Been thinking about the situation in Rotherham regarding Freedom of Information requests, given that Rob’s FOI 372 is the 372nd request for information in 2011, I assume.
There is the very real chance of unnecessary duplication. especially for the more contentious areas of public policy.
How about RMBC making all FOI requests and appropriate responses available on the, all singing, all dancing, website of theirs?
Talking of which, the website search is not improving, documents are not properly indexed, missing or so out of date as to render them useless. Resorting to FOI’s because publicly available information cannot be found, will only make things worse! My advice to who ever is responsible for this woeful website should, get a grip, pronto!
