Dear Mr Rogers

 

In response to your Freedom of information request number 6395, in which
you asked the following questions

 

 

1.    With respect to the announcement of a partnership with Cisco, as
outlined in:
[1]http://www.itpro.co.uk/strategy/29763/so...

Could the Council please advise which public procurement process was
followed to arrive at this arrangement, or if none was followed, why so ?

 

I can confirm that a search for the information has been completed.

 

1.    Unfortunately the wording on the website is slightly misleading by
not identifying that this is a pilot partnership at this time. As part of
this pilot all procurement processes have been adhered to, should the
pilot which involves the proving of the CICSO 'City Interoperability' or
'Situational Awareness' platform prove beneficial, then the provision of a
scaled up solution will be subject to a full public procurement process,
which includes inviting companies to submit an interest.

 

 If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your
request and wish to request a review of our response, you should write to
the Group Manager – Policy, Engagement and Communication, Corporate
Services Department, PO Box 6, Civic Centre, Victoria Avenue,
Southend-on-Sea, Essex, SS2 6ER. If you are not content with the outcome
of your review, you can make a complaint under the Council’s complaints
process by writing to Corporate Complaints Officer, Corporate Services
Department, PO Box 6, Civic Centre, Victoria Avenue, Southend-on-Sea,
Essex, SS2 6ER.

 

You can also apply directly to the Information Commissioner (ICO) for a
decision although generally the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have
exhausted the Council’s complaints procedure. The Information Commissioner
can be contacted at: The Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe
House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

 

Kind regards
