This is an information request relating to the cost of producing an annual gender pay gap report.
Please include the information for each of the following periods; 2019-20; 2020-21, 2021-22:
The cost of producing each gender pay gap report, including a breakdown of the cost such as the number of FTE staff working on the report. This should cover the full process of producing the report including research, drafting, proof-reading, communications etc.
Any internal assessments of the costs and benefits of producing the report.
No information held.
I can confirm that data gathering and writing of the Gender Pay Gap report is one of many tasks and reports which are carried out by Human Resources staff, none of whom are employed solely for this task.
Staff time dedicated to the creation of the report is not logged or recorded independently to that spent on other tasks, and it is not therefore not possible for us to provide a figure for staff costs incurred in its compilation.
