Dear European Central Bank,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am hereby requesting access to the travel expenses of ECB’s President, for the period 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2018 inclusive.

I am looking for documents that contain, for each of the trips, the following information:
- Place of origin and destination, and the amount spent on travel or transportation;
- Exact dates and duration of the trip;
- Amount spent on accommodation;
- Amount spent on subsistence;
- Other information, such as possible miscellaneous costs.

If the travel was by air taxi and a team of people were travelling, please also provide documents with details on the other travellers (at a minimum, names and job titles).

With respect to personal information contained in any documents that you might have, please note that the only information being sought here is the name of ECB’s President, something which is already in the public domain. This request does not seek access to any other personal information such as bank account details. Nor am I requesting data such as the office addresses, signatures or telephone numbers of ECB staff members.

Please also note that Access Info made the same request in the past with regard to a different period. You can find it here https://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/trav...

I remain at your disposition to answer any questions or clarifications you might have related to this request.

Thank you in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Helen Darbishire

Access to documents,

Dear Ms Darbishire,

We refer to your request of 05 July 2019, for access to European Central
Bank (ECB) documents.

We regret to inform you that due to ongoing internal deliberations, we
have to invoke Article 7.3 of Decision ECB/2004/3 on public access to ECB
documents and extend the time limit provided to reply to your request by
an additional 20 working days.

Furthermore, in order to allow the ECB to assess your request within the
time limits established by [1]Decision ECB/2004/3 on public access to ECB
documents, and in accordance with article 6.3 of this Decision, the ECB
proposes to break down your request into smaller batches and first deal
with the travel expenses of the ECB’s President in 2017. We will proceed
with the assessment of the second part of your request, namely the travel
expenses of the ECB’s President in 2018, as soon as our reply to the first
part of your application has been finalised.

We apologise for the inconvenience this delay may cause and we will keep
you informed on the progress of your dossier.

Yours sincerely

Access to documents,

Dear Ms Darbshire,

We refer to our message of 02 August 2019, informing you of the extension
of the deadline for response to your application for access to European
Central Bank (ECB) documents. As this request required wide cross
divisional collaboration within the ECB, due to summer holidays and
absences of colleagues from whom we were expecting the feedback it is
taking longer than anticipated.

The ECB is currently finalising its reply, which should reach you in the
coming days.

We apologise for the inconvenience this additional delay may cause.

Yours sincerely
