Dear Mr Clarke,

Thanks for the email in ref. to Residential Management Group. Surprising to read that you are going to apply a Public Interest test for this FOI because it's a simple request to provide documents that should be available to the public anyway!

Don't want you wasting taxpayers money needlessly.

Best regards,

Alicia

Clarke, Ian, Westminster City Council

Dear Alicia,

Further to your enquiry, and my letter of 17 March, the public interest
aspect of your request has been considered and it is considered
appropriate to issue a redacted copy of the current contract (as well as a
full copy of the previous contract). A fee will be payable for the cost
of reproducing this information - please see attached fees notice. Please
note that the initial contract ran from 2001-2007.

2001-07 Contract

The initial contract was advertised in the Official Journal of the
European Communities in March 2000 and also in the British housing press.
Five expressions of interest were received and four organisations were
shortlisted and invited to tender, these being:

. WMS Haywards

. Paddington Churches Housing Association

. Notting Hill Housing Trust

. JSS Pinnacle/Places for People

In July 2000, the Contracts Committee awarded preferred bidder status to
PCHA and WMS Haywards.

In December 2000 the Contracts Committee awarded the contract to WMS
Haywards.

2007 Contract

An advert seeking expressions of interested was placed in The Municipal
Journal on 12th October and Inside Housing on 13th October 2007. The
advert also appeared on the Council's website in the same week and was
sent to the Official Journal of the European Union on 10th October 2007.

Six organisations requested the Pre-Qualification Questionnaire and of
these completed questionnaires were received from two organisations. These
were:

. CityWest Homes

. Erinaceous Group Plc

Both organisations were invited to tender and tenders were received from
both.

In July 2007, the Cabinet Member for Housing awarded the contract to
Erinaceous Group plc

I hope that this information is helpful.

Yours sincerely,

Ian Clarke

Interesting. I wonder what costs the Council is expecting to incur in emailing the document to you, considering that they're not allowed to charge for staff time.
