Documents held on the eRDM system containing Sridhar, Sturgeon and phone call: FOI release

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

Information requested

For each of the following groups of words, how many documents in the Scottish Government’s eRDM system contain all of the words?
(1.) Sridhar, Sturgeon
(2.) Sridhar, Sturgeon, phone
(3.) Sridhar, Sturgeon, call


I have conducted searches in erdm and have identified the following results for each search:

Search Term

Number of Results

Sridhar, Sturgeon


Sridhar, Sturgeon, phone


Sridhar, Sturgeon, call


The information above identifies the total number of objects where the words have been found in the document name or in the latest version of the document that is marked as 'published' on erdm. Due to this, the number of results for the keywords can be large. This should not be interpreted as representing the number of documents recording interactions between those individuals. 

For example, if a document saved on erdm that summarises daily news stories includes the words 'Sturgeon' and 'Sridhar' then this will be included in the number of results. This does not mean the two words are used the same part of the document or in relation to one another.
