Terms of Reference and price paid for Javelin Park Value for Money analysis

Currently waiting for a response from Gloucestershire County Council, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear FOI team,

With apologies in advance for the demands on your time, I respectfully request:

(1) A copy of the Terms of Reference, deliverables or other text setting out the work to be completed, given to Ernst and Young for each and every Value for Money report, and/or Explanatory Note in relation to the Javelin Park Energy From Waste Incinerator.

This should include, but not be limited to, the ToRs (etc.) for the documents published on 20th December 2018 at https://www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/counc...

(2) Details of the agreed price and/or the final paid amount for this work;

With respect to the report dated 19th December 2018 and titled ‘Residual Waste Public Private Partnership (PPP) Project - Explanatory note of financial information released under Freedom of Information (FOI)’ I additional request:

(3) Details of the date on which Ernst and Young were first contacted to undertake this work, the data on which terms of reference or scope of the work was agreed, and the date on which any drafts of this work were delivered to the responsible party at GCC

Given this request relates to a topic of current public interest, I would kindly ask that a response is given priority.

Please consider this request under the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) as it relates to a project with major environmental impacts, including air quality implications and waste disposal. In this, would also like to draw attention to the ICO’s previous comments on the timeliness of responses to my previous requests in relation to this project, and to the reduced time-limits set out in law under the EIRs.

I have intentionally kept the inquiry to a minimum to facilitate a rapid reply. If for any reason there is a delay in collating documents relating to the earlier reports (before the document dated 19th December 2018) or to the costings, I would be happy to receive replies in stages.

For the avoidance of doubt, my interest in this information is to establish: (a) the price paid to the consultant for this work; (b) the extent to which the terms of reference or instructions to the consultant require them to provide ‘independent analysis’. If there is an alternative way this information can easily be provided, I am happy to discuss this.

With best regards

Tim Davies

Gloucestershire CC, Gloucestershire County Council
