Contracts issued for small arms, small arms ammunition and small arms attachments

Iain Overton made this Freedom of Information request to Ministry of Defence

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 refused by Ministry of Defence.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

Please can you supply me, on an XL spreadsheet, the following information:

1. Details of all contracts issued since 9/11/01 for small arms purchases by the MOD. Can this be broken down year by year (e.g. 2001, 2002, 2003 - not financial years) and include how much each contract was awarded for and how much money was paid in the end.
2. Details of all contracts issued since 9/11/01 for small arms munition purchases by the MOD. Can this be broken down year by year (e.g. 2001, 2002, 2003 - not financial years) and include how much each contract was awarded for and how much money was paid in the end.
3. Details of all contracts issued since 9/11/01 for small arms attachment purchases by the MOD. Can this be broken down year by year (e.g. 2001, 2002, 2003 - not financial years) and include how much each contract was awarded for and how much money was paid in the end.
4. For all the above please can you include the name and country origin of all winning tender corporations.

Under the FOI rules, if you do not feel that this information request is sufficient to reply in full, please do help me formulate my question so that we can get the best answer together.

If there is a cost issue in terms of pulling this together, please do start with request 1 and continue from there.

As the DOD in the United States publishes all of its contracts online, I feel it is in the public interest for the MOD to do the same. If you do do this anyway, please can you direct me to the relevant websites.

Finally, you are legally duty bound to ensure that such information is already collated in a way that is easy for the public to access. As contract awarding is a key public concern, the information I require should be easily accessed. I am sure it is.

Yours faithfully,

Iain Overton
