Corporate Procurement Strategy and ICT documents

Request

I would like to request some information under the freedom of information act.

I would like the organisation to provide me with the following departmental documents around ICT and corporate procurement.

Many organisations within your region have different document title names:

  1. 2023/24 IT Department Documents ;- these types of documents have detailed information on the department's future plans and strategies. These documents could include: ICT Strategy/Plan, ICT Department Plan, ICT Financial Plan

  2. ICT Org Chart ;- with names and job titles

  3. Corporate Procurement Strategy that covers 2023/24 and more.

For all the documents I have requested, please provide me with the 2023/24 documents, I only want to only receive documents that are live and valid. If the document is a strategic plan (e.g. 2020-2025) that covers a set number of years, please provide me with the 2023 version.

I also require the full version of the documents i have requested, if any parts of the document is missing, please state this in the response

If this cannot be provided, please provide me with information on when this version will be available.

Please acknowledge this request and thanks for your efforts on this request in advance and for the information that's going to follow.

Response

Thank you for your request which has been processed under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA).

The Gambling Commission responses to your enquiries are as follows:

  1. 2023/24 IT Department Documents ;- these types of documents have detailed information on the department's future plans and strategies. These documents could include: ICT Strategy/Plan, ICT Department Plan, ICT Financial Plan

In your email you have specifically requested ‘live’ documents for the years 2023/24. The Gambling Commission 2023/24 business plan, which encompasses the information you have requested is currently in a draft format and therefore is not currently ‘live’.

I can confirm that this information will be available early in the next business year.

  1. ICT Org Chart ;- with names and job titles

Please see attached.

This document contains information relating to identifiable individuals that would constitute personal data.

The Data Protection Act 2018 requires personal data to be processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the data subject. It is the view of the Commission that disclosing this personal information would constitute the disclosure of personal data and would contravene this principle. This information is therefore exempt under section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

  1. Corporate Procurement Strategy that covers 2023/24 and more.

The Gambling Commission does not hold a specific document falling within the scope of this part of your request. However, our approach to procurement can be found on our website:
