Dear Industrial Development Advisory Board,

Please could you provide the following information:
1)How many employees are working for your organisation, including full-time, part-time, and contracted staff?
2)What is your annual intranet budget?
3)What is your current intranet solution? (e.g. Invotra, Sharepoint, Kahootz, Umbraco)
4)How long have you been using this solution, and when does your contract expire?
5)Do you work with an external partner to supply your intranet? If not, do you develop your intranet internally?
6)Which team/individual is responsible for managing your intranet internally?
7)Which other organisations have access to your intranet?
8)Do you share IT services with other organisations?
9) Are you using the Office 365 suite? If so, which applications from the suite are in use?
10)Who is responsible for your intranet’s procurement within the organisation?

If possible, please could you present the information via a Microsoft Word or Excel document, sent to me via email. I understand that under the act, I should be entitled to a response within 20 days and therefore I would appreciate if you could confirm receipt of my request.
