(PLEASE NOTE: Each of Appendices A, B and C to Appendix 1 are not for publication by reason of being confidential by virtue of Section 100A(2) of the Local Government Act 1972 and/or exempt by virtue of paragraph 3 of part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 as each Appendix contains confidential information relating to tenders and the disclosure of that information is either (i) prohibited by or under an enactment, namely Regulation 21 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 or is (ii) information relating to the business affairs of bidders in a confidential procurement. That confidential information is relevant to this procurement and probably also to other procurements in the local government sector given the limited number of potential contractors in the market. The information therefore has a high commercial value. In the event that the Council fails to keep the information confidential then the aggrieved bidder may be able to bring a very substantial claim in damages against the Council to cover its losses. In these circumstances the public interest in the Council withholding the information and protecting itself from litigation outweighs any interest in disclosing the information particularly where as much information as possible has been made available to the public in the open parts of the report)
