Dear InfoMgr, FinDMT,

Thank you for your response on this but that doesn't answer my question about when the council will be adhering to government procurement guidelines.

Please can you take this to the procurement team (as originally requested) as they will have oversight of how the council will be adhering to these guidelines.

Yours sincerely,

Betty Smith

InfoMgr, FinDMT, Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council

Dear Ms Smith

 

Please can you clarify your requirements? Your original request asked when
the Council would be publishing information relating to its education
management system contract and in response, you were provided with a link
to that published information.

 

If you can clarify exactly what recorded information you wish to obtain
that has not been provided, we will revisit your request.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear InfoMgr, FinDMT,

The link you have provided does provide an answer to when the council will publish procurement activity. This is a generic link to that gives information on current tenders.

Please can you provide a specific date as originally requested, failing this I will be requesting an infernal view.

Yours sincerely,

Betty Smith

Dear Mrs Smith

 

Wirral Council are currently implementing a new Enterprise Resource
Planning System, which may have an impact on how the Authority delivers
and manages its services. 

 

Our contracts register has up to date details of all our contracts,
including its Education Management System contract delivered by Capita.
Should any contracts for this Service or relating services need to be
re-tendered then all tender opportunities will be duly advertised and
actioned via the Council's Tender Portal, The Chest,
 [1]www.the-chest.org.uk for all registered suppliers to view and respond
as appropriate.

 

There is no further information that the Authority's Procurement team can
add at this point.

 

If you remain dissatisfied with the Council's handling of your enquiry,
you may raise a complaint with the Information Commissioner's Office at
[2]www.ico.org.uk

 

Yours sincerely
