IT software usage and spend

As per the FOI Act, I would like to request specific information from your Council (Borough/ District/City) regarding the IT software estate currently in place. 

I would specifically like to request the following, in electronic format please: 

What is the current number of staff who use a PC or a laptop within your organisation? 


What are the current Microsoft software licences (server and desktop) that you are using? 

Server, Windows Server, Exchange Server, Skype for Business Server, SQL Server and Desktop, Microsoft 365 E5, PowerBI, Dynamics 365, Project and Visio 

What is your annual IT spend on Microsoft licences? 


Has your organisation moved, or is planning to move, to the Cloud in the next 12 months? 

We are currently migrating to Office365 and Exchange Online and we have active projects to look at further areas of the business. 

Are you due to undertake a review of your software estate in the next 12 months? 

This will be happening prior to the Microsoft license renewal in August 2019. 

What is the name of the decision maker for IT spend in your organisation?
