Department for International Development (Central Government): ICO 22 Mar 2018

The complainant submitted a request to the Department for International Development (DFID) concerning allegations about Development Aid from People to People (DAPP). DFID confirmed that it held information falling within the scope of the request but explained that it needed additional time to consider the balance of the public interest test. To date, DFID has failed to complete its public interest test deliberations in relation to the request. By failing to complete these deliberations within a reasonable timeframe the Commissioner has concluded that DFID has breached section 17(3) of FOIA in respect of its handling of this request.
FOI 17: Complaint upheld
