Dear Ms Redfellow
CYPS FOI Request N8323
Thank you for your FOI request of 21 May 2014.
Please find attached the tender documents submitted by Esland in relation
to the procurement exercise for the provision of educational and
residential services to children and young people with BESD. This
includes the tender and the appendices which have been referenced.
Some of the information within the tender and the appendices has been
redacted. The County Council is relying on the exemption contained in
s43(2) of the Freedom of Information Act - to disclose the information
would prejudice the commercial interests of any person.
The biddersâ€™ commercial interests would be likely to be prejudiced by
the disclosure of some elements of their bid as it would compromise their
commercial offering in relation to tenders for other projects which are
being conducted throughout the country.
The County Councilâ€™s commercial interests would also be likely to be
prejudiced by the disclosure of the information. The County Council
endeavours to obtain the best possible contractual outcome with its
providers and potential providers need to be able to submit competitive
prices without fear of them being disclosed.
Whilst the need for transparency in respect of public procurement is
acknowledged, in considering the public interest the County Council feels
that the need to preserve the commercial interests of the bidder and the
County Council outweighs the benefit of disclosing the information.
The Councilâ€™s FOI appeals process is attached for your information.
Plan ahead for the Tour de France in North Yorkshire on July 5th and 6th.
