Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50164940
  • Date: 4 March 2010
  • Public Authority: Department for Children, Schools and Families
  • Summary: The complainant requested correspondence between DCSF, Partnership for Schools (PfS) and the London Borough of Camden regarding the latter’s application for Wave 5 of the Building Schools for the Future programme. DCSF disclosed some information but withheld parts of the information citing sections 36(2)(b)(i) and (ii), 36(2)(c), 40 and 43 of the Act. The Commissioner considers that DCSF correctly applied section 36(2)(b)(i) and (ii) and section 36(2)(c) of the Act to the information it withheld in this case. However, the Commissioner finds that DCSF wrongly applied section 40(2) and requires DCSF to disclose to the complainant the names of individuals previously withheld under section 40(2) of the Act. The Commissioner also recorded a number of procedural breaches.
