I would like the organisation to provide me with the following departmental documents around ICT and corporate procurement.

Many organisations within your region have different document title names:

  1. 2023/24 IT Department Documents ;- these types of documents have detailed information on the department's future plans and strategies. These documents could include: ICT Strategy/Plan, ICT Department Plan, ICT Financial Plan

For all the documents I have requested, please provide me with the 2023/24 documents, I only want to only receive documents that are live and valid. If the document is a strategic plan (e.g. 2020-2025) that covers a set number of years, please provide me with the 2023 version.

I also require the full version of the documents i have requested, if any parts of the document is missing, please state this in the response
