Freedomofinformation, Rhondda Cynon Taff Council

Dear Mr Le Brocq

We refer to your Freedom of Information Request in respect of software
systems used for Education Management and Adult & Children Social Care.

The Authority's response is set out below:

1. The name of the supplier of your Education Management Information
Software System (Local authority use for admissions, LAC, SEND, Early
Years etc, not the schools system please)

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide the information for this part of
your request as we consider the information to be exempt under Section
31(1)(a) of the Freedom of Information Act which deals with information
prejudicial to law enforcement (prevention and detection of crime).

This is a qualified exemption and we have therefore applied the public
interest test. In making this decision we have weighed such factors as the
Council's desire to be open and transparent in all its dealings against
the need to protect the safety/security of the Council’s IT systems
against cyber crime.

Accordingly, insofar as this element of your request is concerned and in
accordance with Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act ("the Act")
this email acts as a Refusal Notice.

2. The annual support and maintenance cost for this system i.e. the sum
paid to the supplier annually

The total charge for 2018/19 is £176,691.88. Because of the integrated and
modular nature of the system, it is not possible to disaggregate the cost
for specific services.

3. When is the contract due for renewal and notice period?

The contract is due for renewal in 2022. The notice period is six months.

4. Who is your current adult & child social care case management software
provider?

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide the information for this part of
your request as we consider the information to be exempt under Section
31(1)(a) of the Freedom of Information Act which deals with information
prejudicial to law enforcement (prevention and detection of crime).

This is a qualified exemption and we have therefore applied the public
interest test. In making this decision we have weighed such factors as the
Council's desire to be open and transparent in all its dealings against
the need to protect the safety/security of the Council’s IT systems
against cyber crime.

Accordingly, insofar as this element of your request is concerned and in
accordance with Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act ("the Act")
this email acts as a Refusal Notice.

If you are unhappy with the way your request for information has been
handled, you can request a review of the Council’s response. If you wish
to exercise this right, you must do so within 40 working days of the date
of this response. Please set out in writing your grounds and send your
appeal to Mrs Julie Llewellyn. She may be reached at
[1][email address] or at RCT CBC, The Pavilions, Clydach
Vale, Tonypandy, CF40 2XX.

Additionally you may, if you wish, find out more about the Freedom of
Information Act & Environmental Information Regulations from the
Information Commissioner at [2]http://www.ico.org.uk/
