FOI Review - Common Good Funds - 101003053175

FOI Review 101003097591 

I am writing to request an internal review of Moray Council's handling of my FOI request 'Common Good funds: assets, value and spending'.

This FOI request is now long overdue.

Response 05-07-2022

Following your request for a review, a review into the Freedom of Information (FOI) Request - Common Good Funds - 101003053175 was held on 30th June 2022. In attendance were the Records and Heritage Manager, Principal Accountant Corporate Services, Senior Solicitor and Information Co-ordinator.

Your FOI Request from 19/04/2022 was discussed, and whilst a response from the department was received in time, there were serious delays in responding and providing the information to you. This was due to a high level of staff churn, the use of relief staff and the impact of COVID-related staff absences within the FOI Team. We confirm that we now have staff and procedures in place and hope that delays of this kind will not happen again.

We apologise sincerely for the poor service you have received.
