Dear Network Rail,

On NR South East Route, what was the spend in 2016/17 and 2017/18 (to date) on consultants from Amey PLC (Strategic Consulting and Technology team), on projects relating to Performance and Analytics?

Also, can you provide evidence/assurance that, in this case, the procurement of Amey PLC was compliant with EU procurement governance and procedures?

I believe FOI2016/00546 is an appropriate precedent in enabling you to answer this query promptly.

Regards,

Dear Network Rail Limited,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Network Rail Limited's handling of my FOI request 'NR South East Route spend on Amey PLC on Performance & Analytics'.

Surely one cannot back solve Amey's day rate given the fluidly of staff. Consultant numbers go up and down according to the workload at the time. On this basis I am appealing the decision.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/n...

Yours faithfully,
