FOI request detail

CIRAS subscriptions

Request ID: FOI-1278-1718
Date published: 11 September 2017

You asked

Follow-up to FOI-1036-1718: On 1 August 2017, I asked a very specific question: "How much did TfL expend to cover its Bus Contractors' subscription costs to CIRAS for 2016 and, if applicable, for 2017?" and you responded: "The subscriptions were extended at no additional cost." While we've established that TfL indeed paid the CIRAS subscriptions for its Bus Company Subcontractors "at no additional cost" in 2016 and 2017, even the most cursory review of my original question will make it clear that I want to know exactly how much TfL paid in 2016 and 2017 to extend CIRAS to its Bus Company Subcontractors. Please inform me what those specific sums are.
