Dear South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust (Northern Ireland),

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust (Northern Ireland)'s handling of my FOI request 'Council (Trust) Expenditure or Payment to Suppliers'.

[ GIVE DETAILS ABOUT YOUR COMPLAINT HERE ]

I would like to appeal against the Trust’s decision to refuse information as they feel the cost of complying with the request would exceed the appropriate limit.

All finance departments now have a sophisticated accounting system which enables information to be downloaded using in-built software. This software should have filters to enable data without compromising any sensitive information. As an accountant myself I use this facility extensively.

We feel the cost in downloading and assessing the data should not exceed the appropriate limit or £500 as much of the work would be done by the machine itself. We therefore would like to appeal against the Trust'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 for a 3 month period ONLY, from 1st January 2019 - 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 :-

1. Payments to suppliers who provide fostering and adoption services to the Trust
2. Payments to suppliers who provide care services to the Trust. 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

Please take a look at a successful request from 2012 for 10 days payments from the Trust.
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/s...

To narrow my scope -- We are looking for payments to suppliers who provide a service in Health and Social Care ONLY.

I sincerely hope the Trust may now accommodate my request.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...

Thank you very much & Kind Regards,
Yours Faithfully,
