Dear Hambleton District Council,
This is a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act.
I wish to receive a list of your organisation’s cost codes and a description of what each code stands for. I use the term “cost codes” to refer to codes used by the council relating to a specific area of spending. If the council uses a different term for such spending areas, I would like to be informed of such difference.
I would like this information to be presented as follows:
Cost code: xxxx Description: xxxx (what this cost code represents)
I would like to receive this information electronically, in an Excel spreadsheet. If you feel that a substantive response to this request is not possible within a reasonable time frame I would be grateful if you could contact me and provide assistance as to how I can refine the request. I look forward to receiving a response in 20 working days. Many thanks.
Thank you for your contact. Should a response be required, this will be sent to you within the next 10 working days.

I write to try and clarify your FOI request – you ask for cost codes used
by the council relating to a specific area of spending. Hambleton does not
use this terminology so I ask if you want our cost centres e.g. customer
services or our account codes e.g. stationary?
Finally I would like to clarify the list you require – would you like all
codes ever set up, all those currently available to have items posted to
or those that have had actuals posted in in this/last financial year?
Apologies for my delayed response. I realise this might be treated as a new request.
Regarding the clarification, let's go with cost centres and account codes.
Let's go with actuals posted in this/last financial year. Many thanks.
