Government contracts (FOI)
Please could all contracts relating to the Brexit work be published?
The requested contracts are attached below:
Contract for period 02 November to 31 December 2018 (Redacted)
Contract for period 01 January to 31 December 2019 (Redacted)
Minor redactions have been applied under Article 25 (Personal Information) and Article 33 (Commercial Interests) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011.
Article 25 Personal information
(1) Information is absolutely exempt information if it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018.
(2) Information is absolutely exempt information if –
(a) it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is not the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018; and
(b) its supply to a member of the public would contravene any of the data protection principles, as defined in that Law.
(3) In determining for the purposes of this Article whether the lawfulness principle in Article 8(1)(a) of the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 would be contravened by the disclosure of information, paragraph 5(1) of Schedule 2 to that Law (legitimate interests) is to be read as if sub-paragraph (b) (which disapplies the provision where the controller is a public authority) were omitted.
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).
Prejudice / public interest test
Article 33 (b) 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 specific value of contracts between the Government of Jersey and Delta Innovation, we believe that certain of the contract values are commercially sensitive and that the release of this data could affect the negotiation of future contracts and the relationship with Delta Innovation.
