Devon County Council does not record the number of displays (monitors) deployed so we therefore do not hold this information.

4. How much did you pay for each laptop, desktop, tablet and display product?

We do not hold a central record of this information.   To obtain this information would require an individual review of the 4,998 purchases referred to in our response to question and the monitors as well.   Allowing for a 5 minute review for each purchase, this would take approximately 416 hours.  This is in excess of the appropriate limit of 18 hours and, therefore, pursuant to s.12 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, we are not obliged to provide this information.

The next hardware refresh has not been scheduled. Its scope, format and timing is due to be considered in the first quarter of 2021 as part of the DCC ICT Roadmap.

6. Do you normally purchase equipment and services or as a capital?

Bulk device purchases are generally capital expenditure. Ad-hoc purchases are usually revenue.
