If you you’re using electronic care planning;  

who is the current supplier;

what is the value of the contract; 

We consider that release of this information is exempt under Section 43(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 – Commercial Interests. Devon County Council considers releasing the value of the contact would likely prejudice the commercial interests of any competitors and this would give an unfair advantage.

We have considered the public interest in this case and we acknowledge that there is a public interest in the transparency around public spending, however, we also consider that there is a public interest in allowing businesses to apply for contracts in a competitive environment, and we therefore, consider that the public interest lies in withholding the information.

when will the contact expire?

The contract will run until we give notice.

If you use paper for care planning, do you have any plans for public tender within the next 12 months?
