Beverley Knight

Dear FOI Team,

I would be most grateful if you would provide me, under the Freedom of Information Act, details in respect to the contract below.

Leadership Development 2018-21:
https://www.contractsfinder.service.gov....

The details we require are:
• Suppliers who applied for inclusion on each framework/contract and were successful & not successful at the PQQ & ITT stages
• Actual spend on this contract/framework (and any sub lots), from the start of the contract to the current date
• Start date & duration of framework
• Is there an extension clause in the framework(s)/contract(s) and, if so, the duration of the extension?
• Has a decision been made yet on whether the framework(s)/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 sincerely,
Bev

FoI, University of Wolverhampton

After receiving no response from you after the legal response time, I sent you another message dated April 7th explaining that the legal response time had passed. On April 9th you replied, only referencing your original message dated March 25th, to which I responded to you asking you to review my message sent on March 25th (as copied above).

I feel I have no other option than to request an internal review on this request.

Your message to [email address] couldn't be delivered.
The group FoI only accepts messages from people in its organization or on
its allowed senders list, and your email address isn't on the list.
request-733456-cd2f5. . . Office 365 FoI
Sender Action Required
Sender not allowed
How to Fix It
It appears you aren't in the same organization as the group (or a
sub-group) you're sending to or your email address isn't on the group's
allowed senders list. Ask the owner of the group to grant you permission
to send to it, and then try again. If the group belongs to a different
organization than yours, contact the organization's customer service
department for assistance. If the group is in your organization and you
don't know who the group owner is, you can find it by doing the following
in either Outlook on the web or Outlook:
* Open your Sent folder and select the original message.
* If you're using Outlook on the web, select the group name located on
the To or CC line. If you're using Outlook, double-click the group
name located on the To or CC line.
* In Outlook on the web, from the pop-up dialog box, choose Owner. In
Outlook, choose Contact. The owner's name is listed under Owner.
The owner of the group may have intentionally chosen to restrict who can
send messages to it, and they may not want to adjust the existing
restriction. In this case, you'll have to contact the group members by
some other means, such as sending an email message to their individual
email addresses or contacting them by phone.
