Dear Mr Ali,

 

Thank you for your recent communication which is being managed in line
with the Freedom of Information Act under the above reference number.  The
details of your request are outlined below together with the council’s
response.

 

Your request and our response

 

• What are the contractual performance KPI's for this contract?

See specification attached

 

• Suppliers who applied for inclusion on each framework/contract and were
successful & not successful at the PQQ & ITT stages

Open procedure carried out, so one stage only. 5 bids received and 3 were
successful. The names of the unsuccessful suppliers is commercially
sensitive.

 

• Actual spend on this contract/framework (and any sub lots), from the
start of the contract to the current date

£169,210.02

 

• Start date & duration of framework/contract?

Info can be found on the contract register (01/12/2019 – 30/11/2022 with
optional 2 year extension)

 

• Could you please provide a copy of the service/product specification
given to all bidders for when this contract was last advertised?

See specification attached

 

• Is there an extension clause in the framework(s)/contract(s) and, if so,
the duration of the extension?

The contract has an optional 2 year extension period.

 

• Has a decision been made yet on whether the framework(s)/contract(s) are
being either extended or renewed?

As the contract is performing well it will be extended for one year
initially with the option to extend for a further year thereafter, if
performance is maintained.

 

• Who is the senior officer (outside of procurement) responsible for this
contract?

 

Unfortunately we are unable to provide in full the information you have
requested.  We do hold the information but an absolute exemption applies. 
Personal Information (Section 40,2)

Personal data of any other person (third party data) is exempt under
section 40(2) if disclosure would breach one of the data protection
principles. This aspect of Section 40 is an Absolute Exemption and is
therefore not subject to the Public Interest Test.

 

The names of officers working for the Council is personal data specific to
them. It is therefore subject to the provisions of the Data Protection
Act. Information can be withheld if its disclosure would be likely to
breach one or more of the Principles of the Data Protection Act. There is
no prior expectation on the part of team Managers (or other officers
working below the level of Director) that their names and job titles /
positions would be published into the wider public domain under FOI. A
disclosure made under FOI constitutes a publication to the world at large.
We believe that to disclose this would be likely to breach the first
Principle of the Data Protection Act by unfairly contravening their right
to privacy and confidentiality in the work place.

 

You are free to use any information supplied to you for your own use,
including non-commercial research purposes.  However, any other type of
re-use, for example, by publishing the information or issuing copies to
the public will require the permission of the copyright owner.

 

Where the copyright is owned by Thurrock Council, you must apply to the
Council to re-use the information.  Please email
[1][Thurrock Borough Council request email] if you wish to re-use the
information you have been supplied. For information where the copyright is
owned by another person or organisation, you must apply to the copyright
owner to obtain their permission.

 

If you are dissatisfied with the way in which the council have managed
your FOI request you can pursue an Internal Review by contacting us using
the above email address. Your request will be considered by a senior
member of the Information Management Team who will update you with the
outcome of the review. 

 

If you remain unhappy following the outcome of your Internal Review you
may wish to refer your case to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO)
and details of this organisation can be found at [2]www.ico.org.uk .
Please be advised that the ICO will not consider your case until they have
confirmation that you have already been through the Internal Review stage
with the council.

 

Many thanks

 

Kind regards,
