We should clarify that we do not hold information with respect to a further 6 schools which have been built or maintained via PFI.

Where this information is held by Devon County Council, it is included on the attached spreadsheet. In all other cases, this information is not held by Devon County Council.

3) When did the project commence? Year is sufficient

This information is not held by Devon County Council; however to advise and assist, the year of completion is included in the spreadsheet.

4) Can you confirm the initial budget for each of the projects outlined in Q1/2?

5) Can you confirm the final account of how much each project in Q1/2 actually cost?

With respect to the budget and costing information for each project, to extract the information for each of the 602 individual projects would be a significant task, taking more than 15 minutes for each project. This would therefore take in excess of 150 hours to obtain this information and disclosure is therefore exempt pursuant to s.12 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
