Server Contracts (5374_18)


I would like to request the following breakdown of the Colleges Data Centre IT hardware maintenance contracts/warranties and their associated costs.

A list of the models of all physical servers, storage devices, tape libraries and network switches under support contracts or warranty

The cost and duration of said contracts, with start and end dates and service level associated with the equipment.

Could you also supply the names of the suppliers of the aforementioned support services for each contract?

I would also request the name and full contact details of the person/s in your organisation responsible for the maintenance support contracts.

Should you note record this information or it be too time consuming, I would be willing to accept the information from the first bullet point.


We can confirm that relevant information is held by West Midlands Police. However, while the majority of the information is attached to this email I am afraid that I am not required to release all of the information requested.




The withheld information is exempt by virtue of the following exemptions


Section 31 (1) (a) (b)  (Law enforcement)


These exemptions and explanatory notes are shown here:


In line with the above, I am required to complete a Prejudice Test/Public Interest Test (PIT) on disclosure. Please find this PIT attached .
