Cost codes

Jenna Corderoy made this Freedom of Information request to Gwynedd Council as part of a batch sent to 415 authorities

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Gwynedd Council,

This is a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act.

I wish to receive a list of your organisation’s cost codes and a description of what each code stands for. I use the term “cost codes” to refer to codes used by the council relating to a specific area of spending. If the council uses a different term for such spending areas, I would like to be informed of such difference.

I would like this information to be presented as follows:

Cost code: xxxx Description: xxxx (what this cost code represents)

I would like to receive this information electronically, in an Excel spreadsheet. If you feel that a substantive response to this request is not possible within a reasonable time frame I would be grateful if you could contact me and provide assistance as to how I can refine the request. I look forward to receiving a response in 20 working days. Many thanks.

Yours faithfully,

Jenna Corderoy

Dear Jenna Corderoy,


Thank you for your recent request. Please see below and attached document
for the information requested:


Please find attached an excel spreadsheet listing generated from our
ledger system detailed as per your request :


Cost code: xxxx Description: xxxx (what this cost code represents)


As our ledger system is an internal system all descriptions are in Welsh.
In order to assist with the understanding I have attached two extra
worksheets indicating the department the cost centres belong to and a
hierarchical structure of the cost centres.

If you are unhappy with the way the Council has handled your request, you

internal review of your case. An internal review will be conducted by the
Monitoring Officer or Head of Service and we will aim to respond within 20
working days. However, if we are unable to complete the review by this
