Dear Birmingham City Council,

Just over one year ago your Arms-Length organisation ACIVICO tendered and awarded 4no Pod contracts to deliver the Birmingham Council and EDSI Reactive and Building works.

I understand that under the Act I am entitled to a response within 20 working days of your receipt of this request. And while I understand that some parts of the request may be easier to answer than others. Should this be the case, I request that you release information as soon as possible on each of the questions below.

1. What is the Total Spend on the Pod 1 Contract?
2. What is the Total Spend on the Pod 2 Contract?
3. What is the Total Spend on the Pod 3 Contract?
4. What is the Total Spend on the Pod 4 Contract?
5. What is the Split of orders raised between all Pod Contractors in Pod 2 & Pod 3?
6. What if any is the difference on the Final Account Sum compared to the Winning Tender sum for all works completed to date on POD 2 & Pod 3?
7. What if any Variation Orders have been raised against ongoing works on Pod 2 & Pod 3?

If my request is denied in whole or in part, I ask that you justify all deletions by reference to specific exemptions of the act. I also expect you to release all non-exempt material (I do not believe any part of the requested information should be exempt and I am asking for total costs and no commercially sensitive information has been requested.

I reserve the right to appeal your decision to withhold any information or to charge excessive fees.

I would prefer to receive the information electronically.

If you require any clarification, I expect you to contact me under your section 16 duty to provide advice and assistance if you find any aspect of this FOI request problematic.

Yours faithfully,

Thank you for the answers to my request.

I have one minor clarification regarding the 5th question?

Am I correct in saying that there are 5 contractors in Pod 2 and 4 in pod 3?

Yours sincerely,
