Dear Communications Networks, Content and Technology,
Thank you for the documents, however, I think there has been, a mix-up between the documents. I've received a reply on a similar access to documents request regarding the speaking engagements of Commissioner Sefcovic (Ref. GestDem 2016/3649) and received the same documents from you. Are these documents regarding Commissioner Ansip of Sefcovic?
Thank you in advance for your answer,
Due to the holiday period in August, some delays may occur in the
treatment of your access-to-documents request, especially where the
processing of data requires the consultation of national administrations,
external organisations or other services.

Pendant la période des congés en août, certains retards peuvent se
produire dans le traitement de votre demande d'accès aux documents, en
particulier lorsque le traitement des données exige la consultation des
administrations nationales, d’organisations extérieures ou d’autres

Während der Ferienzeit im August könnten Verzögerungen bei der Bearbeitung
Ihres Antrags auf Zugang zu Dokumenten auftreten, insbesondere wenn die
Berarbeitung die Konsultierung der nationalen Verwaltungen, externer
Organisationen oder anderer Dienststellen erforderlich macht.
Thank you for your message.
Reference Gestdem 2016/3649 has been dealt with by the Secretariat General
(Unit D3) and refers to your request for a "list of, or copies of, all
invitations received to attend, or speak at, an event organised by a third
party, as received by Commissioner Maroš Šefčovič since 1 November 2014."
Additionally, you requested a "full list of all external speaking
engagements made by Commissioner Šefčovič since 1 November 2014. This list
should include the date and venue of the event, the host(s) and
organiser(s) of the event, and the topics discussed."
The above mentioned reply sent to you on 25 August 2016 addresses only VP
Šefčovič (not VP Ansip).
Feel free to send us the Gestdem reference of the similar reply you
mention in your email.
