SIC Assessor’s role and salary: failure to respond within statutory timescales – On 25 January 2014, Mr Quinn asked the Assessor for Lanarkshire Valuation Joint Board (the Assessor) for information about the Assessor’s role and who paid Assessors’ salaries. This decision finds that the Assessor failed to respond to the request within the timescale allowed by the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA). The decision also finds that the Assessor failed to comply with Mr Quinn’s requirement for review within the timescale set down by FOISA.
The Commissioner has ordered the Assessor to comply with the requirement for review.
