How many FOI officers, assistants or equivalent work in your organisation?
Do they work together as 1 team or are they working in different services/ departments?
What decade was each of the above employees born?
While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in relation to your question about the decade that the FOI case handler was born in, the Scottish Government does not hold that information. Due to the devolved model of handling FOI’s, any individual in the Scottish Government may undertake a role in an FOI request and there is no business reason to record a decade of birth against the employee undertaking this specific task.
This is a formal notice under section 17(1) of FOISA that the Scottish Government does not have the information you have requested.
The FOI unit were asked and have consented in this instance to provide their respective decades of birth. Please see attached the organogram for the FOI Unit in Annex A.
The Scottish Government is committed to publishing all information released in response to Freedom of Information requests. View all FOI responses at http://www.gov.scot/foi-responses
