Dear Beverley,

 

Ref: FOI 01663

 

Thank you for your information request received on 3 March for information
related to RWM’s Culture Support contract (our ref RWM388). I have treated
your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (‘the FOI Act’) and
confirm that we hold the information you have requested. Our responses are
provided below:

 

·       Suppliers who applied for inclusion on each framework/contract and
were successful & not successful at the PQQ & ITT stages

 

This was a single stage procurement using a Dynamic Purchasing System
(DPS). The DPS Suppliers who responded to the ITT were:

o Issoria (unsuccessful)
o PA Consulting (unsuccessful)
o Q5 (successful)

 

·       Actual spend on this contract/framework (and any sub lots), from
the start of the contract to the current date

 

The spend to 31 March 2021 will be £426,200.

 

·       Start date & duration of framework

 

The start date of the contract: 25 August 2020

The completion date of the contract: 31 March 2021

 

·       Is there an extension clause in the framework(s)/contract(s) and,
if so, the duration of the extension?

 

The call-off terms provided for one optional extension period – 6 months
maximum.

 

·       Has a decision been made yet on whether the
framework(s)/contract(s) are being either extended or renewed?

 

RWM will not be exercising its right to extend this contract beyond the
initial term. We are in the process of re-tendering the contract using the
CCS Management Consultancy Framework.

 

·       Who is the senior officer (outside of procurement) responsible for
this contract?

 

We are not providing the details of the staff member responsible for this
contract as we consider this to be personal information that falls to be
exempt under Section 40(2) of the FOI Act for personal data. Information
about our procurement process is available on our website:
[1]https://www.gov.uk/government/organisati....

 

Section 40(2) of the FOI Act exempts information from disclosure where it
is personal data of someone other than you and disclosure would put us in
breach of the principles of the Data Protection Act 2018 and the General
Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which require that personal data be
processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the
individual concerned.

 

Guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office states that personal
information can be released where it is deemed the staff member in
question is either public facing or senior/decision making. It also states
that this should only be done where “the legitimate interest can only be
met, or fully met, by the disclosure of information which identifies
individuals.” We consider that the legitimate interests of your request
can also be fulfilled by providing RWM’s procurement information which is
included above.

 

If you are unhappy with the way in which RWM has dealt with your request,
you have the right to require us to review our actions and decisions. If
you wish to request a review, please write to me at
[2][RWM request email] within 40 working days of receipt of this
response. You will receive a full response to your request for review
within 20 working days of its receipt.

 

Please remember to quote ref FOI 01663 in any correspondence about this
request.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
