Dear Lincolnshire County Council,

I am interested in the amounts paid by each school in Lincolnshire
LEA to third parties in relation to temporary agency staffing cover. My
hope is to receive an electronic breakdown of amounts paid
through the department's purchase ledger by school.

Notes:
1. I would like the information in electronic format. This should
avoid any printing cost issues.
2. In order to avoid your having to collate information from
peripheral systems, I am willing to accept information only from
your main system (I would like you to advise which system this is).
By main system I mean the system that handles the largest part of
the department's expenditure. If supplier payments are
made through separate systems, then I would like you to choose the
main system for each.
3. The information I require for each school is: School Name;
Supplier name and total amount paid.
4. I would like the information to cover the year 2009/10

Yours faithfully,

Amanda Walker

Infomgt, Lincolnshire County Council
