Dear Mr Masterson

Request for Information (Reference 10/FOI/2575)

I am writing in response to your request for information received on 8
September 2010.

Your request has been carefully considered and I am pleased to confirm
that Gloucestershire County Council does hold some of the information you
have requested:

1. The director responsible for implementing the Putting People First
Transforming Adult Social Care Department and Health programme also known
as Putting People First and/or Choice and Control is Dave Martin, Interim
Group Director Community & Adult Care, 01452 425102,
[1][email address].

The assistant director responsible for implementing the Putting People
First Transforming Adult Social Care Department and Health programme also
known as Putting People First and/or Choice and Control is Margaret
Willcox, Joint Director of Operations & Development, 08456 598187,
[2][email address].

The Head of Service responsible for implementing the Putting People First
Transforming Adult Social Care Department and Health programme also known
as Putting People First and/or Choice and Control - N/A.

The programme manager responsible for implementing the Putting People
First Transforming Adult Social Care Department and Health programme also
known as Putting People First and/or Choice and Control is Carey Wallin,
Putting People First Programme Manager, 01452 425198,
[3][email address].

The project manager responsible for implementing the Putting People First
Transforming Adult Social Care Department and Health programme also known
as Putting People First and/or Choice and Control is Mandy Guest, Work
Stream Manager, 01452 425129, [4][email address].

The project manager responsible for procuring any information system for
enabling Personal budget holders and/or Personal Budget Broker and/or
Personal Budget Advocates to buy services online and/or find out
information online and/or manage their personal budget online is Richard
Morris, Senior Business Analyst, 01452 426454,
[5][email address].

2. Please find attached a copy of the Putting People First Programme
Charter.

3. We do not have a business requirements document, but please find
attached our Integrated Adult Social Care System/ERIC Replacement Project
business case.

4. We do not have a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire document or plans
to produce one as we are going down the `Buying Solutions' route.

5. We do not yet have an Invitation to Quote document - this should be
completed by 29 October 2010. However, as Gloucestershire County Council
has developed significant Putting People First functionality for its
in-house developed Social Care System (ERIC) the final decision to replace
it has not been made.

6. We have procured an information system to find information online
called `Open Objects Adult Social Care Hub'.

7. The Council is still undertaking market research in this area. If
it decides to replace the Adult Social Care system then it will be
delivered as part of that solution. An option remains to extend the Open
Objects Adult Social Care Hub.

8. This is to be determined subject to the decision on the Adult Social
Care Integrated System.

9. Procurement will probably be via "Buying Solutions" and linked to
the Adult Social Care system replacement project.

Gloucestershire County Council has not withheld any information in
relation to this request under the exemptions of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (FoIA).

I hope the information received is what you were expecting. If you feel
that we have failed to comply with the FoIA in relation to this request,
you may make a complaint or request an internal review by writing back
within 40 working days of the date of receipt of this email, and sending

of the Information Compliance Complaints Procedure can be found on our

will be no charge for dealing with your complaint. Please address your
