Scope and content

Series consists of case files of freedom of information requests received by the Office of the Premier between 1994 and 1995. All files consist of freedom of information requests in which the response was appealed by the applicant to the Information of Privacy Commissioner for review of the decision.

The files in this series usually consist of correspondence between staff and the applicant, a copy of the original application and forms documenting the status of request, correspondence between the ministry and the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner (OIPC), submissions to the OIPC, correspondence with the Legal Services Branch, and a copy of the OIPC order. The files also include photocopies of the requested pages, some of which have been highlighted to show what has been severed in a document.

The files are arranged by a file number that includes the year followed by a sequential number. All files were also classified as 292-30 in the Administrative Records Classification System (ARCS).
