authority, let us know so that we can discuss the options open to you.

Please note that the above reference will be the reference number for your case and should be quoted in correspondence with this office.

The following link takes you to an equality monitoring form - https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/EqualityM.... I would really appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to complete this. If you would prefer us to send you a printed form please contact our office and we will be pleased to send one to you.

If you have any queries, please contact our Validation Officers; Pauline Keith or Suzanne Jenkins on 01334 464610

Yours sincerely
