Dear Department of Energy and Climate Change,

I am interested in financial expenditure at DECC. In essence I would like a summary of amounts paid out by DECC per annum, per supplier.

By way of clarification:

1. I want the information in electronic format.
2. I require only the total paid per supplier.
3. I would like to include amounts paid as grants as well as for goods and services supplied.
4. I only require information from the main DECC system -
peripheral systems can be ignored.
5. I would like information for the most recent full financial year if possible. Otherwise an earlier year would be acceptable.
6. For each supplier I require the following information - Name, postcode, amount paid.

Yours faithfully,

Francis Irving
