The National Archives has previously published information concerning our use of Oracle products which may be of interest to you. Please visit the following webpage to access this information.

Who is responsible for procurement of IT licences?

We are unable to provide you with this information because it would identify a junior member of staff and as such is exempt from release under section 40(2) of the FOIA. However, we have applied the general principle that members of staff at Head of Department level and above are sufficiently senior for their names and/or job titles to already be in the public domain and are therefore not exempt from release.

The departments responsible for the procurement of IT licenses are IT Operations and Human Resources and Organisational Development.

The Head of IT Operations at The National Archives is Julian Muller.

The Head of Human Resources and Organisational Development at The National Archives is Jane Craigie-Payne.
