Dear Mr Anderson,

 

Request for Information under the Freedom of Information Act (2000)

 

We refer to your request for information, made under the provisions of the
above Act.

 

After conducting our initial investigation it has become clear that we
require clarification from you. Section 1(3) of the Freedom of Information
Act states that a public authority is not obliged to comply with a request
for information in situations where it requires further details in order
to do so. 

 

As such, to enable us to process you request, please see below the
clarification required:

Request:

corporate property/assets including facilities management (CAFM).

 

• Who are the current supplier(s)?

 

• What was the actual contract value(s) of each contract?

 

• Start date & duration of the contract.

 

• Is there an extension clause in the contract(s) and, if so, the duration
of the extension?

 

• Has a decision been made yet on whether the contract(s) are being either

Clarification Required:

 

Please can you specify if the Property Management Solution is related to
the property and asset management system that we use (IT software only) or
is this with regards to the physical provision of property management

plumbing, electrical repairs etc.

 

Your request will now be placed on hold until we hear back from you.
