Dear Meteorological Office,

My name is Edward McMenamin, I am a Partnerships Manager for ESS Defence & Government Services. We are a specialised division of the Compass Group.

I would like to submit a Freedom of Information Request comprising of the questions below so that we can proficiently anticipate your needs at such time when your catering/FM contract comes to tender.

ESS Government services have already successfully provided catering/FM contracts for numerous departments and would welcome the opportunity to take on further government contracts in the future.

Is a catering restaurant or café provided on the premises?
What are the addresses of the buildings in which the restaurants or cafés are located?
Who is the current catering incumbent of the catering contract?
What is the catering value? (Or is it nil subsidy?)
Are the catering facilities shared with other departments?
When is the catering service contract due for re-tender?
How will it be re-tendered?
Is the contract part of a PFI?
Is it part of an FM contract? (and if so, what services are also included in the contract?)
Who provides the other soft FM services?
Who will be the main person leading on the tender during the formal tender process?
When will the tender notice be issued?
Where will the tender notice be issued?
When is the tender due for release?
Is it on the CCS framework?
Who in the department is responsible for the management of the contract?
How many people are there on-site per day?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kindest regards,
Edward.
