Dear Mary Redman,

 

We write further to your request and unfortunately this relates to a
tender which is currently underway and so information is commercially
sensitive until process has concluded.

We are just working through evaluation at the moment – and then if we are
going to progress to award we will need to get approval from procurement
board first.
 
I would anticipate a paper on this will go back to PB in March and we
would be in a position to provide an update at that point.
I will close this FoI so if you wish for an update in March please send
through an updated request.

If you are unhappy with the way your request has been handled or the
outcome of your request, you may ask for an internal review. You should
contact The FoI Reviewing Officer, Legal & Democratic Services, Council
Offices, Market Street, Newbury RG14 5LD, email [email address],
within 40 working days, if you wish to request a review.

 

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: - Information
Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9
5AF​

Dear West Berkshire Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of West Berkshire Council's handling of my FOI request 'Education Management System Tender'.

I believe the council should be able to advise how many replies to tender have been issued against this invite to tender. All responses should have now been collected by the council and I am keen to understand if their market activity was open or was in fact too specific to encourage only a single supplier to reply and therefore in breach of public procurement guidelines.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/e...

Yours faithfully,

Mary Redman

Hi Jake

Karen asked me to come back to you on the above.

 

This relates to a tender which is currently underway and so information is
commercially sensitive until process has concluded.

We are just working through evaluation at the moment – and then if we are
going to progress to award we will need to get approval from procurement
board first.

 

I would anticipate a paper on this will go back to PB in March and we
would be in a position to provide an update at that point.

 

Does that help?  Do let me know if you need anything else at this point.

Thanks

Vicki
