Request for information – FOI13348
Thank you for your e-mail of 10 January 2013, requesting information from Ordnance Survey under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) 2000.
I confirm that Ordnance Survey does hold the information you have requested and we respond to each of your questions in turn:
1. Which Director is responsible for Fleet Management?
Ian Nunn – Director of Finance & Corporate Services
2. Who currently provides your fleet management?
3. How much do you currently pay for your fleet management?
This information is exempt under Section 21 of the FOIA ‘Information Accessible to applicant by other means’, which is an absolute exemption and requires no public interest test.
This is because, under the Government transparency agenda, Ordnance Survey routinely publishes its expenditure greater than £500 on a monthly basis, and the payments made to Leasedrive Velo are detailed within our transparency agenda.
4. How many vehicles does Ordnance Survey currently have?
5. Are all of your vehicles owned by Ordnance Survey?
None are owned, all are leased.
As the requested information has been provided, or has been exempt from disclosure under an absolute exemption, we have determined the Public interest consideration (section 17 FOIA) is not applicable in this instance.
Your enquiry has been processed according to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) 2000. If you are unhappy with our response, you may request an internal review with our FOI Internal Review Officer, by contacting them as follows:

- Failed to provide the information you have requested
