Council Expenditure or Payment to Suppliers for entire 2018

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead,

I'd like to make a request under the Freedom of Information act for all transactions over £500 for 2018. As a minimum, please make sure to include the date, value and recipient of each transaction.

If it would help, I am specifically looking for payments to suppliers who provide a service in Health and Social Care. This would include all suppliers falling under the categories :-

1. Payments to suppliers who provide fostering and adoption services to the Council
2. Payments to suppliers who provide care services to the council. This would include suppliers who provide care under each of below -
a. Children's Residential/ Nursing Care Providers
b. Adult Residential/ Nursing Care Providers
c. Elderly Residential/ Nursing Care Providers
d. Domiciliary Care Home Providers
e. Supported Living Care Home Providers
f. Care at Home Providers
g. Providers who carry out Homeless Services
3. Payments to suppliers who provide Special Education Services

In particular I am looking for itemized transactions (i.e., at the daily level) for suppliers - preferably in CSV format. I look forward to the information at the earliest & I do understand understand the Council joined the Trust halfway through the year.

Thank You,
Yours Faithfully,
Nikhil Prabhu
