Dear Keith,

I am writing in response to your e-mail of 20 April 2010 requesting
information about the procurement of construction consultancy and
construction contractors. Your request has been considered under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000.

The Department has minimal construction spend. Any expenditure would be
aligned with the Office of Government Commerce's collaborative procurement
strategy and would go through frameworks let by the OGC's Executive Agency
Buying Solutions. Details of their various frameworks can be found on
their website at [1]http://www.buyingsolutions.gov.uk/

Communities and Local Government as an organisation aims to be as helpful
as possible in the way it deals with requests for information under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Environmental Information
Regulations 2004. If, however, you are not satisfied with the way in which
your request has been handled or the outcome, you may request an internal
review within two calendar months of the date of this letter. Information
about the Department's review procedures and how to apply for an internal
review of your case is contained on the Department's website at
[2]http://www.communities.gov.uk/documents/.... This
also explains your right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner
for a decision in the event that you remain dissatisfied following the
Department's review.

Generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted this
Department's Internal Review procedure. The Information Commissioner`s
address and contact details are set out in the above leaflet.

If you have any queries about this letter, please contact me. Please
remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.

Yours sincerely
