Dear Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency,

Request FOIR3677 asked for the financial calculation behind the costings of private parking company requests for keeper data.

This was not provided. Instead, it was stated that the cost
per enquiry was £2.84, broken down as follows:

Direct costs (including salaries, postage and printing) £1.46
IT costs £0.78
Overheads and development costs £0.60
Total Unit Cost £2.84

1) Please provide the full, detailed calculations used to produced these costings. These must exist, as the breakdown is so precise.

2) If not included in the calculations please include for each member of staff whose salaries are included in the 'direct costs' category, their job titles, pay grades and the percentage of their time costed against PPC keeper requests.

3) If not included in the calculations, please state the total cost of PPC keeper requests, the total number of requests and the accounting period (or otherwise) from which the figures were used.

4) If not included in the breakdown, please list all other services which share the same IT, overheads, development costs, together with the contribution each service pays for the services.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Shipp

Dear Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency's handling of my FOI request 'Cost of private parking company keeper enquiries'.

You stated in your reply 'There are no separate calculations' but also
'The unit cost calculation for parking company enquiries is based on the DVLA costing model.'

Please therefore supply
1) the 'DVLA costing model' and
2) the data that it was run against to provide the figures

This will be sufficient to answer the FoI request as I can then break this down myself.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...

Yours faithfully,
