Information Commissioner's Annual Report 2010/11

The Information Commissioner's Annual Report for 2010/11 has been published. A press release accompanying the report highlights the continued progress made by the ICO in reducing the time taken to investigate freedom of information complaints:
Today's annual report also highlights the significant improvements the ICO has made in the time it takes to handle freedom of information complaints. There are now no cases over 12 months old, compared with three at the end of 2010/11, 117 at the end of 2009/10 and 418 two years ago. Process improvements and changes to the ICO's organisational structure made during the year enabled the ICO to complete more decision notices than ever before without sacrificing quality and no increase in the rate of appeals. 
The report is available to download here. A webcast of the report's launch with a presentation by Christopher Graham is available to watch here.
