Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50144371
  • Date: 29 May 2008
  • Public Authority: Doncaster College
  • Summary: The complainant requested information from Doncaster College relating to any investigation reports it holds concerning the conduct or financial issues relating to its senior managers over a four year period. The college refused this request under section 40(3) of the Freedom of information Act 2000. The Commissioner has concluded that the college should have cited section 40(2) of the Act. In failing to do so it breached section 17(1)(b) however he has not ordered any remedial steps in this regard. He considers that the requested information is the personal data of the subjects of various investigation reports, and of other data subjects. He has determined that disclosure of the reports would be unfair and therefore would breach the first data protection principle and has ordered no steps to be taken in this matter.
