University funding scrutiny panel review costs (FOI)

University funding scrutiny panel review costs (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey on behalf of the States Greffe and published on 17 April 2018.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


The scrutiny panel for the funding of university costs hired Mr Bahram Bekhradnia for an independent review.

Please can you tell me what was the total cost of hiring Mr Bahram Bekhradnia?


The Education and Home Affairs Scrutiny Panel engaged Mr. Bahram Bekhardnia for the purpose of two Scrutiny Reviews relating to the funding of university costs. The first led to the Panel’s report ‘Tertiary Education: Student Finance’ (S.R.2/2017) in 2017 and the second to the 2018 report, ‘Tertiary Education – Student Finance Proposals’ (S.R.5/2018).

The breakdown of the costs of using Mr Bekhardnia were as follows:

2017 Review

Fees £23,000

Expenses (Travel, Accommodation and Meals) £681.92

2018 Review

Fees £4,997

Expenses (Travel, Accommodation and Meals) £737.90

The total cost of engaging Mr Bekhradnia for these two reviews was therefore £29,416.82.
