The Information Commissioner’s Office is carrying out some research and conducting a survey to understand more about information governance frameworks in local councils. Last year 40% of FOI complaints and 10% of data protection concerns referred to the ICO related to local authorities and our audit work shows that this is often an area that councils struggle with.
The ICO is conducting a survey aimed at information governance leads at local councils.
The responses to this survey will be anonymous, the ICO will not be able to identify the sender or the council they work for.
For more information, and to take part in the anonymous survey please visit: https://ico.org.uk/about-the-ico/news-and-events/news-and-blogs/2016/09/information-governance-survey/
