Dear Angela Curtis
 
 
FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 - INFORMATION REQUEST ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
 
Thank you for your request for information received on 27th April 2021.
 
Your request is being considered and, subject to the points made below,
you will receive the information requested as promptly as possible within
the statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.
 
If we need to obtain more information from you in order to understand what
information you require, we will contact you. If this is the case, the 20
days time limit will not commence until your request has been clarified.
 
The Act defines a number of exemptions that may prevent release of certain
information.  The City Council will consider whether any of these
exemptions apply and, where required by the Act, whether it is in the
public interest to release the information.  If we have to make a public
interest test, the 20 day time limit might be extended. We will inform you
if the time scale has to be extended and if any information is withheld
and of your rights of appeal.
 
The City Council would like to make you aware that disclosure of
information obtained through FOIA is a disclosure into the public domain.
 
The City Council’s standard approach is to provide the information in the
form in which we hold it.  If you require alternative formats, e.g. audio,
large print, etc. or a different language, please let me know and we will
provide it if reasonably practicable to do so. If your request is a
question and we do not hold the answer in recorded form we will try and
provide an answer where we are able unless it requires the creation of new
information.
 
There may be a fee payable for this information request and we will send
you a Fees Notice if this is the case. Any fee must be paid before the
request is provided.  The time between the issue of the Fees Notice and
receipt of payment is excluded from the calculation of the 20 working day
time limit.
 
Any personal information you provide in relation to this request will only
be used for the purposes of processing your request for information.
 
If you have any queries or concerns then please contact the Corporate
Information Governance Officer at Portsmouth City Council, Civic Offices,
Guildhall Square, Portsmouth, Hampshire, PO1 2AL, telephone 023 92
834385, e-mail [1][email address].
 
Yours sincerely
 
 
 
                                                                                               
           
Wendy Burton
FOI Officer

Dear Angela Curtis
 
 
FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 - INFORMATION REQUEST RESPONSE
 
Thank you for your request for information received on 27th April 2021.
 
In accordance with the Act, I confirm Portsmouth City Council holds the
information you are seeking. 
 
YOUR REQUEST AND OUR RESPONSE
 
Could you please inform me if you use the Adobe Acrobat PDF editing
software within the council, and if so how many licences do you subscribe
to and what is your annual spend on this software :
 
106 x Acrobat Pro DC
50 x Acrobat Standard DC
 
Due to commercial sensitivity and in accordance with section 43(1) and
43(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the council is unable to
provide details on the annual spend on this software.
 
The public interest test has been conducted.  The Council is mindful of
its duty to be transparent in all its dealings, however, it must also
preserve its ability to achieve best value for money for the taxpayer and
operate most efficiently in commercial negotiations.  Taking into account
all factors of this case, we believe the balance weighs in favour of
maintaining the exemption and withholding the information.
 
 
In accordance with the Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations
2015, this information may not be re-used without permission from
Portsmouth City Council.
 
You have the right request an internal review of this outcome or to
complain about our treatment of your request.  If you wish to do so,
please set out in writing your grounds of complaint and send to the
Corporate Information Governance Officer at Portsmouth City Council, Civic
Offices, Guildhall Square, Portsmouth, Hampshire, PO1 2AL, telephone 023
9283 4385, e-mail  [1][email address].
 
Should you be dissatisfied with the outcome of the complaints decision you
may wish to follow the Portsmouth City Council’s Compliments and
Complaints procedure which can be found on the Portsmouth City Council
website or by contacting the Civic Offices.
 
If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of the internal review or you
have any other concerns, you may wish to contact the Information
Commissioner at:
