FOI Unit, Vale of Glamorgan Council

Dear Madam,

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request received on 2^nd March.

 

You requested the following information:

I would like to request further information about the Council's Housing
Related Support services.

Could the Council provide details of individual contracted services they
have for Housing Related Support (including accommodation based, floating
support, rough sleeper and Housing First services)

For each individual contract over £100,000 per annum, could the Council
please provide the following information:

•       Contract name
•       Contract start and end date
•       Contract value (please indicate total or annual)
•       The current contract provider
•       Owner of the building the contract is delivered from
•       The client group (please include contracts for single homeless,
families, young people and rough sleepers)
•       Number of clients supported under the contract
•       Whether there is an intention to extend or reprocure the contract
•       Lead commissioner name and contact details

 

Your request has been forwarded to the relevant Officer and I can provide
the following link to the Local Commissioning Plan which contains the
recorded information held in relation to your request.

[1]http://www.valeofglamorgan.gov.uk/Docume...

 

Any financial values not already provided in the above report are exempt
from disclosure in accordance with section 41 and 43 of the Freedom of
Information Act.

 

Part of the information you requested is for the financial value of
contracts with third party companies.

Disclosing the information regarding the annual cost of contracts would
give a competitor an unfair advantage and would, or would be likely to,
prejudice their commercial interests.

It may also result in the Council paying more than they might otherwise
have done in a “blind” tender situation. A competitor might inflate their
prices to be just under their perception of the current price, rather than
a true reflection of their own costs, leading to a disproportionately high
level of profit at the taxpayers’ expense.

 

It is not in the public interest to disclose the costs because the prices
have been individually tailored for the council and supplied in commercial
confidence.

 

 

I hope that this information is of assistance but if you are dissatisfied
with this response and would like to have this reviewed, please contact
the council’s Monitoring Officer (Legal Services) at the Civic Offices ,
Holton Road Barry CF63 4RU.
