FOI and EIR
There is usually no charge for responding to FOI or EIR requests, unless the request exceeds above 18 hours of officer time.
Officer time is estimated at a rate of £25 per person per hour. If we estimate the cost to be more than £450 we will inform you of this and advise you on how to refine the request to reduce the cost to below £450.
If we estimate the cost to be below £450 we may charge for disbursements such as photocopying and postage. We will always advise you of this beforehand.
