Dear Mr Griffiths,

Your request for information on Procurement of Contractors and
Construction Consultancy Services

Thank you for your email dated 23rd June 2010 requesting an Internal
Review regarding your request for information about Procurement of
Contractors and Construction Consultancy Services.

I am aware that you have not received a response to your freedom of
information request, received on 20th April 2010 which was due on 19th May
2010.

Unfortunately it has proved more complex and time consuming than
anticipated to locate and retrieve the information that you have asked
for. I will contact the department today for an update on the progress of
your request.

I will remind the department that we have now exceeded the statutory
deadline and that this now needs to be dealt with as a matter of urgency.

Unfortunately we cannot conduct an Internal Review at this stage, as a
response to your freedom of information request has not been provided.

I can confirm that this request is still being processed, and you will
receive a response as soon as is possible.

Following this response, if you are still unhappy with the service you
have received in relation to your request and wish to make a complaint or
request a review of our decision, you should write to: Louise Kelly,
Information Manager, Chief Executive's Directorate, Civic Centre Floor 4,
Glebe Street, ST4 1HH or email [1][Stoke on Trent City Council request email].

If, after contacting us, you are not content with the outcome, you may ask
the Information Commissioner for a decision. Generally, the Information
Commissioner cannot make a decision unless you have already used our
appeal procedure. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: The
Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow,
Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

If you have any queries or concerns about this letter/email, please do not
hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely
