Cost codes

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Staffordshire County 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.

Yours faithfully,

Jenna Corderoy

Dear Jenna

I forwarded your request to the relevant department last week. However, they have asked me to contact you to ask for clarification.

By 'cost codes', are you looking for a list of Cost Centres (which describe the service area e.g. Social Care, Finance etc.), or Cost Elements (which describe the type of expenditure e.g. salaries, stationery etc.)?

Regards
