Thank you for your enquiry of 16th February 2017, in which you asked for information about ICT documents at The National Archives.

Your request has been handled under the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000. The FOI Act gives you the right to know whether we hold the information you want and to have it communicated to you, subject to any exemptions which may apply.

I can confirm that The National Archives holds information relevant to your request.

Most of the information that you have requested was provided to you in October 2016. Please see attached link to The National Archives’ response to that request:

For clarity, I have broken down your new response and any additional information is specified below:

1. ICT Strategy- I require the document that hold future plan and strategy of the organisation’s ICT department.
This is answered in section 2 of the response given in October 2016. I can confirm that this information is still accurate and we plan to publish the strategy on our website in the first financial quarter of 2017.
2. ICT Departmental Business Plan
This is answered in section 2 of the response given in October 2016. I can confirm that this information is still accurate.

You have additionally asked for the following information and we are pleased to be able to provide this information to you.
5. ICT Capital budgets and programmes

Capital budgets do not form part of The National Archives’ ICT strategy. Capital spend is, however, included in this year’s 2015-2016 annual report and accounts; please see below link to view this document. For your reference the capital information starts on page 90. The next version of our annual report and accounts will be available in early July 2017 and will cover the financial year 2016-2017. This will also be published and freely available on our website.

Please can you provide me with their direct contact details including their
Full Name, Actual Job Title, Contact Number and Direct Email Address?

Can you please provide me with a direct link to this committee?

As I am not clear what information you are requesting and no reply has been received to date, this part of your request has not been addressed in this response. I will be happy to address this at a later stage once clarification has been received from you. However at this stage as I have received no further clarification on this point The National Archives now considers this information request answered in full.
