Dear Charles Babbage

 

Further to your e-mail below, requesting information under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000, I am now in a position to respond to your questions
as follows:

 

Under the Freedom of Information act, I would be grateful if you could
provide me with the following information.

Organisational Chart for your IT Department ( Shared Resource Service) Job
Description for each post including Salary and scale points

 

Under Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act, the Council is not
obliged to comply with your request. We estimate that the cost of
complying with your request would exceed the appropriate limit of £450.00.
This represents the estimated cost of one person spending 18 hours (at
£25.00 per hour) in determining whether the Council holds the information
and locating, retrieving and extracting it.

 

In relation to your request for Job Descriptions for each post, I have
been advised that there are 60 unique job descriptions and, depending on
the role and how long it has been established, it may be necessary to
search various locations.  In addition, job titles may have changed and
the job descriptions may therefore be filed under different titles, which
would add to the time it would take to locate the information.  In order
to provide you with the information, it would therefore be necessary for
an officer to undertake a search of various locations in order to locate
the job descriptions.  The files would then need to be collated and a zip
folder created.  It is estimated that, in addition to the time already
spent on this request, to undertake this exercise for all 60 Job
Descriptions would take in excess of 18 hours. 

 

Alternatively, if you were to make a new request within narrower confines,
then it may be the Council could comply with that request within the
appropriate limit, although I cannot guarantee that this will be the case.

 

Before determining that the request would exceed 18 hours, we had already
been provided with an organisation chart and I attach this.  In addition,
we have included below a list of posts and their salary Grades.
