Art House Jersey funding bid (FOI)

Art House Jersey funding bid (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 05 December 2018.
Prepared internally, no external costs.

​Request

Please could you release the funding bid made by Art House Jersey which was recently granted £160,000 (from a requested £191,000). This should include the bid document submitted and the scoring mechanism applied by the board that appraised this bid. Please can you release the funding bid that supported the successful application for £50,000 for evaluating the cultural provision in Jersey? This should include the scoring mechanism applied by the board that appraised this bid

Response

Art House Jersey submitted a business case to the Growth, Housing and Environment Department (GHE). That Department, in turn, submitted a request to the States Treasury and Exchequer Department (STE) for additional funding. This request was submitted in response to STE requiring all departments to notify it of urgent funding pressures for 2018 and 2019.

The business case provided by Art House Jersey is considered exempt from publication under Articles 26 (Information supplied in confidence) and 33 (Commercial Interests) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011.

The request for funding submitted by GHE to STE contains confidential and commercially sensitive information so is considered exempt under Article 26 and Article 33.

The Investment Appraisal Board (which provides advice to the States Treasurer and Chief Executive Officer, who in turn advise the Minister for Treasury and Resources) does not use a scoring mechanism.

The recommendation to the Minister for Treasury and Resources to allocate £50,000 for evaluating the cultural provision in Jersey was not made in relation to a specific request.

Article 33      Commercial interests
