This request is refused on the basis that providing this information itself would take in excess of 12.5 hours. The information requested cannot be generated through a standard report on the system.

Therefore Article 16 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 applies: A scheduled public authority may refuse to supply information if cost excessive. 

Exemptions and / or refusals applied to this request: 

Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011

Part 2

Access to information held by a scheduled public authority

Article 16      A scheduled public authority may refuse to supply information if cost excessive

(1)     A scheduled public authority that has been requested to supply information may refuse to supply the information if it estimates that the cost of doing so would exceed an amount determined in the manner prescribed by Regulations.

Regulation 2 (1) of the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014 allows an authority to refuse a request for information where the estimated cost of dealing with the request would exceed the specified amount of the cost limit of £500. This is the estimated cost of one person spending 12.5 working hours in determining whether the department holds the information, locating, retrieving and extracting the information.
