3. Unlike tablets, there is no contract for e-book readers so there isn't a single supplier of these devices.  Therefore this information is exempt under section 12 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002- Excessive cost of  compliance. To extract the information on e-book readers from either the requisitions system or the FMS system would involve searching all purchase receipts for the time period stated which would be in excess of the time allowed for completion under FOISA.
