sd made this Freedom of Information request to Bristol City Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Bristol City Council,

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU)
2016/679)
comes into force in just over 1 year on 25/05/2018.

(1) When will each BCC department be compliant? Please supply a
breakdown showing department and date.
(2) What is the latest % complete for compliance so far for each department? Please supply a breakdown showing department and approx. %.
(3) What is the current expected cost for BCC to be fully compliant?
(4) how much of (3) has been spent so far?

Your initial response stated that you do not hold any recorded information in answer to the above request. Having reviewed your
initial response, you confirmed that you believe that your response
was dealt with correctly under the FOIA, but for clarity you would
like to add the following to your response:

You confirmed that there was no recorded information to answer this request. You did not have any recording mechanism set up to monitor and capture
each directorate’s percentage compliance as asked. You had
identified £90,000 to set up a project team which had yet to be
recruited although this was imminent. No analysis had yet been made
to determine the ongoing costs of GDPR to the organisation.

Could you please review my original questions and answer them if you are now able to. Can you also provide details on any expenditure and compliance if those questions cannot be answered. Your data officer should have this info.

Yours faithfully,

sd

You sent us a Freedom of Information request on 16/11/2017

Your request number is CRN00141342

Our reply to your request is:  

 

 (1) When will each BCC department be compliant? Please supply a breakdown showing department and date.

BCC as a whole will be compliant by the 25^th May 2018 and each BCC department is working to the same deadline.

 

(2) What is the latest % complete for compliance so far for each department? Please supply a breakdown showing department and approx. %.

This information is not held. The Council is already compliant in a number of areas, for example Privacy Impact Assessments are established in the Council’s project commissioning process and are required to be carried out in line with project investment gateways.

 

(3) What is the current expected cost for BCC to be fully compliant?

The current budget allocated to the project is £90,000, which covers dedicated project resources. There are however a number of potential unknown costs, for example for making the Council’s software compliant. These will be established as information becomes available from software suppliers. The full costs are likely to be considerably higher.

 

(4) how much of (3) has been spent so far?

The total spend up to 31/11/2017 is expected to be £17,600

 

This response should answer your request in full.
