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

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

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

4.  How many third party data centres do you use?

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