Information on Outsourced Security Contracts

The request was partially successful.

Dear The National Army Museum,

I would be most grateful if you would provide me, under the Freedom of Information Act, details in respect to any Security Services you have on contract. This is both for CCTV and manned guarding.

The details we require are:
• Suppliers who applied for inclusion on each contract and were successful & not successful at the PQQ & ITT stages
• Actual spend on this contract from the start of the contract to the current date
• Start date & duration of contract (s)?
• Could you please provide a copy of the service/product specification given to all bidders for when this contract (s) was last advertised?
• 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 extended or renewed?
• Who is the senior officer (outside of procurement) responsible for this contract?

Thank you for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Alan Smith
