None of which are we contracted to for:

•             Could you also let me know who much you pay in fees to these
agencies to be part of the agreements (if any).

There are no set fees individual to each booking.

 

•             Finally, do you have a headcount for the staff these
agencies are providing to you and how much they are paid?

Please see the attached spreadsheet for how much the Trust has paid each
agency for the financial year 2012-2013.

Unfortunately we are unable to provide a headcount of the staff these
agencies provided as this is not recorded centrally. Therefore to gain
this information we would have to manually go through all invoices to
these agencies, which we believe would exceed the 18.5 hour limit provided
by the legislation.

The appropriate limit

Section 12 of the FOIA provides an exemption from a public authority’s
obligation to comply with a request for information where the cost of
compliance is estimated to exceed the appropriate limit. The appropriate
limit is the key concept concerning fees.

The Fees Regulations state that this cost limit is £600 for central
government, legislative bodies and the armed forces (ie Part 1 of Schedule
1 of the FOIA) and £450 for all other public authorities.

 

Hopefully this answers your request.
