I would be grateful if you could provide the following information with regard to your IT estate and IT procurement:


· Do you have a procurement policy which supports the use of the GCloud IT procurement framework?

· Has your organisation adopted a strategy or IT policy guidance for using cloud computing (cloud infrastructure), not
software as a service?

· How many data centres do you have on council premises (secure processing centres which host shared systems)?

· How many third party data centres do you use?

· Do you use cloud hosting for your data (public or private cloud)?

· Expressed in percentage terms, approximately what proportion of your data is held on premise / in third party data centres
/ in the cloud?
