Contingent Labour ONE call off contracts

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Department for International Trade should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Sirs

Please can you provide under the Freedom of Information Act a copy of any Call Off Contracts entered into by your organisation with Capita Business Services Limited, Brook Street (UK) Limited and Hays Specialist Recruitment Limited for the provision of services under the Contingent Labour ONE framework (RM960).

For the avoidance of doubt, I am interested in any master agreements signed with Capita, Brook Street and Hays and not agreements for the provision of individual contractors.

To avoid any concerns about Data Protection, please feel free to redact the Contact Reference, Account Manager and the Key Personnel from section 3.1.

I look forward to hearing from you shortly.

Yours faithfully

Alan Jones

Dear Department for International Trade,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Department for International Trade's handling of my FOI request 'Contingent Labour ONE call off contracts'.

I made the request on 19 June. You acknowledged it the next day and said you would reply by 17 July at the latest. On 19 July I chased this up as I had had no response. It is now 4 August and your team still has not replied, so you are now three weeks overdue.

This is clearly unacceptable. The Freedom of Information Act establishes a legal timescale for responses and departments have an obligation to ensure they have the processes and staffing available to meet this. It is not a guideline for you to do what you can. Please ensure that a full response is forthcoming within the next few days, and that you then conduct a proper investigation of why your Information Rights Unit appears to be unable to meet its legal obligations.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...

Yours faithfully,

Alan Jones
