Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50125350
  • Date: 16 June 2009
  • Public Authority: National Police Improvement Agency
  • Summary: The complainant requested the contract plus any appendices and indexes for the IDENT system along with a list of all bidders and their bid submissions. The public authority released some of the information but withheld the remainder citing sections 23, 31, 40(2), 41, 43(1) and 43(2) of the Act. The complainant did not pursue her request in relation to any information which was withheld under section 23 or which was contained in one withheld schedule of the contract. The public authority withdrew its reliance on section 43(1) during the investigation. The Commissioner’s decision is that the exemptions at section 31(1), 40(2), 41(1) and 43(2) are not engaged. The complaint is therefore upheld. The Commissioner further finds that the public authority breached sections 1(1)(b), 10(1), 10(3), 17(1)(b) and (c) and 17(3).
