Response


Questions 1-9. The Service is unable to release this information under Section 14 (2) of the Freedom of Information Act – Where a public authority has previously complied with a request for information. The Service has supplied you with substantially similar information on 10 December 2018 and 15 January 2019 and does not feel that a reasonable interval has elapsed between compliance with the previous requests and the making of the current request and no changes to the details of the contract have been made since.

Further to the above questions you have asked specifically for information with reference to the Service's further plans going forward for its mobile phone contracts for both Vodafone and EE. The Service operates through the Crown Commercial Service Framework RM1045 Lot 6. Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service are progressing a review of the current arrangements with a view to formally extend or renew a contract with a provider who can offer suitable coverage for operational requirements before the framework expires in July 2019. The current status of the contracts can be viewed on the recently updated Contracts Register here. The Service's current contracts with EE and Vodafone both have options to extend as detailed in the register.
