Date Responded 23 June 2023

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’m seeking copies of any of the following documents entered into by Northumbria Police in relation to its use of services provided by Equifax:

a. Data processing contract(s)

b. Memorandum(s) of understanding

c. Service level agreement(s)

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 as we don’t have a contract with Equifax.

You should note that had information been held exemptions could have been applied to withhold where deemed necessary.
