“Under the Freedom of Information Act, I would request you to respond to questions included in the attachment.”

Our response

Where you have stated in your request ‘plans to procure’ we have taken this to mean plans to tender. However, in accordance with the duty to provide information and assistance in accordance with section 16 of FOIA, we have confirmed in our response where we have plans to renew existing contracts and their costs.

I confirm that Ordnance Survey does hold some of the information you have requested.

A copy of the information, which can be disclosed, is attached in the format you requested, namely an Excel spreadsheet. Where the information is not held, this is stated in the spreadsheet.
