Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
The PIP contracts between the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions and Atos IT Services UK Ltd (2 lots) (“Atos”), and Capita Business Services Ltd (“Capita”) specify that the both parties must supply the Department with regular management information (“MI”). The periodicity for the “MI” varies, e.g. in some cases it is monthly while in others it appear to be once per year.
The requirement for the MI is prescribed in the Service Specification FINAL v2.0 and associated annexes (11 in total). For the avoidance of doubt the term MI in this request refers to all management information described in the document Service Specification FINAL v2.0 and its associated annexes. This is to include information regardless of periodicity (i.e. it is not limited to that provided monthly). It is also to include any additions that logically fall within management information agreed between the Department and Capita and Atos.
RFI1 - Please disclose the MI provided to the Department by Capita (Lot 2) and Atos (Lots 1 and 3) that covers the period January 2017 to December 2017. Please note that if any disclosure does not mirror the contractual requirements in Service Specification FINAL v2.0 and its 11 annexes I expect the Department to cite the relevant exemption or explain why this information is not held (e.g. changes to contract have been agreed).
This request is made on the assumption that the Department will carry out relevant redaction of personal information exempt under the FOIA (Section 40 (2)).
