Dear Ian Wolf, 
 
Thank you for your Freedom of Information request of 2nd January 2013.  I have responded to 
your questions in the order that they have been asked:  
 
Please provide the information you hold that covers any tender or procurement of Internet 
Access Devices (IAD) for Jobcentre Plus offices, so customers can use them to register on 
and use Universal Jobmatch, when they choose not use personal IADs they may own to 
prevent online tracking of personal work search activity. 
 
IADs were not procured specifically for access to Universal Jobmatch. 
 
Please provide an estimate of how many IADs exist in Birmingham Jobcentres and throughout 
England as a whole. 
 
Nationally the total number of Internet Access Devices purchased is 2176. 
 
Of that 2176, the following numbers of IADs were deployed into Birmingham/Solihull 
Jobcentres (14 sites): 
 
  Birmingham City - 4 
  Birmingham South West - 4 
  Birmingham Broad Street - 7 
  Chelmsley Wood - 4
