Dear Scott

Thank you for your request for certain Air Conditioning related information under the Freedom of Information Act. I can acknowledge receipt of the request. As an Academy we are obliged to provide information under such requests. However before I can do this there are a couple of formalities I need to complete.

Firstly, in order for your request to be valid, we require a postal address from you - see "The Guide to Freedom of Information" (page 19) as published by the ICO. We will then write to you at this postal address and ask you to sign and return a copy of the letter, thus confirming that you have received the letter and that you agree to pay any charges (postage and photocopying costs) incurred by us in connection with the request. We cannot treat your request as valid until this process is complete. Our practice is to reply formally to your response by post, although we will subsequently willingly provide information by email, where held in electronic form. We will confirm what the charges are once we have gathered the information and will release it to you upon receipt of payment.

Secondly, I am sure you will be aware FOI requests can be time consuming on the part of the organisation dealing with the request, hence we have to make an assessment as to whether the request is vexatious. I would be grateful if you could confirm that your real name is Scott Davies, the reason for the request and whether you are making this request for your own purposes or on behalf of another organisation. This information is only being requested to allow us to make this assessment.

Finally, although this undoubtedly does not apply in your case, I would add we are aware a number of suppliers are using FOI to try to gain advantage in tendering for contracts. You should be aware where such information is deemed to be commercially sensitive we may not be able to provide it.
We are of course happy to receive expressions of interest from suppliers and to discuss opportunities to work with them. We often find this is a more productive way of developing a working relationship than using a blunt edged FOI request, which often puts additional strain on staff responsible for the areas concerned. You should be aware that if it proves to be the case that a Freedom of Information request has been used to try to obtain sensitive information, the school's policy is that persons or organisations making the requests are placed on a list of contractors with whom the school will not do business
