Yes, some of the applicants are distasteful when they try and dig information out via FOI to use to harass the school and undercut current suppliers, but the answer to that is to supply the information then refuse to deal with them when they ring up looking for a sale, not to play stupid games with supplying the answers to what is a valid FOI request.
    Yes, he is right - and some of us said what he is saying too. But he doesn't have to be such a supercilious, um, person about it. Remember, he REFUSED to come on here and "put us right".

    In fairness he may have expected a hostile reception. It isn't like this is the first time or even the tenth time we've had a very similar go-around on FOI with similar results.

    But yeah, you have a point.

    Were my school subject to FoI, I think I would be setting up an email account which would be used only as the contact email of "the person in charge of purchasing $ Product..." When the marketing guff comes in, it would then be easy to tell that this company had done their research through FoI and ignore them when going for quotes.

    Nothing wrong with that methinks

    that's a good idea- I do that sort of thing at BETT. If I get any sales emails or calls I know if they are from BETT given that they address them to Ms Wi Tch !!
