Dear Kay McLoughlin,

Thank you for your request for information dated 11 May 2013 which was received by us on 13 May 2013.

This request is being handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

I am writing to ask you to clarify your request. This is because "contracts" could be interpreted in a number of ways and we need further details from you in order to ensure that we have understood your request correctly and to identify and locate the correct information. Please could you clarify what you mean by the term "procurement contracts". Do you require information in respect of formal contracts, which are defined by the council as those contracts which are valued at £75,000 and above, or something else?

I look forward to hearing from you.
Yours sincerely,
Rachel Neville

Dear Shepway District Council,

Basically I want to know which non-Shepway businesses have been used by SDC, what they were used for, why they were selected, who they were,where they are located and how much they were paid.

This would apply to contracts/invoices below £75,000

I hope this clarifies it a bit better.

Yours faithfully,

Kay McLoughlin

Folkestone & Hythe District Council

Dear Kay McLoughlin,

I am writing in respect of your Freedom of Information request dated 11 May 2013 which was received by us on 13 May 2013 and your clarification of 17 May 2013. This request has been handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Please find attached information in the form of spreadsheet in response to your request for information relating to procurement contracts given to non-Shepway businesses since May 2012.

The first tab details payments only under £75,000 and the other all payments. The fourth column gives a brief description of what the payment was for but we are unable to break this down further.

The suppliers would have been used based on them being most economically advantageous for the product or service purchased.
