At: [Authority name]

Dear FOI (Right to Information) Officer,

This is not exactly a Freedom of Information/Right to Information request. I'm writing each university in the country informally about their information access. I'd be most appreciative if you would tell me, is your FOI disclosure log up-to-date? If it is not, how out-of-date is it ... how many requests behind? And when do you expect it to be brought up-to-date?

Thank you.

Good afternoon Mrs Gale,
Our disclosure log is completely up-to-date and it is our practice to
update it after the appeal period has expired on an appropriate decision.
In practice, there are few entries in our log. The University receives
less than 10 applications a year and the majority of them are made by
individuals for information concerning processes (e.g. student misconduct
or staff academic progression) which affected them personally so the
information released tends not to be interest to the public in general.
That said we do, of course, consider whether that is the case for each and
every application.
Please let us know if you require anything further.
Kind regards,
Lauren Schneider
