FOI applications for administrative reconsideration in Shanghai

Under the Shanghai FOI Rules, an applicant who is dissatisfied with the decision of an agency on his or her initial FOI request can apply to the next higher agency for administrative reconsideration. In 2006, the Legislative Affairs Office of Shanghai received 124 applications for administrative reconsideration, and accepted 106 applications. This Office made 79 decisions on administrative reconsideration, with 18 (17.2%) of those decisions reversing the original decisions, decreasing 5.6% from last year (22.8%).
