FOI Request Printing Frameworks
I would like to request the following information from the local authority in regards to printing frameworks/contracts:
a) Total expenditure on the part of the local council allotted to printing companies within the borders of the constituency
b) Total expenditure on the part of the council allotted to printing companies based in Scotland but outside the constituency
c) Total expenditure on the part of the council allotted to printing companies based outside of Scotland with no manufacturing base or HQ in Scotland
d) The outlines of the decision making process for award of printing contracts/jobs in each framework e.g. price, capability, location etc.
e) A list of participants in all frameworks and decision making process
a-c). Moray Council does not categorise our suppliers by geographical area or indeed commodity therefore under section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002- this information is not held. .
d and e) The current printing framework we use is a national framework tendered by the Scottish Government Procurement and Commercial Directorate. As such, the enquirer would have to direct these questions to that organisation.
