Dear Internal Audit Service,
I am writing to submit a Freedom of Information request regarding gender equality in your institution of the European Union. In order to assist you with this request, I am outlining my query as specifically as possible.
Please note, I define employees as including all staff employed within the institution, including but not limited to, directors, managers, translators, secretaries and support staff, including temporary workers.
I would like to know the following information
(a) The percentage of male and female employees of the European Commission
(b) The average pay of male and female employees of the European Commission
If you need further clarification, please contact me by email. My preferred format to receive the information is electronically, but I can accept hard copies.
Some parts of this request may be easier to answer than others, and in such case I would ask that you release available data as soon as possible rather than delay the entire request.
If FOI requests of a similar nature have been asked already, please include your responses to those requests. If the costs of processing this request exceed the limit in the Act, please advise what information you are able to supply within the cost limit.
I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request. I look forward to your response within 20 working days, as outlined by the statute.
Dear Mr Stanley,
Thank you for your email message of Thursday, 5 February in regard to access to information.
I am writing to inform you that your request does not fall within the remit of the work of the Internal Audit Service of the Commission.
We would therefore advise you to contact our colleagues in the "Europe Direct" offices so that they may process your request for information. Please follow this link:
With kindest regards,
