Dear Karen Bradford,

At the Cabinet meeting of 2 Feb 2021, it was reported that around £50k will be spent via an "external events management organisation".

Could you please tell me:
1) Has the External Events Management Organisation already been engaged?

2) If so, when were they selected?
3) If so, who was selected?
4) If so, was the selection made via an open, transparent and competitive process and in accordance with the council's procurement rules?

5) If not, when and how will the selection of the company be undertaken?
6) If not, will the selection be made via an open, transparent and competitive process and in accordance with the council's procurement rules?

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
