Dear Sir or Madam,
I would like to request, under the Freedom of Information Act, the total amount received by the purchase of printer credit at the London School of Economics for the academic years 2006/7, 2007/08 and 2008/09.
I would also like to request, if possible, the number of printer credits purchased during these academic years.
I've spoken to colleagues in Reprographics and Purchasing and we are not
certain what you mean by 'printer credit'. Does this relate to the use
of photocopiers or of printers provided by the School?
London School of Economics
My enquiry relates to the use of printers provided by the School. Could you please confirm that you have received this reply.
I am currently out of the office and will be back on Monday 1/08/09. Please contact my colleague Kevin Haynes [LSE request email] if you have any urgent queries.
Alternatively, check our Publication Scheme for information that is already available http://www.lse.ac.uk/resources/LSEPublic...
Please access the attached hyperlink for an important electronic communications disclaimer: http://www.lse.ac.uk/collections/secreta...
Received and forwarded to the relevant colleagues of mine.
With reference to your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act, please find below the School's response.
As the request relates to printer usage, we have considered the request under the Environmental Information Regulations. This is the piece of legislation under which people can request information relating to the environment.
1. The total amount received by the purchase of printer credit at the London School of Economics for the academic years 2006/7, 2007/08 and 2008/09.
2006/07 - £216,008.08
2007/08 - £224,861.38
2008/09 - £232,020.47
Please note, it is difficult to differentiate the printing from photocopying amounts, so some of this will include purchase of photocopying credits as well.
2. The number of printer credits purchased during these academic years.
2006/07 - 8003005
2007-08 - 6339846
2008-09 - 8509384
Please note that some of these prints may have been paid for using credit purchased in previous years and some printing credit purchased last year may still be lying in student accounts waiting to be spent this year.
If you think that the information provided does not meet your request, contact me on 020 7955 6481 or write to Jenny Bone, Head of Planning and Corporate Policy Division, London School of Economics and Political Science, Houghton Street, London, WC2A 2AE. We will then review the response to your request and get back to you within 20 working days. You can also contact the Information Commissioner's Office http://www.ico.gov.uk/, though they expect the internal review to be carried out before receiving a complaint directly.
