University of Cambridge (Decision Notice): ICO 10 Apr 2014

The complainant made a freedom of information request to the University of Cambridge (‘the University’) for a copy of the Review Editors’ Reports of the Working Group One contribution to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 5th Assessment Report and related information. The University dealt with the request under both the FOIA and the EIR and said that the requested information was not held. The Commissioner’s decision is that as regards that element of the complainant’s request that falls to be considered under FOIA, the requested information is not held. For the information that falls to be dealt with under the EIR the Commissioner has also decided that the requested information is not held and therefore the regulation 12(4)(a) exception applies. The Commissioner requires no steps to be taken.
Section of Act/EIR and Finding: FOI 1 – Complaint Not upheld
