Readers have asked for a method to help fund our FOI requests and we have sought to facilitate that. FOIs are costly:
FOI request: €15 (non refundable)
FOI internal review: €75 (non refundable)
FOI Information Commissioner appeal: €150
Search and retrieval fee, where necessary: €20.95 per hour.
While under Environmental Regulations:
AIE request: free
AIE internal review: free
AIE Information Commissioner appeal: €150
Both of us have access to this Paypal account. Money will be drawn down periodically to cover FOI costs, and sometimes CRO data. We have added this information to the spreadsheet below, and it will be updated periodically.
