Dear Mr Sausman

 

Thank you for your request for information from Airedale NHS Foundation
Trust which was received on 26^th April 2017.  Your request has been given
the Reference Number 2805. 

 

We will now proceed to process the request.  The deadline date for issuing
you with a full response is 24^th May 2017 .   We will endeavour to
respond to you in advance of this date and we will contact you if we
envisage delays or if we need more information from you.

 

Please note that under the Freedom of Information Act, some information
can be subject to exemptions, which means that the Trust does not have to
provide the information requested.  Some exemptions are “absolute” such as
personal information and some only apply where the public interest in
maintaining the exemption, outweighs that of providing the information.

 

In some cases, where identifying, retrieving and processing the requested
information requires more time than the appropriate “cost limit” of two
and half days work, we may refuse the request, or we may charge a fee.  If
the latter is the case, I will let you know and a Fees Notice will be
issued to you.  If you still wish to receive the information, you will
need to pay the fee before we proceed with your request. 

 

We will offer assistance and advise you if, by modifying your request, we
could provide you with some non-exempt or free of charge information.

 

Please contact me, quoting the Reference Number above, with any questions
you might have about your request.

 

With kind regards

Dear Mr Sausman
 
Further to your application to access information under the Freedom of
Information Act (Our Ref. 2805) please find our response below.   Please
accept my apologies for our late reply.
 
Whilst we do hold this information we are not able to disclose it to you. 
This is because the way we format the waiver means that the content
includes the amount paid as well as the company name etc.  We believe this
information is commercially sensitive and  disclosure should be exempted
under Section 43(2) of the FOI Act. 
 
In reaching this decision we have carried out a Public Interest Test.  In
favour of disclosure we found that it is in the public interest for the
Trust to be open and transparent about how public money is spent.  In this
way the public can be reassured that the Trust is behaving prudently and
appropriately and is obtaining best value.  Against disclosure, the
business of providing goods or services to the Trust is extremely
competitive and the Trust must operate within that competitive commercial
market.  We believe that it is not in the Trust’s best interest to publish
what payment has been made on this occasion as this could weaken our
bargaining position.  This could mean that in future the Trust would have
to pay more.  Our Public Interest Test therefore found against disclosure
of the requested information.
 
We trust you find our response helpful.  If you feel we are not complying
with our publication scheme, you feel your request has not been properly
handled, or you are dissatisfied, you can write to Bridget Fletcher, Chief
Executive at the address below to request a review.  You also have the
right to complain to the Information Commissioner under section 50 of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 if you are dissatisfied with the outcome
of that review.
 
You may use and re-use the information we have provided (not including
logos or photographs) unless identified as another party's copyright, free
of charge in any format or medium, under the terms of the Open Government
Licence which can be viewed via the link below.

We are continually working to improve our Freedom of Information service
and we will shortly send you a brief, anonymous, on line feedback form. 
We would be very grateful if you could take a few moments to complete and
submit this.
 
Yours sincerely
