Number of Microsoft licences across the States of Jersey and related data (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 22 April 2015.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


How many Microsoft licences are there across the States and what is the total annual cost?


How many iPads have been issued to staff?


How many iPads belonging personally to staff are in use across the States?



Below is a breakdown of the Microsoft Licences held within the States of Jersey. We are unable to release the annual cost of Microsoft licensing, due to this information being deemed commercially sensitive. We are therefore applying a qualified exemption, Commercial Interest Article 33, of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011.
