Dear Local Authority Purchasing Partnership,

We are researching ethical procurement strategies, with regards to electronics and ICT in the UK, in order to work towards a campaign aiming for the transformation of practices within the electronics industry.

Please answer the questions listed below in as much detail as possible.

1. Which organisations do you procure ICT products for amongst your members?

2. Please specify the total amount your collaborative procurement contracts for ICT products were worth in 2010, 2011, and 2012. By ICT products we mean for example: computers, screens, keyboards, laptops, printers, mobile phones, ipads or other tablets. Ideally, please split this response by product, or if that takes too long, please lump it into one sum per year.

3. Can you provide us with a tender document which shows your ethical policy relating to labour rights issues? Please provide a URL link or attachment with the policy.

4. Who are your 5 biggest ICT suppliers in the last 3 years and what proportion of your spend went to each supplier?

5. Do you have staff with ethical or sustainable procurement expertise employed internally – we'd particularly like to know about whether you have a Procurement Manager with this remit, or a Sustainability Manager. What is/are their name/s and email address(es)?

6. Does your organisation procure its own ICT products? If so what proportion of your spend in the last 3 years was done through setting up your own ICT contracts with suppliers?

7. Or do you procure ICT products by using framework contracts you share with others. If so what proportion of your spend in the last 3 years was done through framework contracts? Which contract did you use?

8. If your process of ordering ICT products is through central government purchases, what proportion of your spend in the last 3 years was done through central government procurement? Which contract did you use?

Yours faithfully,

Emma van Dam

Hi Emma

Could you please clarify question 1? Who do you mean by 'organisations' and 'your members'?

We can then proceed with your request.

Thanks

Dear Haslam, Carolyn,

By 'organisations' or 'members' we mean any organisations who procure ICT through LAPP, so either member organisations, who do so regularly, or others, who have done so one-off. Does this make sense?

Yours sincerely,

Emma van Dam
