The complainant has requested Highbury College (the college) to disclose the total expense claims for the previous five academic years, starting 2014/15, made on the principal’s corporate card and all accompanying receipts. The college refused to comply with the request citing section 14(1) of the FOIA on the basis that it was vexatious. The Commissioner’s decision is that the college is not entitled to rely on section 14(1) of the FOIA to refuse the request. She therefore requires the college to issue a fresh response in accordance with the FOIA to the complainant, which does not rely on section 14(1).
