This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Sir or Madam,

According to the Statement of Accounts 2007-2008, Cambridgeshire County Council entered into a contract with Donarbon Waste Management Limited on 17 March 2008 for the period of 28 years.

Please can I see a copy of it.

Yours faithfully,

Julian Todd.

FOI, Cambridgeshire County Council

Dear Mr Todd,

Thank you for your request for information.

As I am sure you are aware, the Waste PFI Contract is a very large
document and sending it via email is not a practical option. I am happy
to copy the documents onto a CD and post it to you.

Please could you provide me with a postal address to send the CD to?

I await your response.
Kind regards

Sarah Priestley

Dear FOI,

Thanks for your reply.

Unless the document contains binary information (images, movies, sound) it is rare for it to get larger than 1Mb. Can you give me an estimate of how large it is? I understand that my mail system can receive files of up to 20Mbs without any problem.

If emailing still remains a problem, I can arrange for a friend in Cambridge to collect it on a USB stick and save the postage.

Yours sincerely,

Julian Todd.

FOI, Cambridgeshire County Council

Dear Mr Todd,

The Waste PFI Contract is made up of around 48 Schedules each saved in
PDF format, one of which is around 190MB.

I am happy to copy the information onto a CD for collection rather than
posting, if you would prefer.

Kind regards
Sarah.

Dear Sarah,

My friend, Francis Irving, who is one of the developers of the WhatDoTheyKnow system and lives in Cambridge, says he can phone you shortly to arrange a collection of the CD or on any other media form.

This presents a challenge to the system, so makes the issue quite interesting.

Yours sincerely,

Julian Todd.

FOI, Cambridgeshire County Council

Dear Mr Todd,

Please could you confirm that you have received the CD containing the
Waste PFI Contract. Mr Irving arranged to collect the disc on Friday
29th August.

Thank you
Sarah.

I tried putting the CDs up on the website, but it was too large for the current code to handle. I'm working on where/how to put them up instead.
