Agency spend in schools 10/11

Cambridgeshire County Council Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear Cambridgeshire County Council,

I am interested in the amounts paid by each school in
Cambridgeshire LEA to third parties in relation to temporary
staffing cover. My hope is to receive an electronic breakdown of
amounts paid through the department's purchase ledger by school.

Notes:
1. I would like the information in electronic format. This should
avoid any printing cost issues.
2. In order to avoid your having to collate information from
peripheral systems, I am willing to accept information only from
your main system (I would like you to advise which system this
is).By main system I mean the system that handles the largest part
of the department's expenditure. If supplier payments are made
through
separate systems, then I would like you to choose the main system
for each.
3. The information I require for each school is: School
Name;Supplier name and total amount paid.
4. I would like the information to cover the year 2010/11.

Yours faithfully,

Fiona Baker

FOI, Cambridgeshire County Council

Dear Ms Baker

I write with reference to your request of 30 March 2011 as follows:

Agency spend in schools

I can inform you that we are unable to provide you with the information
as the Council does not hold the information requested.

Schools pay for temporary staff cover through their own financial
systems; therefore we do not hold details about how much each school has
spent with different suppliers in 2010/11. This information would be
held separately by each individual school in the county.
http://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/educati...

We do receive summary details from schools every year providing us with
the total sum each has spent on supply teachers and agency supply staff
(although this would not include a breakdown by supplier). We would
expect to have received this data from the schools by the end of June
and you are welcome to submit a request for this information after that
point.

I hope this information is helpful but if you are unhappy with the
service you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a
complaint or request a review, you should write to Sandra Taylor,
Corporate Information Manager, Box Res 1405, Shire Hall, Cambridge CB3
0AP within 40 days of the date of this letter.

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner's Office
(ICO) for a decision. Generally, the ICO will not undertake a review or
make a decision on a request until the internal review process has been
completed. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information
Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire,
SK9 5AF.
