Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, please send me the
following Information;

How many Subject Access Requests (SAR), requested under the Data
Protection Act 1998, have you received in the last 12 months?

On average, how long does it take to deal with a SAR in your

What percentage of this time is spent redacting information?

Can I have a break down of your organisations staffing structure
for dealing with SAR requests. Within this I need:
a) A break down of the staff levels/grades that deal with SAR's and
the pay scale for these levels.
b) Time spent working on SAR's.

An example of the staffing structure request would be:
One 37 Hour Employee at Grade E at £20,000 p/a and One 14.5 Hour
Employee at Grade C at £15,000 p/a)

Approximately how much money is spent yearly (please use either the
last 12 months or the last financial year) on handling subject
access requests?

The Job Title of the member of staff responsible for decision
making surrounding SAR's and Data Protection

Yours faithfully,

Paul Gardener
