Dear Sir or Madam,

Can you please detail, for each year since your public website was launched, how much money has been spent on creating, developing, and running it.

Where possible, please break these costs out by function (for example, development, design, updates, changes, hosting, co-location, domain registration, licensing etc). Where the costs have been incurred with external providers, please list the company in question. For internal staff time, if this is not recorded and/or charged explicitly, please provide estimates based on salary/overheads of people involved.

Yours faithfully,

Nick

North Down Borough Council

Dear James,

Thank you for the information provided. I am a little confused by the "2009 (to date)" row - is this costs that you know you will incur next year?

Also, can you clarify why domain registration costs shot up so much last year? If anything the costs involved here should be coming down, so can I assume that the council registered a new set of domains? Can you please supply a list of all domains registered by the council?

Can you also please clarify what the "Other" column is?

And finally can you explain the difference between "Changes" and "Updates"?

Thanks,

Nick
