Hackney Council automates FoI responses

Dear all,

I just saw this FOI-related article and thought to share - mySociety working with Hackney Council to design and make a Freedom of Information management system (FOI for Councils)

“Hackney Council has begun to use a new digital system for managing freedom of information (FoI) requests that includes the capacity to provide automated responses.”

Article from mySociety explaining how it works: https://www.mysociety.org/2018/09/13/foi-for-councils-hackney-goes-live/
