2 May 2010

Dear Ministry of Justice,

I understand from a response here -
http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/we...,
that you dealt with the website, and therefore the part of my
request before 1 October 2009.

Can you please detail, for each year since your public website was
launched, how much money has been spent on creating, developing,
and running it; including every separate version of it since it
began. Please break this down by each separate website you run.

Where possible, please break these costs out by function (for
example, development, design, updates, changes, hosting,
co-location, domain registration, licensing etc).

Where the costs have been incurred with external providers, please
list the companies in question.

For internal staff time, if this is not recorded and/or charged
explicitly, please provide estimates based on salary/overheads and
time of people involved.

I would also be grateful to receive full disclosure of the
tendering process including proposals of all unsuccessful bidders.

Please also detail future budget allocations for public websites
where these have been considered.

Yours faithfully,

Henry Kitt

Dear Henry Kitt,

SUBJECT: Freedom of Information Request

Thank you for your correspondence of May 2, 2010, in which you asked
for information about the cost of the MoJ website under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (FOIA) from the Ministry of Justice (MoJ).

You will receive a response from us by June 2, 2010. Your request has
been passed to the appropriate business unit within the MoJ, and they
will write to you with their decision by this date.

The FOIA does provide a number of exemptions. A qualified exemption
requires that before relying on it we must consider the public interest
test. If the information you have requested is covered by a qualified
exemption(s) under FOIA, the Department is allowed to take longer than
20 working days to respond. This is because in such circumstances we are
required to consider the public interest issues when deciding whether or
not to disclose the information requested.

If more time is needed to consider the public interest issues under a
qualified exemption(s), we will write to you and inform you of the
revised date you can expect to receive a response to your request.

If you have any queries regarding this request please do not hesitate to
contact us. Please quote ref: FOI/64935/10 in all future correspondence.

Yours sincerely,

Darren Over
