Time extended to April 15, the 101st anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. Not a very hopeful sign.

Dear Research and Innovation (RTD),

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Research and Innovation (RTD)'s handling of my FOI request 'Salary and expenses payments to Commissioner Máire Geoghegan Quinn'.

I have had no reply to my request, apart from a holding communication that extended the deadline - which then expired on April 15, 2013. I am very dissatisfied and now wish to see this information as a matter of priority.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Yours faithfully,

Senan Molony

Dear Mr Molony,


Thank you for your email of 27 May 2013 regarding the status of your
application for access to documents which was registered under reference
number Gestdem 2013/1196.


We would like to kindly draw your attention to the fact that, as explained
in the letter of the Secretariat General of 5 March 2013 signed by Ms
Schiltz, your request was transmitted to the Directorate General for Human
Resources (hereinafter 'DG HR') for reply.  This reattribution resulted
from the Commission's standard procedure according to which applications
for access to documents concerning a Commissioner's salary and expenses
payments are handled by DG HR.  This explains why you have not received
any reply from DG RTD.


However, according to the Commission's records, DG HR sent you its
official reply to your application on 15 April 2013 at 6:22 pm.  Therefore
we would truly appreciate if you could check your inbox again. The subject
of the email is as follows: Ares(2013)698607 - Réponse à GESTDEM délai
21-03-13-Demande d'acces aux documents - MOLONY - Gestdem 2013-1196 ---
Réattribution DG HR (PMO).


Please do not hesitate to let us or DG HR know if you still cannot find
the email in question, in which case we trust that DG HR will be pleased
to send it to you again.


Yours sincerely,



Head of Unit
