Dear Jane Kennedy (acting head of Corporate Governance and monitoring Office)

Could I ask for an internal review of Copy of the score sheet from Mrs Lisa Cywinski as pertaining to the lease of Offa's Tourist information Centre. Taking in to consideration of the following points.

THE RULING STATES:-
1 August 2005 DFID will, in accordance with the European Court of Justice ruling on the Alcatel Case, be providing the following information when issuing notification of an award decision:

• The award criteria;
• Where appropriate, the score the tenderer obtained against those award criteria;
• The name of the winning tenderer.

And goes on to justify it's ruling of non disclosure of score sheets:-

89.The Commissioner is conscious of DFID’s decision following the European Court of Justice ruling on the Alcatel Case to disclose the following when issuing notification of an award decision: the score awarded to the tenderer against those criteria; and the name of the winning tenderer, when issuing notification of an award decision. However, as DFID only started publishing this type of
information in August 2005 which was a number of months following completion of the tendering process for this contract it is clear that Mr Preston’s expectations could not have been shaped by DFID’s decision to follow the Alcatel Case.

90.There is therefore an element of speculation in the Commissioner’s determination as to what Mr Preston’s expectations would have been with regard to disclosure of the various the score cards which follows:

91.The Commissioner notes that under previous tendering processes i.e. those which pre-dated the process under which Mr Preston won this contract, DFID did not disclose the score cards of winning tenderer's. Consequently, in the Commissioner’s opinion it would have been reasonable for Mr Preston to assume that the score card used to assess his tender would also not be disclosed.

As it is clear that Mrs Cywinski score sheet was from 2009, well after the European Court of Justice ruling 2005. It could be fairly assumed any public body would, if requested publish such score sheet/s.

I would politely ask that the 1st August 2005 European Court of Justice ruling be followed.

To avoid expense and for speed of reply. Email attachment and/or PDF documentation would be acceptable and preferred. Thank you.

Please let me know if my question needs clarifying to avoid further questions that might arise due to ambiguous answers. I'll be happy to resupply in a format that will let you either supply photocopy/PDF information (dependent on quantity) or supply information without the need to edit any answers you feel I have not asked. Or brief answers that could arise to second and third questions.

Once again thank you for your help.
