Process for evaluation of Hen Harrier Action Plan

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Natural England,

Please could I see all papers, correspondence etc to date related to the development of the evaluation of the southern reintroduction proposed in the Hen Harrier Action Plan. More precisely, at this point, I would like to see details of all discussion and communication related to the process of designing the evaluation, selecting the evaluators/researchers, costs, timescales etc. I am not at present principally seeking information about the specific evaluation criteria. I would like to see all papers related to the development of what might be called an 'invitation to tender' (though different language may be used in this context.) I would like to see all material discussing the process of developing such a document and/or more generally a process for selecting a research/evaluation team. Broadly, what are Natural England's proposals for soliciting research/evaluation proposals, how will proposals be sought, how will they be assessed, how will the winning proposal be decided, how will independence be secured?

Yours faithfully,

Alan Cranston
