The complainant requested copies of risk registers held by the Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister (OFMDFM). OFMDFM refused the request under section 36(2)(b)(ii) and section 36(2)(c) of the FOIA. The Commissioner’s decision is that the exemptions are engaged, but that the public interest in maintaining the exemptions does not outweigh the public interest in disclosing the requested information. The Commissioner requires OFMDFM to disclose each version of the OFMDFM risk register since January 1, 2011.
