Dear Mr Jackson

 

Freedom of Information Act 2000

 

Further to your request for information under the Freedom of Information
Act an exemption has been applied as per the following:-

 

Section 12 – Request exceeds costs threshold

Section 12 of the Act provides that a public authority is not obliged to
comply with a request for disclosure where the cost of identifying and
retrieving relevant information would exceed the statutory limit of £450
(calculated as 18 hours at £25 per hour). In this case, information
requested is for a 14 month period which is in excess of 238,000 lines of
data.  Reports are run off in six-week batches and each batch takes
approximately 70 minutes to run.  For 14 months, this would total
approximately 12 hours.  In addition, it would take approximately two
hours per batch to determine if it contained personal information,
approximately 20 hours for all batches.  This would total 32 hours,
thereby exceeding the statutory limit.

 

Advice is provided on the attached response to assist you to reform your
request in order that the Council can provide you with the information you
require within the cost limits.

 

If you are unhappy with the way the Council has handled your request, you
may ask for an internal review.  Please contact [1][Wrexham Council request email]
01978 292000 if you require an internal review of your case.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision.  The Information Commissioner can be contacted at – Wycliffe
House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AS, telephone 0303 123 1113,

Dear Wrexham County Borough Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Wrexham County Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Payments over £500'.

Based upon the previous method the Council used was a simplified Excel Spreadsheet from within your Council financial records the rejection based on cost of data gathering does not seem justified. Council fiuncial records that are held centrally have the facility to produce a combination of any type of transaction and export either in Excel or CSV file.
I am therfore requesting a review based upon false cost calculations are not correct

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

Yours faithfully,

Derek Jackson
