Dear Birmingham City Council,

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information from Birmingham City Council:

1) Between 2010 and 2014, I would ask for a breakdown of the following information: How many handsets did the council purchase for its staff in that year? How much money was spent, in each of the years to purchase handsets.

2) For 2015, I would ask for a breakdown of the following information: How many mobile phones were purchased by the council for their staff? What was the mobile phones model (IE: iPhone 6, e.t.c) and the cost of purchasing when bought? I would also ask for the sim-plan that these phones are on. If they are not pay as you go and on a pay monthly tariff, I would ask what the monthly cost of the tariff is and overall how much this equates to for the council by the end of the year. (For example, tariff is £29 a month, 10 phones are on the contract, the council will have paid £290 by the end of the year)

Please provide the information in the form of an Excel document.

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under your Section 16 obligations, as to how I can refine my request to be included in the scope of the Act.

In any case, if you can identify ways that my request could be refined please provide further advice and assistance to indicate this.

I look forward to your response within 20 working days, as stipulated by the Act.

If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact me via email or phone and I will be happy to clarify what I am asking for, my details are outlined below.

Yours faithfully,
Alessandro Sorrentino
