Dear Glyndŵr University,

As a student ant Glyndwr I find the cost of a replacement card to be beyond the costs involved in producing the product.

Could I please have a breakdown of the cost involved in producing the card and the profit margins involved.

Dear Freedom of Information Officer,

Your response includes an arvitrary figure for "Administrative Costs" that conveniently makes up the remaining costs associated. Please provide a breakdown of this cost as it seems it was just thrown in to make up the total to the £5.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Jackson,

There is no detailed breakdown of the £3.68 Administrative Costs for the
card production available.

A replacement card is charged for at £5.

As stated before the fee for a replacement card is set at £5 as a
disincentive to staff and students losing cards.

Other Universities charge more than £5 to replace staff and student
cards.

Kind regards,

Michael Williams
