Please provide details of the contract between Social Security and Inpax (prescribing Adviser). I would like to know the terms of the contract and the service level agreement.
The exact details of the contract are deemed commercially sensitive and are exempt under Article 33(b) (Commercial Interests) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011.
The fees paid in respect of the InPax contract have been published on the register presented to the States Assembly by the Chief Minister:

Article 33 - Commercial interests
Information is qualified exempt information if –
(a) it constitutes a trade secret; or
(b) its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of a person (including the scheduled public authority holding the information).
Public Interest Test
Article 33(b) of the Freedom of Information Law allows an authority to refuse a request for information where its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of a person (including the scheduled public authority holding the information).
Whilst we accept that the public may have an interest in the content of Government of Jersey contracts, we believe releasing this information could affect any future procurement tendering processes.
The Pharmacy Advisor Service is due to be retendered at the end of 2022 and releasing details of the current specification for services, if combined with information on the value of the contract, will be detrimental to the procurement process.
