Spend over £25,000 from March to July 2019

FOI reference - FOI-4078
Date - 2 September 2019

Request

I am looking for some assistance with your organisation's Spend/Transparency data, available on the following weblink:
 
https://www.thepensionsregulator.gov.uk/en/document-library/corporate-information/spend-over-25000
 
There appears to be no file available for the month of March - July 2019. Could you advise when the file will be made available to view online? Would it be possible for you to email me a copy of the March - July 2019 file?

Response

I can confirm that we hold the information you have requested. However, we are unable to supply the information requested for the reasons set out below.

Information we are not able to supply

I can confirm that we hold the information you have requested. However, it is exempt from disclosure under section 22 of the FoIA. This is because the information is intended for publication at a future date.

We recognise the public interest in the promotion of transparency, accountability and the enhancement of understanding of our work.

This is why we already publish certain information relating to automatic enrolment which we consider to be in the wider public interest. In light of the number of similar requests for information we've received, using different timescales, terminology and interpretations of the legislation, we consider that it is not in the public interest to disclose this information in a piecemeal fashion as that could lead to inadvertent errors and inconsistencies. We currently regularly publish the declaration of compliance monthly reports and our AE commentary and analysis and quarterly bulletins. We review the information we publish in relation to automatic enrolment to ensure we provide both clarity and consistency around the data published in this area, and provide a regular published data source for all interested parties.

We have identified a technical issue which has delayed the publication of the information you have requested and is being rectified.

In light of the above, and having considered the public interest, our decision is to withhold the information, as this will be released on our website shortly.
