Confidential?[edit source]

It's disappointing to see how many of these reports are confidential. :-( I was particularly interested to see the grants report, given my involvement in the past with that work, and obviously I would like to be able to see the living paths report given my involvement in the steering group of that project. Please could these reports be made public? Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 23:47, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

I have highlighted 12 reports as "confidential".[1] It should be blatantly obvious to the board of trustees that when half of the reports going to the board from operations are held in secret, this is no longer an "open" board meeting and the charity has failed to meet the value of openness that is written into the Mission ("To be transparent and open").

I'm sorry Mike, but those two reports contain confidential information on ongoing negotiations and personal details. Richard Nevell (WMUK) (talk) 10:15, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
The Grants report were not made publicly available because it contained information that is not-yet public. The full report would be made available when that is no longer the case. In the meantime, I have uploaded a redacted version you can have a look at. -- Katie Chan (WMUK) (talk) 10:42, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
Thanks Katie. :-) It would be nice if having redacted versions of confidential reports available here became the norm. Mike Peel (talk) 15:07, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
I've left a comment on the grants recommendations at File talk:Review of current microgrants and maccrogrants process, December 2013 (redacted).pdf. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 20:19, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
