&DCC Paperless Office

Dear Mr Bailey

Further to my earlier email please see the attached guidelines for a paperless office. There are a myriad of benefits of a paperless office.

1.Better record keeping.

2.Environmentally Friendly

3.Less space required to store mountains of hard xopy papers which is a hugh fire risk.

4.Quicker access for the general public and ICO and court staff.

5.More efficient records for the ICO

6.More effective for audit control

7.More effective for case costing and auditing.

8.Less staff required

9.Quicker access for HM Tribunals.

10.More conducive to ISO 9000 and ISO 14000

There is absolutely no reason whatsoever that the ICO couldn’t run a paperless office from Initial FOIA Request thru’ to Upper Tribunal and beyond.
It is not rocket science.

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield
