Dear Ms Johnson

 

Thank you for your request for information made under the Freedom of
Information Act (FOIA) 2000, relating to KCC’s Kent Test provider.

 

Will GL Assessment still be responsible for administering the Kent Test in
September 2018? When is their current contract with KCC due to expire? I
can confirm that GL Assessment’s contract with KCC to provide the tests
taken in 2017 has recently expired, and we are currently in discussion
about the extension of the contract for 2018.

 

If you are unhappy with this response, and believe KCC has not complied
with legislation, please ask for a review by following our complaints
process; details can be found at this link

on our website. Please quote reference FOI/17/1682.

 

If you still remain dissatisfied following an internal review, you can
appeal to the Information Commissioner, who oversees compliance with the
Freedom of Information Act 2000. Details of what you need to do, should
you wish to pursue this course of action, are available from the
Information Commissioner’s website [2]http://www.ico.org.uk/concerns.

 

Yours sincerely
