Dear Forestry Commission,

My name is Edward McMenamin, I am a Partnerships Manager for ESS Defence & Government Services. We are a specialised division of the Compass Group.

I would like to submit a Freedom of Information Request comprising of the questions below, so that we can proficiently anticipate your needs at such time when your catering/FM contract comes to tender.

ESS Government services has already successfully provided catering/FM contracts for numerous departments and would welcome the opportunity to take on further government contracts in the future.

Is a catering restaurant or café provided on the premises?
What are the addresses of the buildings in which the restaurants or cafés are located?
Who is the current catering incumbent of the catering contract?
What is the catering value? (Or is it nil subsidy?)
Are the catering facilities shared with other departments?
When is the catering service contract due for re-tender?
How will it be re-tendered?
Is the contract part of a PFI?
Is it part of an FM contract? (and if so, what services are also included in the contract?)
Who provides the other soft FM services?
Who will be the main person leading on the tender during the formal tender process?
When will the tender notice be issued?
Where will the tender notice be issued?
When is the tender due for release?
Is it on CCS framework?
Who in the department is responsible for the management of the contract?
How many people are there on site per day?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kindest regards,
Edward.

Dear Mr McMenamin

Thank you for your enquiry, by 'on the premises' I am assuming that you
are referring to our National Office building in Bristol.

We do not have any restaurant or café facilities on the site which means
that we do not hold any of the information you are seeking.

Yours sincerely

Richard Barker
Forestry Commission
