Dear Ms Hitchcock

 

TfL Ref: 2695-1718

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 20
December 2017 asking for information about the new contract specifications
for H25.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act and our information access policy.  I
can confirm we do hold the information you require.

 

In accordance with the FOI Act, we are not obliged to supply some of the
information as it is subject to a statutory exemption to the right of
access to information under section 43(2). In this instance the section
43(2) exemption has been applied as the contract has not yet been awarded
and as it is still an active tender, the submissions are still being
considered.

 

In this instance the section 43(2) exemption has been applied as
disclosure would, or would be likely to prejudice our commercial
interests, as well as those of the bidders for this contract. Disclosure
of their pricing information and submissions could hinder the ability of
these companies being able to competitively tender for similar contracts
in the future as well as hinder TfL’s ability to negotiate the best value
for money for similar services in the future.

 

The use of this exemption is subject to an assessment of the public
interest in relation to the disclosure of the information concerned. We
recognise the need for openness and transparency by public authorities,
particularly where the expenditure of public money is concerned, but in
this instance the public interest in ensuring that we are able to obtain
the best value for public money outweighs the general public interest in
increasing transparency of our processes.

 

We do publish tender results on our website here:
[1]https://tfl.gov.uk/forms/13923.aspx in line with our transparency
policy. There is a short period of time between the tender being awarded
and the results published.  We expect the results of this tender to be
available around end April 2018.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Ms Hitchcock

 

Our Ref:          FOI-0038-1819

 

Thank you once again for your request received on 3 April 2018 asking for
information about the contract specifications for the H25.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act and our information access policy. 

 

Unfortunately, from the description provided, we are unable to identify
the information you require. Some information has now been published on
our website, including the number of tenders:

 

[1]https://tfl.gov.uk/forms/13796.aspx?btID...

 

With regard to the contract specifications, if you could please provide a
more detailed description of the information you are seeking together with
any other details you think might help us locate the information you
require. For example, do you wish to know the type of bus used (single/
double deck), make/model (e.g. hybrid), required frequency of the route?

 

The FOI Act allows you to request recorded information held by Transport
for London (TfL). There are limits on the time that TfL are required to
spend determining whether TfL holds the information you are requesting and
the time spent locating, retrieving and extracting it. Therefore you
should identify the information that you want as clearly and concisely as
you can, specifying the types of document that you are looking for. You
might also consider limiting your request to a particular period of time,
geographical area or specific departments of TfL.

 

Although your request can take the form of a question, rather than a
request for specific documents, TfL does not have to answer your question
if it would require the creation of new information or the provision of a
judgement, explanation, advice or opinion that was not already recorded at
the time of your request.

 

Please note that the 20 working day deadline for responding to your
request will depend on when we receive satisfactory additional
information to help clarify your request.  

 

If we hear nothing further from you by 2 May 2018 your response will be
treated as a new request.

 

In the meantime, if you have any queries or would like to discuss your
request, please feel free to contact me.

 

Yours sincerely
