Information requested

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 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.


On 21 July 2022, you submitted the following request to SQA, which received the reference number FOI22/23 037.

I wish to obtain the following documents:

  1. ICT/IM&T/IS Strategy- The IT department strategy or plans, highlights their current and future objectives.
  2. ICT Org Chart- A visual document that presents the structure of the IT department, please include name and job titles. If this cannot be sent, please work towards a structure with job titles.
  3. ICT Annual or Business Plan- Like the ICT strategy but is more annually focused.
  4. ICT Capital Programme/budget- A document that shows financials budget on current and future projects.

Clarification Received: I am seeking all the documents for the year 2022. Please provide.

In response we provided the attached spreadsheet, which contained the requested information. It also stated on page 2 of the presentation that we operate on the financial year, from April to March and that the information provided “highlights SQA’s current and future objectives until 31 March 2023.” It also stated that “Objectives for 2023/24 will not be available until after the start of the financial/planning year.”

We consider the new request is asking for the same information that was provided in our response FOI22/23 037 and the information is still current. As stated in the response, the information for 2023/2024 is still under review and will not be available until after the new financial year has started.

We are currently unable to provide a date when the information will be available.
