Kent County Council

Dear Sir or Madam

 

Although we have carried out an initial search to try and establish if
Kent County Council holds the information you have requested, we believe
that in its current form your request is too broad to enable us to provide
a comprehensive response.

 

Accordingly, please can you be more specific with the following:

 

In your request below where it says 3^rd Party Services/Software, do you
mean 3^rd Party Services i.e. Connect2Kent, or do you mean the 3^rd Party
software system that Connect2Kent uses?

 

For a) Provider, does it mean Connect2Kent or the software that Kent
County Council use? For b) do you mean a description of the services
provided by Connect2Kent, or the software? And c) Does this mean the
annual cost of all the agency workers provided to KCC by Connect2Kent, or
the cost of the software?

 

The 20 working day timescale for providing the information you have
requested will be suspended until we receive clarification from you. On
receipt of the clarification we will inform you of the new latest complete
by  date.

We look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Best regards
