This information should be available and is required to be detailed. For requests 1 to 5, the framework agreement is required to contain all of the requested information so providing the framework agreement will cover those requests and will not be an arduous task. For 1 to 5 I effectively need all of the documentation published at the time of the original tender and the final framework agreement. For request 7 (7a to 7i), again, all of the requested information is required as part of awarding contracts under the framework agreement as per the PCR 2015. I appreciate that it may take some time to gather the information for each contract however I will be happy to receive requests 1 to 6 initially which should not take much time to gather and then receive request 7 for each contract as and when the information is provided. Many thanks and regards, [name redacted]
