  1. the identity of the organisation/business/individual service provider to whom the claim relates; and

  2. a copy of the full claim documentation and any associated invoice(s), service level agreement/contract(s) or correspondence relating to this claim.

In answer to the first part of your request, the name of the supplier is Marketing Management.

In answer to the second part of your question, the table below provides the information released on IPSA’s publication website relating to this claim, along with all additional information contained on the invoice.

We hold no further correspondence in relation to this claim. Please note that we have withheld any invoice numbers, contract numbers, BACs code, account numbers, IBAN and CHAPs code for payment as these may be traced back to personal or commercial information. We have withheld this information under Section 31(1)(a) (Law enforcement) of the FOI Act. This section of the Act states that information is exempt if its disclosure under the FOI Act would, or would be likely to, prejudice the prevention (or detection) or crime.

After considering the nature of the withheld information it is our opinion that were a disclosure to be made into the public domain it is possible that this information could be traced back to sensitive personal or commercial information which could be misused for criminal activity. Although we recognise the public interest in transparency surrounding the publication of invoice information there is also a strong public interest in ensuring that as an organisation we are able to protect our service users from the threat of being subjected to criminal activity, which is achieved through our capacity to withhold certain information from disclosure. It is for this reason that we have decided that the application of the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.
