- Appendix 1 for Information Governance Quarter Two Performance and General Data Protection Regula, item 6 PDF 154 KB
Martyn Sargeant, Head of Public Service Reform presented the report on the performance of Information Governance for quarter two (July to September) of 2018/2919. The Council continued to have nationally leading performance in its response to Freedom of Information/ Environmental Information (FOI) requests. The Council was also maintaining levels in its response to Subject Access Requests (SARs).
The Chair reported that with the launch of WV Insight, the open data platform it was envisaged that the number of FOI requests would reduce. She had asked for this to be monitored. The Chair also placed on record her thanks to the Information Governance team for ensuring that the Council continued to maintain the high response rates for FOI and SARs requests.
Councillor John Reynolds suggested that the Council contact Wolverhampton University and the Colleges, the media, and other local councils, highlighting the potential benefits for their work and research from using WV Insight compared to them seeking the information through FOI requests to the Council. Ian Fegan, Head of Communications would be working with the colleges in the new year to make them aware of the platform and its capabilities.
