Dear Ellie,


Thank you for your email.  In order to respond to your Freedom of
Information Request, please advise why you consider publication through
FOI is in the public interest as opposed to a commercial purpose. 


Commentary from the Information Commissioner’s Office states that:-


“Information about procurement of goods and services by a public authority
is usually considered to be commercially sensitive”


I would like to advise that Bridgwater and Taunton College and University
Centre Somerset are the same entity and therefore this response also
replies to your email sent to University Centre Somerset.
