Council Expenditure or Payment to Suppliers from Jan to June 2020

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Aberdeen City Council,

I'd like to make a request under the Freedom of Information act for all transactions over £500 from 1st Jan 2020 to 30th June 2020. As a minimum, please make sure to include the date, value and recipient of each transaction. Please also provide details on the procurement category of each transaction if you have it.

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 following 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 the categories 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 for suppliers from Jan to June 2020 - preferably in CSV format. For avoidance of doubt, I am making this request under the Freedom of Information Act. I await your response within 20 working days.

Thank you,
Yours faithfully,
Nikhil Prabhu

Dear Mr Prabhu,

 

Thank you for your information request of 18 August 2020 and please accept
our sincere apologies for delay in providing the response to you. 
Aberdeen City Council (ACC) has completed the necessary search for the
information requested. Our response is now detailed below.

 

I'd like to make a request under the Freedom of Information act for all
transactions over £500 from 1st Jan 2020 to 30th June 2020. As a minimum,
please make sure to include the date, value and recipient of each
transaction. Please also provide details on the procurement category of
each transaction if you have it.

 

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 following 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 the categories
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 for suppliers from
Jan to June 2020 - preferably in CSV format.

 

Please see attached: FOI-20-0808 Payments.

 

Please note that the attached document contains all transactions over £500
from 1 Jan 2020 to 30 June 2020. We are unable to specify payments made to
Health and Social Care suppliers as we do not hold the information in this
format.

 

We are unable to specify payments to suppliers who provide a service in
Health and Social Care as it is not held by ACC.  In order to comply with
our obligations under the terms of Section 17 of the FOISA, we hereby give
notice that this information is not held by us. 

 

 

INFORMATION ABOUT THE HANDLING OF YOUR REQUEST

 

We handled your request for information in accordance with the provisions
of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. Please refer to
