Access Info Europe and Transparency International

Dear Sir/Madam,

In line with the right of access to EU documents, and further to ECB Decision ECB/2004/3, we (Transparency International EU Office & Access Info Europe) are hereby writing to request access to all documents/records providing a detailed list of all the access to documents requests received by the European Court of Auditors in the calendar years 2011 and 2012, which should indicate in particular:

a) The subject of the request made (i.e. the specific document(s)/record(s) requested);

b) The (type of) requestor;

c) How the request was submitted/received (online form, direct email, via www.AsktheEU.org, phone, mail or other);

d) The initial decision on the request, including the basis upon which any refusals to grant access were made (prior to any confirmatory applications);

e) Whether the institution consulted with third parties (including other institutions and outside parties) prior to responding to the request;

f) Whether or not the initial refusal or partial refusal resulted in a confirmatory application;

g) Whether the confirmatory application was successful or partially successful (ie. it resulted in a partial revision of the initial response), or whether the confirmatory application resulted in a confirmation of the initial denial;

h) Whether or not partial access was granted to the documents;

i) Whether or not access to the entirety of the document requested was denied;

j) The time taken to deal with each request (i.e. including confirmatory applications, where applicable);

k) The number of times the deadline was extended, the amount of time it was extended for, and the reasons for the extension;

l) Whether the requester was asked to clarify or narrow their request, or to provide more information about themselves or about the reasons for their request.

Should an overview record listing the above-mentioned information for each individual request not be held by your institution, we would like to request the individual files related to all access to documents requests received in the calendar years 2011 and 2012 (i.e. the administrative correspondence providing insights to (a)-(l) above).

May we kindly request that the documents be provided in electronic format; where database records are provided, please provide these in an open, accessible format.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Yours sincerely,
Access Info Europe and Transparency International EU Office
