Company numbers for all OGCbuying.solutions' suppliers

Office of Government Commerce did not have the information requested.

Dear Sir or Madam,

The company registration numbers of the OGCbuying.solutions' suppliers are not provided on your website (http://online.ogcbuyingsolutions.gov.uk/...).

Can you please provide me with the name and company registration number of each company currently on your OGCbuying.solutions' suppliers list.

Yours faithfully,

Mr McKinnon

Dear Mr McKinnon

I write in connection with your request for information dated 09/03/2009
which was received by OGC on 09/03/2009 . I note you seek access to the
following information:

* The company registration numbers of the OGCbuying.solutions'
suppliers are not provided on your website
([1]http://online.ogcbuyingsolutions.gov.uk/...).

Can you please provide me with the name and company registration
number of each company currently on your OGCbuying.solutions'
suppliers list.

Your request will now be considered in accordance with the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (the Act). You will receive a response within the
statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Act, subject to
the information not being exempt or containing a reference to a third
party. In some circumstances OGC may be unable to achieve this deadline.
If this is likely you will be informed and given a revised time-scale at
the earliest opportunity.

OGC's policy is not to charge for providing information where to do so
costs less than the "appropriate limit" [Note: The "appropriate limit"
means such amount as may be set by the regulations], which is currently
£450.

Where the cost of providing information would exceed £450, OGC will
generally not provide the information. However, OGC may be able to
provide some of the information requested if it can be supplied within the
"appropriate limit".

There may be a separate fee payable for the costs of copying and postage
if you require the information in hard copy. If is the case you will be
informed and the 20 working day timescale will be suspended until we
receive payment from you. If you chose not to make payment then your
request will remain unanswered.

Some requests may also require either full or partial transference to
another public authority in order to answer your query in the fullest
possible way. Again, you will be informed if this is the case.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in
OGC.

Should you have any further enquiries concerning this matter, please write
or contact our Service Desk on 0845 000 4999 or e-mail Service
[email address], quoting the reference number above.

Yours sincerely

Sarah Morris

Dear Mr McKinnon,

Thank you for your request below.

I am writing to advise you that OGCbuying.solutions' holds the information
you seek and therefore your request would be more appropriately addressed
by them. Consequently, we propose to transfer your request to
OGCbuying.solutions'. However, before we transfer the request, we request
your permission to notify them of your name and contact details.

Please confirm by response to this email that you are content for us to
transfer your name, contact details and request to OGCbuying.solutions'.

Please note that the 20-working days deadline for OGCbuying.solutions' to
respond to your request will start when I formally transfer the request
(which is likely to be the same day that I receive a response from you).
Please note that I cannot guarantee that OGCbuying.solutions' will provide
all or some of the information they may hold.

Please could you copy your response to the FOI Team (cc to this e-mail) so
it will be dealt with if I am out of the office.

With regards,
Tomina

Dear Tomina,

Based on your response dated 17 March 2009, I myself have submitted a new Freedom of Information request directly to OGCBuying.Solutions.

You do not need to transfer my request.

Yours sincerely,
