Dear foirequests,

You said "Payment to supplier information is added to our website on a quarterly basis."; however there is no data for 2019/20 financial year on your site. https://www.ealing.gov.uk/info/201041/co...

I don't believe that the possession of an inadequate data storage/retrieval system or data not being help in one central location warrants the use of an exclusion under the FOI Act and as such I would like to request an Internal Review.

Hence, I would like to appeal against the council’s decision to refuse information as they feel the cost would exceed £450. We feel the cost in downloading and assessing the data should not exceed the limit as much of the work would be done by the accounting system. We therefore would like to appeal against the council’s refusal to provide information as they feel the cost will exceed the threshold.

In particular I am looking for itemized transactions for all suppliers - preferably in a CSV format. We
are looking for payments to suppliers who provide a service in Health and Social Care. This would include all suppliers falling under the following categories :-

Dear foirequests,

May I request an update at this point?

PS: Council has provided us with data in the past (by Un-redacting several payments to IFAs etc.). It should be easier for the Council to do this time around, for a shorter time-period. Hence, request Council to please take another look at my appeal & kindly revert with it's decision or fulfillment of data request.

Thank you,
