Owen Thomas,

Dear Miss Parkinson

Thank you for your enquiry below.

As you may know, combined authorities are legal bodies setting up collaborative arrangements that that enable a group of two or more councils to collaborate and take collective decisions across council boundaries. Some administrative and support arrangements for combined authorities are provided by the participating authorities - as an example, Sunderland City Council provides an FOI management service to the North East Combined Authority.

In response to your enquiry I can confirm that Durham County Council currently provide procurement services to NECA, using (in line with the other 12 North East Councils) for all advertised procurement opportunities.

I hope this information is helpful.

Yours sincerely

O Thomas (on behalf of the North East Combined Authority)
Deputy Data Protection Officer
Sunderland City Council
