Dear Advisory Group on Military Medicine,

I am currently researching if any paper documents are currently being archived and would be most grateful if you would provide me, under the Freedom of Information Act, details in respect to the contract below.
The details we require are:
• Do you currently have any paper documents in storage?
• If any paper documents are currently being stored, would you consider having your documents securely scanned by a reputable UK secure scanning company?
• If all of your documents have been securely digitised, do you have any bespoke software to electronically access and manage scanned images?
• Who is the senior officer/s (outside of procurement) responsible for the management of physical records?
Thank you for your help.

Yours faithfully,

elliot smith

SG SecFin-Sec Gp Mailbox (MULTIUSER), Advisory Group on Military Medicine

Dear Mr Smith,
Thank you for your email below

The MOD can confirm that your enquiry is being treated as a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act (2000).

The Advisory Group on Military Medicine (AGOMM) is an independent group of experts who provide specialist advice to the MOD on the medical aspects of defence against chemical, biological and radiological threats. AGOMM is a non-departmental public body sponsored by the MOD and the MOD is responsible for records relating to AGOMM. Consequently, AGOMM is not an organisation with its own record management system, so the requested information is not held.

If you would like to refine your request along these lines or have any queries regarding the content of this email, please contact this office.

If you wish to complain about the handling of your request, or the content of this response, you can request an independent internal review by contacting the Information Rights Compliance team, Ground Floor, MOD Main Building, Whitehall, SW1A 2HB (e-mail [email address]). Please note that any request for an internal review should be made within 40 working days of the date of this response.

If you remain dissatisfied following an internal review, you may raise your complaint directly to the Information Commissioner under the provisions of Section 50 of the FOIA. Please note that the Information Commissioner will not normally investigate your case until the MOD internal review process has been completed. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF. Further details of the role and powers of the Information Commissioner can be found on the Commissioner's website at

Yours sincerely,

HQ Defence Medical Services
