Dear Mr Hai

RSN20826

Thank you for your recent request made under the Freedom of Information Act. Please find the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority’s response below.

Can you tell me what media monitoring policies do you have?

Media monitoring is undertaken by the Communications, Marketing and Corporate Engagement Team as part of their daily work. No specific policies on media monitoring are held.

How much does it cost per year?

£5,500.00

Please note that this does not include staff time.

Can you publish all media monitoring reports produced since 2016?

We do not create ‘media monitoring reports’ as such. Emails are distributed daily to officers containing links to notable online articles and brief summaries of printed pieces. Given the frequency of these emails and the timeframe of your request, providing these to you would be an extensive exercise.

As defined by Section 12 of the Act, the cost limit for responding to a request under the Act for a local government body is set at £450, which is calculated at a rate of £25 per hour (totalling the equivalent of 18 hours’ work). When considering the cost of responding, the Combined Authority is able to take into account the time spent

a) determining whether the information is held;
b) locating the information;
c) retrieving the original record, and
d) extracting the requested data from the original record.

Should the cost exceed this appropriate limit, the authority has no obligation to fulfil the request.

For approximately the past year we have produced a weekly media and social report to the Metro Mayor and Directors. Should you wish to refine your request to receive these reports, we would be happy to process a new enquiry in line with the legislation.

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the right to ask for an internal review, which should be addressed to:
Jill Coule
Chief Legal Officer / Monitoring Officer
Liverpool City Region Combined Authority
[email address]

If you are not content with the result of your internal review, you also have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner, whose address is
The Information Commissioner’s Office,
Wycliffe House,
Water Lane,
Wilmslow,
Cheshire SK9 5AF
