Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council,

Request you to please provide me with the latest Contract Register of Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council.

I am not able to find the information so that I can download the list in a CSV file . I would like to have a list of the Council's latest contracts register which will include the Council's current contracts. In that list, I need the information, like the contract title, start date, end date, extension month (if any), contract value, supplier name. Request you to please forward a list of a latest Contract Register.

Further to this, could you please guide me from where I will be able to get the latest Contract Registers published in the future.

Yours faithfully,
Lisa Wilson

FOI Team, Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council

Dear Madam,

I refer to your Freedom of Information request of the 22nd April 2019.

The Council does not keep a contracts register which contains all contracts that the Council has entered into. Unfortunately our computer system is not set-up to report on the information that you require. The time required to locate and retrieve the required information would mean the cost threshold set out in the Freedom of Information and Data Protection [Appropriate Limit & Fees] Regulations 2004 will be exceeded.

In accordance with Section 12 of the FOI Act 2000 and the associated FOI fees regulations, a public authority is not required to deal with a specific FOI request where in its reasonable estimation the time expended in doing so would be in excess of 18 hours of one or more officers accumulated time. Accordingly in light of the aforesaid please be advised that we are not prepared to comply with your request on this occasion.

If you are dissatisfied with the response to your request, under the Authority's FOI Policy, you may appeal in writing setting out the reasons why you think the decision is erroneous, to the Authority's Monitoring Officer at the following address:-

Head of Legal Services & Monitoring Officer Civic Centre Port Talbot
SA13 1PJ

In the event that you appeal and are dissatisfied with that response, you may then appeal direct to the Information Commissioner, whose address is:

Wycliffe House,
Water Lane,
Wilmslow,
SK9 5AF.

Yours faithfully
