Dear Mr Smith

 

We write in response to your recent request for information under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 in which you asked for:

successful & not successful at the PQQ & ITT stages • Actual contract
values of each framework/contract (& any sub lots) • Start date & duration
of framework • Is there an extension clause in the

• Has a decision been made yet on whether the framework(s)/contract(s) are

• Who is the senior officer (outside of procurement) responsible for this
contract?

 

In response we can advise as follows:

 

• Suppliers who applied for inclusion on each framework/contract and were
successful & not successful at the PQQ & ITT stages - All the information
regarding the successful suppliers for the Occupational Health Contract is
in the public domain and can be viewed at
[1]https://procontract.due-north.com/Contra...
The names of the unsuccessful suppliers are considered commercially
sensitive and thereby exempt from disclosure.*

 

• Actual contract values of each framework/contract (& any sub lots) - All
the information regarding the successful suppliers for the Occupational
Health Contract is in the public domain and can be viewed at
[2]https://procontract.due-north.com/Contra...
The contract bids of the unsuccessful suppliers are considered
commercially sensitive and thereby exempt from disclosure*.

 

• Start date & duration of framework – 29/04/2019 – 01/04/2021

 

• Is there an extension clause in the framework(s)/contract(s) and, if so,
the duration of the extension?-  Yes, +2 years

*Please note that we have declined to provide information under Section 43
of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. It is the Council’s belief that
the information you have requested is commercially sensitive and having
given consideration to the fact that the information requested could be
used/passed on to gain an unfair advantage for future tender exercises,
this part of your request is refused under the exemption contained in
section 43 (2) of The Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

The Council considers that the disclosure of the information would be
likely to prejudice the commercial interests both of the public authority
and its suppliers; its disclose may also affect the Council’s ability to
do business in future. The Council considers the public interest in
maintaining the exemption under s43 in this case outweigh the public
interest in disclosure.

 

You have the right under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000
to ask for an internal review of the refusal of the information requested.
Please direct any request for an internal review to
[3][Wirral Borough Council request email] and your request will be allocated to
an independent officer for review. You also have the right to complain to
the information Commissioner, if you are dissatisfied with the outcome of
any internal review, at [4]www.ico.gov.uk

 

Yours sincerely
