Dear Bracknell Forest Borough Council,
I am trying to establish local authorities procedures for recruitment; specifically applicant tracking systems for my research project.
Do you use an Applicant Tracking System (ATS)?
If you do use an ATS, who is the supplier of your current ATS?
If you do use an ATS, when is the contract end-date with your current supplier?
If you do use an ATS, did you buy your current ATS through a framework?
If you did buy through a framework, which framework?
If you did not buy through a framework, did you contract direct without any tendering process?
If you bought through a framework, did you call off or did you conduct a mini-competition?
Thank you in advance for your help.
Dear Charley Hill
Thank you for your request for information, below, which was received by the Council (03/09/2021) and we will answer your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. The FOI Act obliges us to respond to requests promptly, and in any case no later than 20 working days (by 01/10/2021) unless it is necessary to consider the public interest, in which case a full response must be provided within such a time as is reasonable in the circumstances and I will write to you again if this occurs.
The Council is fully utilising its facilities in order to complete all freedom information requests and subject access requests within the statutory time scale. However, whilst we are making every effort to fulfil every request, it is acknowledged both by the Council and the ICO that sometimes other pressures will have to take priority during this difficult time and people may experience unavoidable delays to their FOI and SAR response times. We thank you for your patience in this challenging time.
If you have any queries about this letter, please contact me. Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future correspondence.
