Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50217364
  • Date: 22 June 2009
  • Public Authority: University of Wolverhampton
  • Summary: The complainant made two requests for information relating to students transferring between university courses. The University of Wolverhampton (“the University”) provided some information relating to the request and stated that further information may be held but estimated that the costs involved in determining whether any further information was held would exceed the appropriate cost limit. The Commissioner is satisfied that the University correctly refused to provide any further information as to do so would exceed the cost limit as set out by section 12(1) of the Act. However, the Commissioner also found that the University breached section 17(5) of the Act by failing to provide the complainant with an adequate refusal notice.
