The Act Now FOI Helpline is designed to supplement your internal FOI/EIR expertise by acting as a "sounding board" or "signpost service" for you to discuss your FOI/EIR requests and possible responses. Our experts will guide you through the relevant area of law, discuss possible exemptions and how to deal with any complaints.
Public authorities are increasingly receiving complex and time consuming FOI and EIR requests. These involve consideration of a number of FOI/EIR exemptions as well as relevant Information Commissioner and Information Tribunal decisions. Every month there are around thirty such decisions to
consider and digest. Internal legal departments are often over stretched and dedicated FOI practitioners are hard to recruit. External legal advice in this area is very expensive and there are very few experts in this field with real experience of advising the public sector.
The helpline is managed by Ibrahim Hasan, who is renowned throughout the UK as one of the leading information law experts. At a time of increasing pressure on public sector budgets, the Act Now FOI Helpline is the most cost effective solution for your FOI/EIR problems.
