Dear Mr. Berongoy, This pertains to your FOI Request on 10 December 2021 via the eFOI Portal with Tracking no: #TAPI-851052146295. In your request, you would like to have a copy of a document or video about UNLAD CATEGORY Bark Scale Anti Cancerous Lesion Finalist Question and Answer Portion during the 2021 Regional Invention Contest and Exhibits (RICE) in CALABARZON (Region IV-A). While our aim is to provide information whenever possible as stated under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information, we regret that your request falls under Item No. 5 of Section 3 (General List of Exception) on Information, documents or records known by reason of official capacity and are deemed as confidential. Said video, as well as the score cards and rating sheets, contains how the judges have evaluated your entry in the 2021 RICE in CALABARZON and is deemed as confidential as it involves deliberative process privilege. Likewise, your request also falls under Item No. 1 of Section 4 (DOST-TAPI List of Exception) since it involves Transactions with Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDA). The Judges for the 2021 RICE in CALABARZON have signed an NDA. Hence, your request is DENIED. For further assistance, you may review the FAQ section of the eFOI site at https://www.foi.gov.ph/help. If you are unhappy with this response to your FOI request, you may ask us to carry out an internal review of the response by writing to the Office of DOST Secretary.
