Freedom of Information Charges

Some information will be provided free of charge as indicated in the Publication Scheme.  However, where a “£” sign appears in the Fee column a charge may be made for the provision of some of the information in the relevant section.  Such Fees will be kept under review.

Information included in the Publication Scheme will fall into one of the following categories:

1.             Documents published in full on the College website

(a)        There will be no charge by the College for documents printed by users from its website. The user will be responsible for meeting any charges made by their Internet service provider and their own printing costs.

(b)            Requests for a paper copy or multiple print-outs of information published on the web site will attract a charge to cover the cost of printing/photocopying and postage.  The exact cost will be advised at the time of your request and the charge will be payable in advance.

(c)            Requests for archived copies of documents which are no longer available on the web, may attract a charge for the cost of retrieval, photocopying and postage. The exact cost will be advised at the time of your request, and the charge will be payable in advance.

2.            Information available on external websites

Some external website addresses have been included in the publication scheme to direct users to sources of information which, although not published by the College, have some relevance.         St John’s College makes no charge for access to documents published on external websites, and cannot take responsibility for their content nor will we provide print-outs from these sites.

Users without Internet access are advised to contact the institution concerned.

3.         Hard copy leaflets or booklets such as College prospectuses and conference brochures.

Single copies of publications that the College would normally provide to enquirers free of charge will be supplied without charge or costs for postage.

Requests for multiple copies will attract a charge for postage. The exact cost will be advised at the time of your request, and the charge will be payable in advance

Some of these publications are on the internet and users with internet access are encouraged to make use of these versions.

4.            Information not available on the website

Some information included in the Publication Scheme has not been published in full on the website, typically because its format does not lend itself to electronic publication. A charge to cover the costs of the reproduction and postage of these items will be made.  The exact cost will be advised at the time of your request, and the charge will be payable in advance.
