Work Orders for Fencing at Long Valley/B4

Simon Brown made this Freedom of Information request to Defence Infrastructure Organisation

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

Defence Infrastructure Organisation did not have the information requested.

Dear Defence Infrastructure Organisation,

I would be grateful if you would provide a copy of the following work orders:

1. Construction of a fence at training area B4/Long Valley. This fence was constructed on or around 27th of March 2020 and runs along the western edge of Rushmoor Road.

2. Installation of access gates in the fence referred to in 1. above. The gates were installed in September 2020.

In addition to the work orders please provide a summary of costs incurred. If possible a breakdown of labour and materials for each work order would be of interest but I will accept individual summary totals.

I believe such costs are not recurring and therefore may be disclosed under FOI.

Yours faithfully,

Simon Brown

Dear DIO Sec-Parli (MULTIUSER),

Thank you for the information supplied - however some requested information is missing.

The fence installation (Question 1) has been answered and the works order information received.

The installation of gates (Question 2) has not been answered and the works order information appears to be missing.

To clarify; the fence was installed in March 2020. The additional gates were installed in September 2020.

Please supply works order information instructing installation of gates (as originally requested) as per question 2.

Please let me know if the scope of request is not clear.

Yours sincerely,

Simon Brown

Dear DIO Sec-Parli (MULTIUSER),

Further examination of the documents highlights errors and missing or incomplete data:

Annex B of the response has no data for the Task Order Unique Identifier.

Annex B Section 10 Endorsements of the response is undated and unsigned.

Whilst noting signature may be considered personal data all other fields are within the scope of freedom of information.

I would therefore be most grateful the complete document could be forwarded?

Yours sincerely,

Simon Brown
