FOI / 3979 / 2019 - Contracts register

Thank you for your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. I can confirm that Essex County Fire & Rescue Service does hold this information.

Please see below the answer to your request.

Initial Request:

I want to submit a request for some information from the organisation, in relation to their contract’s register.

The contract register should display all the organisations existing/live contracts I would like the register to display the following columns/headings:

1. Contract Reference

2. Contract Title

3. Procurement Category

4. Supplier Name

5. Spend (Total or Annual)

6. Contract Duration

7. Contract Extensions

8. Contract Starting Date

9. Expiration Date

10. Contract Description [Please provide me with as much detail as possible.]

11. Contact Owner (Full contact details if possible.)

12. CPV codes/ProClass

13. Contract Reference


1. For those organisation planning to make an exemption, the spend information I have requested is an overall figure and I am not requesting a complete breakdown of services relating to the spend.

2. If the organisation has a CRM system or a similar system there should be a facility to download and extract contract data.

3. You may forward me a Weblink to a portal to download the contract register, please make sure all of the organisation’s contracts are provided as doing prior research I have found that most organisations have only uploaded a small portion of all of their contracts.

Please do not think that this is the only information I require if you could provide me with more information that would be great.

Contract Data/API Contact Details

14. Can you also provide me with contact details of the person responsible for the actual contract’s register or someone responsible for API? [Name, Job Title, Telephone, Email Address] At the very least provide me with their actual job title.

(Meaning of API “a set of functions and procedures that allow the creation of applications which access the features or data of an operating system, application, or other service.”)

Please provide me with the contract’s register file in an excel format.

Final response:

Our contracts register is published on the East of England Local Government Association website. The link to the register is


The register contains all the information we are required to publish in respect of our obligations.

Thank you for your interest in Essex County Fire & Rescue Service.
