We have now considered your request for information and although we do hold the information that you have asked for, unfortunately it is exempt under section 40 of the Act and will not be released.

Section 40(2) of the Act allows us to withhold information if it relates to someone other than the data subject and where disclosing the information would contravene the principles of the Data protection Act 1998.

A performance review is an assessment of an officer’s personal ability to perform a particular task or sets of tasks. This is regardless of the position or seniority of the officer. The information you are requesting is personal data. Due to this, the information you have requested is exempt under the above Section.
