Dear Mr Irvin,

Thank you for your information request of 22 June 2017.  Aberdeen City
Council (ACC) has completed the necessary search for the information
requested.

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 I was hoping you could furnish
me with the following information for ACC’s fleet services:

 

a)     Vehicle Make/Model

b)     Leased/Hired/Owned

c)     Leasing/Hire Agent

d)     Lease Start Date

e)     Lease End Date

f)      Cost of Lease

 

Please see the attached spreadsheet. The cost of lease has been removed as
this is commercially sensitive information.

 

Aberdeen City Council (ACC) is unable to provide you with information
concerning the cost of lease as we consider this information exempt from
disclosure. In order to comply with its obligations under the terms of
Section 16 of the FOISA, ACC hereby gives notice that we are refusing your
request under the terms of Section 33(1)(b) – of the FOISA.

 

The lease cost per vehicle is deemed to be sensitive in terms of the
current contracted supplier’s commercial interests and, if disclosed,
would potentially increase their competitors opportunities to the
detriment of the current supplier. Furthermore, the release of individual
aspects of any contract might result in potential suppliers not bidding
for future contracts and thereby not ensuring that ACC achieve best value.

 

Therefore, it is considered by ACC that the lease cost will only be of
interest to competitors and releasing this information will provide them
with an commercial advantage to the detriment of the current supplier and
potentially to ACC’s ability to achieve best value in future tendering
processes. ACC must maintain good working relationships with reputable
companies to enable it to obtain value for money and so releasing
commercially sensitive information could potentially damage ACC’s
reputation with such third parties, dissuading the third parties from
engaging with ACC.

 

ACC recognises that there is a public interest in being open and
transparent about its negotiations with third parties. However, ACC is of
the view that in this case, the public interest lies in withholding the
information as disclosure would prejudice ACC’s commercial relationships
and future contractual negotiations with third parties and after
considering all the circumstances of the case, the public interest is best
met by applying Section 33(1)(b) at this time.

 

We are unable to provide the lease start and end date for one of the
vehicles listed on the spreadsheet as this information is currently
unknown.

 

g)     Name of Fleet Contact: William Whyte

h)     Fleet Contact Postal Address: 38 Powis Terrace, Aberdeen. AB25 3RF

i)       Fleet Contact Telephone Number: 03000 200 292

j)       Fleet Contact Email Address: [1][email address]

 

 

We hope this helps with your request.

 

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Information Compliance Team
