Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

FOI reference: FOI/18/02230
Date received: 15 August 2018
Date responded: 4 October 2018
Information requested

For the Scottish Government to supply the following documents for each of the applications which were successful in gaining grant funding for Malawi Projects 2018 - 2023.

Information requested for each of the undernoted projects:

  • Concept Note
  • Concept Note Assessment Scoresheet
  • Full Application
  • Budget Spreadsheet
  • MELT Framework Spreadsheet
  • Full Application Assessment Scoresheet

As discussed on 5 September 2018, you clarified that you are content to receive documents pertaining to the successful health and education projects for the Malawi Development Programme 2018-2023. 

I enclose a copy of all of the information you requested. 

An exemption under section 38(1)(b) of FOISA (personal information) applies to a small amount of the information requested because it is personal data of a third party, i.e. names/contact details of individuals, and disclosing it would contravene the data protection principles in Article 5(1) of the General Data Protection Regulation and in section 34(1) of the Data Protection Act 2018. This exemption is not subject to the ‘public interest test’, so we are not required to consider if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption.
