Provision of information held by Northumbria Police made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act')

As you may be aware the purpose of the Act is to allow a general right of access to information held at the time of a request, by a Public Authority (including the Police), subject to certain limitations and exemptions.

You asked:

I would like to ask whether your constabulary has ever had any contracts or business relationships with BGI Genomics. If there has been any work undertaken by BGI Genomics with your constabulary, please can you provide a list of these contracts with dates from and to, and a short description of what the contract was for. 

I would like to clarify that I am requesting information on any contracts with BGI Genomics from 1 January 2015 to 1 May 2023.

In Response:

Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with the Procurement Department of Northumbria Police.  I can confirm that the information you have requested is not held by Northumbria Police.  We can find no information that meets the criteria of your submission.
