Charging regimes and policies

Freedom of Information requests: in accordance with the Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations 2004, the College is not obliged to respond to a request for information where the cost of determining whether the information is held, locating, retrieving and extracting the information being sought is estimated to exceed £450. In terms of staff time, this is calculated at £25/hr. The College does not usually make a charge for reproducing documents, postage or for providing the information in the requested format. However, for large requests, or where the College has incurred substantial costs, the College reserves the option to charge the applicant. In this circumstance, the College will notify the applicant detailing the costs and asking them to be covered before the work is undertaken. The applicant is not required to accept the costs, and may instead choose to withdraw the request. Where charging regimes are listed elsewhere on the College website (for example, but not limited to, charges for books or publications, reproduction of Archive records), if requested under Freedom of Information, provision of the information will be subject to the same charge as listed on the website.
