For schools that are looking for the easiest possible way to stay within the data protection rules while they focus on the day job, Accordio’s outsourced DPO as a Service is the low-cost, flexible answer.
For a fraction of the cost of appointing your own DPO (even if you could find one – figures show the country has 37,000 fewer than it needs), Accordio will provide comprehensive support for a low annual fee, allowing the staff to focus on giving pupils the high quality education they deserve.
Using Accordio will give you the reassurance that your data protection and information governance responsibilities are being handled by an experienced public sector practitioner at a fraction of the cost of making a dedicated appointment, with the efficiency gains offsetting the already low cost.
This cost-effective, dependable service has built-in flexibility, too. Schools pay a one-off annual fee that will in many cases cover all the support they need, but they can also buy more time – at a reduced hourly rate – if they need additional advice.
We can also provide additional peace of mind by helping you deal with information requests made under the Freedom of Information Act or Environmental Information Regulations.
With prices starting at just £500 per year for the outsourced DPO service and just over £1,000 for an extensive data audit, Accordio offers your school an affordable route to peace of mind.
