Dear Sir/Madam

Freedom of Information Act 2000 - Information request 149370

Your request for information has now been considered and the information
requested is below.

Information disclosed:

Request:

1. Please can you direct me to the authority's current ICT strategy?

2. Does the authority use or is planning to use Azure or any other cloud
hosted services?

3. If you are currently using, or planning to use Azure, AWS or Google;
what are your main drivers and goals?

Response:

1. Old Strategy attached. No up to date Strategy in place at present.

2. We are currently in the process of procuring our new Microsoft licences
which will be M365 licences. We are not using Azure or other cloud hosted
services yet.

3. We are being forced by Microsoft to their cloud solution presently due
to the price of cloud licences against on premise. This will then give us
the ability to look at different potential ways of working over the next
three years.

If you are dissatisfied with this response, and believe Richmondshire
District Council has not complied with legislation, please ask for an
internal review. Please quote reference number 149370.

You may apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision at
