Yves Madre #2

The request was refused by Human Resources and Security.

Dear Human Resources and Security,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, and further to Gestdem 2015-3664, I am requesting all documents which relate to any Staff Regulations applications made by Yves Madre to work for Farm Europe. In particular, I request copies of any application(s) that he has made to undertake a new professional activity at Farm Europe; and all documents (correspondence, emails, meeting notes etc) related to the authorisation of this new role.

If the authorisation process is not yet complete, will the Commission keep this request open until it has been completed?

Yours faithfully,

Vicky Cann

Dear Human Resources and Security,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Human Resources and Security's handling of my FOI request 'Yves Madre #2': GestDem 2015/6581.

I asked to see the full paperwork for the authorisation of Yves Madre's role at FarmEurope and it was not provided, nor was the information provided adequate.

Our evidence indicates that Mr Madre was involved in FarmEurope from May 2015, if not before. There are then important questions to be asked as to why authorisation was apparently only sought in August 2015. My original request on this matter (GestDem 2015/3664) was tabled in July 2015 which also failed to secure a full answer from the Commission.

It is important for me to see the original paperwork so that I can ascertain:
- what date Mr Madre declared as to when his work first started at FarmEurope
- what exchanges there were between Mr Madre and the Commission about this matter and why he did not apply before August, considering he was already familiar with the process to apply for authorisation for new roles
- whether Mr Madre sought authorisation for the role independently, or in response to a prompt from the Commission
- what investigations the Commission has done into whether Article 16 of the Staff Regulations has been breached in this case

These are important matters and the full paperwork should be released (minus confidential details such as email addresses) so that all is clear.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: http://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/yves_...

Yours faithfully,

Vicky Cann
