Dear Luke

I have been asked by the department responsible for providing information in response to this request, to ask for clarification regarding what you require.

We have an internal fleet, are you interested where we source that from? we have external hires, we have companies providing us with spares, we have car leases for employees, we hire taxis for transporting people who require transport to school etc etc?

I await your response.

Kind Regards
Sharon

Dear Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council,

To be honest I am annoyed yet not entirely suprised that you waited unitil 2 days before you were due to provide the information to me that I recieved a request asking about clarification.

In response;

Where you procured your internal fleet from; Such as; Refuse trucks, Groundcare vehicles, all the council's building services vehicles etc.

Your service and parts contracts and purchases.

A list of your contractors within your transport department including Bulk Fuels, Tyres Suppliers etc

External Hires

Any other transport contracts such as the Taxis, Staff leasing Vehicles, will this now take another 21 days or do I need to speak to the information commissioner?

I await your impending response.

Yours faithfully,

Luke Feltrup

Dear Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council,

I actually had to contact Sharon Crippin yesterday regarding this as I have already had a delayed response, why are your council so reluctant to release this information? I have had no problems with any other local authorities about this, and just to clarify I will be contacting the Information Commission Offficer regarding this as it is wholly unnaceptable!

Yours faithfully,

Luke Feltrup

Dear Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council,

I have still had no response regarding this, an update would be appreciated!

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Feltrup

I am writing to respond to your freedom of information recently received. 
This request has been handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

The response to your request is detailed below.

We have a contract with taxi operators for - Provision of Special
Educational Needs (SEN) and Social Transport.
It is a Framework Contract with 70+ contractors on - details of
contractors attached.
In terms of our current car lease scheme, all the cars are directly
sourced by NHS Fleet Solutions so we don't have a range of providers that
we deal with. In terms of our old lease car scheme however, the council
still has relationships with the following companies with regards to the
cars still under lease:
Lex Autolease
Automotive Leasing
ING/Alphabet
 
The name of the person at your organization who deals with your
procurement . - Johnathon Cliff

If you are unhappy with any aspect of this response, an independent senior
officer will review this decision. Please let me know if you would like to
arrange this.
You can also complain to the Information Commissioner, who is the
regulator for Freedom of Information. His website is

May I take this opportunity to apologise for the delay in responding to
your request, this is due to the high volumes currently being received.
