Response:

 

We have been informed by the relevant department that to collate this
information would incur a commitment of resources in excess of the limit
of £450 set by the Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate
Limit and Fees) Regulations 2004 (SI No. 3244 of 2004), which equates to
18 hours of work. Section 12(1) of the Freedom of Information Act provides
that a public authority is not obliged to comply with a request where to
do so would exceed such a limit.

 

Due to the nature of the information you are seeking, and the way in which
it is recorded, it is difficult to suggest a way in which your request can
be refined to bring it within the appropriate limit whilst still yielding
meaningful results.  However, if you wish to resubmit a revised request we
shall, of course, consider it and ascertain whether it is possible to
collate any relevant information within the limit.

 

Should you wish to resubmit your request, please see comments below from
the relevant department seeking clarification on a few of the questions in
order for them to see if they can collate the information that Lancashire
County Council may hold.

 

 1. “Weekly cost of support for placing a person”.  Do you mean the cost
of the teams to make the placements or the cost the provider charges
us to support the person.
 2. We do not have a regional framework so this is a null return.
 3. Re Q8, do you mean “standard cost” or do you mean actual cost for
people who get 5, 10 hours etc.
 4. Re Q10, we do not have a preferred provider list and therefore no
regional framework.

 

We hope the above is useful.

 

Kind regards
