I would like to request the following breakdown of the Councils IT hardware maintenance contracts and associated costs.
• A list of the models of all physical servers, storage devices, tape libraries and network switches under support contracts.
• The cost and duration of said contracts, with start and end dates and service level associated with the equipment.
• Could you also supply the names of the suppliers of the aforementioned support services for each contract?
• I would also request the name and full contact details of the person/s in your organisation responsible for the maintenance support contracts.
Please see the available table for information in response to your questions via the link below:
In relation to the cost of the contracts, this information is commercially sensitive. As will be evident from the table below, every single contract is due for renewal at some point during 2018 and will therefore be available for tender. To disclose the current cost of the contract may have an impact of the forthcoming tender process and therefore a commercial impact on the council. It is not in the public interest to affect the forthcoming tender processes and this information is therefore exempt pursuant to s. 43 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
