Open Standards when specifying ICT requirements

Glyn Moody made this Freedom of Information request to Cabinet Office

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Cabinet Office,

I am writing in connection with two Cabinet Office Procurement Policy Notes:

PPN 3/11, “Procurement Policy Note - Use of Open Standards when specifying ICT requirements"

and

PPN 9/11, "Procurement Policy Note - Open Standards when specifying IT requirements"

I would be grateful if you could please supply me with the following information:

What meetings, telephone or email exchanges were held with representatives of Microsoft or the Business Software Alliance at any time during 2011?

I would like to obtain copies of any documents arising out of these meetings or discussions – letters, emails, briefs, memoranda, background documents etc to or from either side etc.

Thank you for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Glyn Moody

Cabinet Office

The Cabinet Office's original response to this request on March 30th was redacted using black boxes on top of the original PDFs, making the redacted information easy to extract.

When we were informed of this we temporarily hid the request and the Cabinet Office provided replacement copies on March 31st.

In cases of accidentally released information we make our own judgement on what to do with it, but this can take some time so we have republished the request in the meantime, with the original response hidden.
