Niall Campbell,

Dear Ms McDermott,

 

We're currently collating the information you requested under FOI about
Digital Strategy.  My colleagues have asked one or two questions on some
of the information so I wonder if you could clarify what precisely you are
looking for:

 

7. What compute vendor(s) and model do you currently use?

7c. When is your planned (or estimated) compute refresh date? (Month/year)

7d. When does your compute support contract end? (Month/year)

 

Does this refer to our servers, our desktops, or both?

 

If you could clarify this that would be appreciated.

 

Many thanks

 

Niall
