This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

We're waiting for Sebastian Reed to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear NHS Barking and Dagenham Clinical Commissioning Group,

I note from Contracts Finder that NELCSU made a direct award under Lot 1 of the Management Consultancy Framework 2 framework (RM6008) to PeopleToo Limited for £94,000. I sought further information from them about this and they advised I contact you as the procurement was undertaken on behalf of you together with Havering and Redbridge CCGs.

As you will be aware, in order to use the (exceptional) Direct Award route under the RM6008 framework, it is necessary for you to develop a clear statement of requirements, develop direct award criteria for the particular assignment, apply the direct award criteria to the framework catalogue for the 282 suppliers on the appropriate lot and establish which of these provides the most economically advantageous solution.

Please can you provide under the Freedom of Information Act:

1. The Statement of Requirements developed for this work.

2. The Direct Award Criteria selected for this work.

3. Details of how you or NELCSU assessed the 282 potential suppliers against the Statement of Requirements and the Direct Award Criteria to identify that PeopleToo Limited was the most economically advantageous supplier.

In addition, please can you confirm that the price you are paying to PeopleToo Limited is based on the full day rates quoted in their framework submission and that there has been no reduction to the price for this specific piece of work.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Sebastian Reed

Dear Mr Reed

I write regarding your request FOI.18.BDH208, FOI.18.HAV202, FOI.18.RED212
which is being processed under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. It is
with sincere apologies that in line with current Freedom of Information
Act legislation the CCG feels that it must conduct a public interest test
as to whether to apply a ‘qualified’ exemption for commercially sensitive
information as detailed in section 43 of the Act.

We have, as required, applied a prejudice test to determine whether the
release of the information would, or would be likely to, harm someone’s
commercial interests. We will now consider the necessary public interest
element to weigh up the prejudice which may be caused by disclosure
against the likely benefit to the wider public and detail the outcome of
this review in our final response to your request.

The Act makes specific procedural provision for the handling of cases
which require an assessment of the balance of the public interest to be
made. Under section 10(1) of the Act, there is a general time limit of 20
working days for making a response to a request for information. However,
section 10(3) permits a public authority to take an additional, though
‘reasonable’, period of time to reach its final decision in those cases
where a ‘qualified’ exemption is engaged and the balance of the public
interest must be assessed. The CCG has set a new deadline for the final
response to your request which is 14 February 2019.

 

Kind Regards
