I am sending this email in response to your Freedom of Information Act (2000) request reference IR 5617. Please use this reference in any subsequent contact relating to this request.
Please see a response below each of your questions:
1. Who is responsible for sourcing the ITHC testing?
This is carried out by Digital Services within Chelmsford City Council. The individual that was previously responsible for this no longer works for the Council and their role has yet to be replaced. It is still undecided who currently owns this - this may become clearer in the next few months.
2. When is the ITHC testing usually carried out? (Month/Year) When is the council's PSN submission due? (Month/Year) How much did last year's ITHC testing cost?
ITHC testing is usually carried out annually in the third quarter (October-December).
PSN due in July 2018.
Cost was approximately £8-£10k.
