This research is the third strand of a study to inform the post-legislative review on the Freedom of Information Act (2000).

Read the first two strands (evidence review and interviews with officials).

The third strand was a costings exercise across central government departments and a range of other public authorities which aimed to provide an assessment of the staff time and costs required by these bodies to respond to FOI requests.
