Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50131138
  • Date: 19 June 2008
  • Public Authority: Mid Suffolk District Council
  • Summary: The complainant requested the Council to release a copy of the tendering document submitted by the contractor awarded the contract to carry out the repairs, maintenance and work at Mid Suffolk Leisure Centre for compliance with the Disability Discrimination Act. The Council responded informing the complainant that it was willing to make a redacted version of the document available for his inspection. However, it advised the complainant that it was unwilling to disclose the financial details submitted by the contractor (mainly the price quoted for each task to be undertaken) as it considered this information was exempt from disclosure under section 43 of the Act. The Commissioner considered the requested information and concluded that section 43(2) of the Act is not engaged. He has therefore requested the Council to disclose the requested information within 35 days of this Notice.
