Travel expenses of EIOPA Executive Director
Helen Darbishire made this Informationsfreiheit request to Europäische Aufsichtsbehörde für das Versicherungswesen und die betriebliche Altersversorgung
Dear European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority,
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 EIOPA’s Executive Director, 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 EIOPA’s Executive Director, 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 EIOPA 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.
