FIO Request

Paul made this Freedom of Information request to Glasgow Caledonian University

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was refused by Glasgow Caledonian University.

Dear Glasgow Caledonian University,

I would like a list of the top 20 -30 subcontractors, suppliers or service provider company names you that provide any forms of facilities & estates management services such as contract cleaning , maintenance , plumbing, electrical, roofing, work , gardening, landscaping, pest control, furniture, technology.
These will be companies you may have framework agreements with.
If a list isn’t readily available from your purchasing, facilities or estates management dept. please simply write down the company names. Should only take ten mins of your time to put together..
Also if possible please detail the main 5 contractors used for any major regeneration or building works the university had or have currently underway.

Yours faithfully,

Paul

Dear Paul

 

Glasgow Caledonian University received your request for information. As
you did not provide your full name in the body of your emailed request,
your application is not valid and therefore cannot be processed. For a
request to be valid a requester must provide their full name in the
request and, particularly for emailed requests, within the body of the
email. Please see the guidance below from the Scottish Information
Commissioner.

‘FOISA/EIRs Guidance Information requests: the name of the requester or
applicant’ dated 9 December 2016 states:

Names in emails

9. Where requests are sent by email, the name of the requester should
appear in the text of the email, not just in the email address. If the
name is not in the body of the email, the request is invalid. This is
because more than one person may use an email address. For example, it
will not be clear who has sent an email from an address such as
[2][email address]

Is a first name enough?

10. No. Requesters must provide their full name (usually a first and
surname/family name) before a request will be valid. Even where the
requester is known to the authority, a request which only includes a first
name will not be valid.

Requests will normally be valid if they include a surname/ family name and
an initial.

As you have not provided your full name your request is an invalid request
under the terms of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA)
Section 8(b). Once you have provided your full name the University will be
happy to process your request for information. Please therefore re-send
your request with your full name in the body of the e-mail and we can then
process it. In the meantime, your request is on hold.

Yours sincerely

Linda Reid

Dear Paul

 

In response to your request for information relating to Suppliers and
Contractors, we wrote to you on12 December 2017 indicating that your
request was invalid under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002
as it did not contain your full name in the body of the text.

 

The University received the request on 12 December 2017 and 20 working
days for us to respond have now passed.  We have not had a response from
you providing your full name and therefore we have not been able to
proceed with your information request.

 

Please find attached a review notice setting out the steps you may take if
you are not satisfied with the response provided to your request.

 

Yours sincerely
