PE Business Development, Cambridgeshire County Council

Dear Mr Taylor,

I write further in relation to your request for release of the PFI contract. Having liaised with the relevant department, they have asked me to seek clarification from you:

The Contract Documentation for the PFI Contract is fairly extensive and complex.
It contains many items and financial details that we are not allowed to release due to confidentiality clauses. If you could advise us which areas you are interested in, we can then specifically seek out the relevant sections and the information which can be supplied to you, making redactions where necessary.

Once I hear back from you, I will update the team so they can continue with your request.

With many thanks & kind regards,


Tessa Adams
