Printing Levels

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, University of Reading should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear University of Reading,

I am interested in the volume of printing at the University of Reading.

For the 2017/2018 academic year to-date, and the equivalent period in the 2016/2017 academic year, how many sides of A4 (or equivalent) were printed at the University? If possible, I would like this broken down by school / service.

Yours faithfully,

Mr B Howe

IMPS, University of Reading

Dear University of Reading,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of University of Reading's handling of my FOI request 'Printing Levels'.

I do not accept that it would take more than 18 hours to run a report on printing levels for the current University financial year, especially given printing (and billing for printing) has been outsourced to Konica Minolta (https://www.reading.ac.uk/internal/its/h....

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,
