Portfolio takes full 45 days to comply with info boss
(CNS): The information commissioner expressed her disappointment on Monday that the Portfolio of the Civil Service and the Office of the Deputy Governor waited until the last minutes to hand over documents that she had ordered be released in connection with the recent recruitment of three senior civil servants. She confirmed that the public authority had finally complied with an order she made in her 21st decision handed down in July. Just ahead of Right to Know Week later this month, Jennifer Dilbert pointed out that the portfolio had waited the full 45 days to release the records.
The documents relate to an FOI request made by an applicant regarding the appointment of three chief officers made this January. During the hearing Dilbert upheld the decision of the portfolio to redact some information but overturned the decision to withhold the resumes and qualifications for the successful candidates. She also overturned the decision to redact some information contained in the unfinished unsigned panel report provided to the applicant and ordered the disclosure of an unredacted copy, as well as other relevant records that she had identified and ordered their disclosure.
The commissioner had also revealed that the portfolio and the deputy governor’s office were in contravention of the Freedom of Information Law with respect to the record keeping for the recruitment exercise for chief officers conducted in January 2012.
