RE: FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 REQUEST
West Midlands Fire Service has now completed its search for the information requested on 5th September 2023
Please find below a summary of our findings.
have identified a potential call-off contract awarded by West Midlands Fire Service, but I can’t find details of the framework agreement it was awarded from.
I have attached an Excel file that contains the information I am looking at. The last two columns (“Title of framework used” and “Further framework info”) is where I am missing information. Please could you provide the name of the specific framework agreement or DPS used here. If there is any further info which you think would help me locate the framework agreement (e.g., a link to the framework’s Contract Finder or FTS listing, the framework provider, or a widely-used reference number such as CCS’s RM codes), please use the final column for this.
Please note that I have identified this contract as a possible call-off contract, so there is a chance it is not a call-off. It could be, for instance, procured directly (without being called off from a framework agreement), or could be itself a notice of the establishment of a framework agreement. Therefore, I would kindly ask you to specify in this instance what kind of procurement was used in the “Title of framework used” column.
Please see attached.
If you have any queries about this freedom of information request, please contact us. Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.
