Information Management, Norfolk County Council

Dear Jenna

 

Freedom of Information Act 2000 –Information Request ENQ- 258440-F1V1Q2

 

I refer to your request for information dated 29 July 2018.

 

You asked: From June 2016 to the day this request is processed, I would
like to know the number of overseas trips councillors, members of the
management team (including the chief executive), and council officers have
taken in the course of conducting council business. For each overseas
trip, please provide the following information:

 

- The date and duration of the overseas trip, as well as the country/city
that was visited

 

- The full name, title and position of the councillor/member of management
team/council officer who went on the overseas trip

 

- The reason or reasons why the councillor/member of management
team/council officer went on the overseas trip

 

- The cost of the overseas trip (please provide a breakdown of travel
costs, accommodation costs and expenses etc.)

 

- Please state whether the council met the costs of the overseas trip, or
whether an individual, group, company, consortium, charity or another
organisation met the costs.

 

- Please provide the full name of the individual, group, company, charity
or organisation that met the costs. If it is a group or consortium, please
state who or what composes the group or consortium.

Your request has been considered and is refused under Section 12 of the
Act, this is because the cost of locating and retrieving the information
exceeds the "appropriate limit" of £450 as stated in the Freedom of
Information & Data Protection (Appropriate Limit & Fees) Regulations 2004.

 

Whilst we do have a corporate travel booking system for the majority of
our travel booking, in order to be able to accurately answer your request
we would have to contact each service manager within the authority for
details of any flights booked outside of this system by their service.

 

Within the travel booking system will include flights booked, but not paid
for, by the County Council, e.g. those related to EU projects. In order to
remove these we would have to cross reference each flight booking with the
circumstances of the booking in order to determine whether the costs were
met by the County Council.

 

To do this would take more than 18 hours of officer time.

 

You may wish to refine and resubmit your request so that it reduces the
cost of locating and retrieving the information to within the "appropriate
limit".  Please contact me if you would like some advice on refining your
request. 

 

If you are dissatisfied with our handling of your request you have the
right of appeal through the Council’s internal review procedure by setting
out the grounds of your appeal in writing to:

 

[email address]

or Information Compliance Team

Room B18

County Hall

Martineau Lane

Norwich

NR1 2DH

 

An appeal should be submitted within 40 working days of the date of this
notice and should be identified as "FOI Appeal".

 

If you are dissatisfied after pursuing the complaints procedure, you may
apply to the Information Commissioner under Section 50 of the Act for a
decision whether your request for information has been dealt with in
accordance with the requirements of Part I of the Act.  Refer to the ICO
Website at: https://ico.org.uk/concerns/ for advice on how to report a
concern.  Or you can write to them at:
