FOI Request - SDS Information
I am currently collating information with regards to current usage of the Scottish SDS system. Could you please answer the following question:
From your records could you tell me the number of SDS recipients within your Local Authority who were recorded as being under options 1, 2, 3 and 4 at the date on which you access your system to check this information. Please show the number of SDS recipients allocated to each option separately.
This information is exempt under Section 12 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002; excessive cost. Currently we do not specifically record this information therefore it would involve manual searching of our systems against every application.
A link to monitoring statements which we report to committee each quarter can be found here (pg 11; CommsS705-708).This information indicates the number of people who have chosen each option on their Support Plans within that quarter.
