VPA maintains a network of regional FOI coordinators, journalists who are knowledgeable on FOI issues. If you have a problem or question, don't hesitate to call the coordinator in your region. Or if, for competitive reasons, you don't want to contact the coordinator for your region, feel free to contact any other.
