ANNEX A
REASONS FOR NOT PROVIDING INFORMATION

The Scottish Government does not have all the information requested.

The Scottish Government does not have the information regarding the total value of awards made for consultancy services in the last the three financial years in the format you requested. This is due to the way the Transport Scotland’s contract spend data was recorded for the financial years 2016/2017 and 2017/2018.

This is a formal notice under section 17(1) of FOISA that the Scottish Government does not have the information you have requested.

The total spend data on consultancy services is provided at Annex B attached.
