Subject:        Annual reports

          

 

Request:

I would be grateful if you could provide me with the following information in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Please tell me:

  1. How much it cost to commission, design and produce your Annual Report and Accounts in each of the following years: 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.
  2. How much it cost to print your Annual Report and Accounts in each of the following years: 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.
  3. How much it cost to distribute your Annual Report and Accounts in each of the following years: 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.

 

 

Response:

Our annual report and account are produced in-house with no additional design costs – the main resource being the time required to provide the content of the report.

 

The only printed reports are those for laying before parliament – again this is done in house on an office printer.

 

Distribution of the report is by email / publication on the internet.

 

It is difficult to assess how much employee time goes into the annual report – between the finance team and the Trust Secretary this would be a significant amount of senior management time.
