Kent County Council IT Services

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Kent County Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Kent County Council,

How much have Kent County Council paid for their IT services per year over the last 5 years? This includes hardware/software licensing, on-premise costs, cloud hosting and support costs.

Over this time period, can you also provide the numbers of KCC employee's utilising these services?

Yours faithfully,

Tommy D

Dear Kent County Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Kent County Council's handling of my FOI request 'Kent County Council IT Services'.

Thank you initially for the costs provided, good to see your getting good value for money for your IT Services....maybe you need a new IT provider who would reduce IT costs, rather than increasing them year on year! while also claiming to have stood up a remote working solution in the face of COVID, when in reality the solution was already in place.

I am disappointed KCC are unable to provide me with the figures for the users using their infrastructure. This is an attainable figure, as they would have had accounts created and assigned to a specific business unit and the numbers easily attainable.

I can only conclude this figure is being hidden, to prevent a direct comparison year on year for services provided specifically to KCC staff. It would become quite evident, how much your LATCO's have been subsidised year on year to utilise KCC IT Services and as per a previous request.... you haven't even charged Cantium for use of your IT services!

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/k...

Yours faithfully,

Tommy D
