FOI and breach

  • 1.  FOI and breach

    Posted 10-20-2020 08:26 AM
    Good morning ~  Our facilitiy uses a template for the investigative process to determine if a breach has occurred. It may or may not turn out to be an impermissable disclosure (breach).  The question if have for this group is whether or not this report is something that would be released / included in an FOI request?

    Any information you can provide is greatly appreciated!!

    In a previous Local Government position, we would run all FOIA and CFOIA requests through our County Counsel. Very often your investigations of breach may be under privileged with them. These would be argued by Counsel as non-releasable.
