Dear Nikhil,
Thank you for your email to East Dunbartonshire Council,

East Dunbartonshire Council does not keep the information requested in a
collated form and in order to provide the information a manual adjustment
of our records would be required. This is in line with GDPR & Commercially
sensitive information manual redaction. The costs of obtaining this
information would incur fees that would exceed the upper cost limit of
£600 as set out in the Fees regulations of Annex 3 of the Code of Practice
on the Discharge of Functions by Public Authorities under the Freedom of
Information (Scotland) Act 2002 and we are therefore unable to release the
information.

The cost was calculated as follows:

Staff time:           £ 8.50  x 35 hours                 £297.50
                         £14.00 x 35 hours                 £490.00 
                                               £787.50     

Total cost = £787.50

Would it be possible to refine the terms of your request in order to bring
it under the cost limit? 

If you are dissatisfied with the way in which East Dunbartonshire Council
responded to your request, you are entitled to require the Council to
review its decision. The review will be handled by staff who were not
involved in the original decision. Please note that in order for a review
to take place you must:
·        Lodge a written requirement for a review within 40 working days
of the date of this letter
·        Include a correspondence address and a description of the
original request and the reason why you are dissatisfied.
·        Address your request to the Freedom of Information Officer:

working days of receipt of your request. The notice will state the
findings of the review as well as details of how to appeal to the Scottish
Information Commissioner if you are still dissatisfied with the Council’s
response. You must request an internal review by the Council before a
complaint can be directed to the Scottish Information Commissioner.

Dear East Dunbartonshire Council,

Thank you for your response.

Per your suggestion, I would like to refine the terms of my request in order to bring it under the cost limit. If it would help, I am specifically looking for payments to suppliers who ONLY provide a service in Health and Social Care for the period JUL 2019 to DEC 2019'. 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 sincerely hope the Council may now accommodate my request.

Thank You,
Yours Faithfully,
Nikhil Prabhu

Dear East Dunbartonshire Council,

Thank you so much for your response!
However, we would just like to know why "Children's Special Education Services" spend was left out?
