Council Expenditure or Payment to Suppliers from July to December 2020

The request was successful.

Dear Caerphilly County Borough Council,

I'd like to make a request under the Freedom of Information act for all transactions over £500 from 1st July 2020 to 31st December 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 & any additional descriptors.

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 July to December 2020 - preferably in CSV format. For avoidance of doubt, I am making this request under the Freedom of Information Act. I await your response in ~20 working days.

Thank you,
Yours faithfully,
Nikhil Prabhu

Dear WWW: FOI, CORPORATE INFORMATION GOVERNANCE UNIT,

Thank you for this.

I would just like to note that the total spend for this period (Jul-Dec 2020) is ~£16.3 million; whereas for the preceding 6-month period (i.e. Jan-Jun 2020), it was ~£30 million. So the difference is almost double. Based on this, may I please request you to check your records again to see if anything was missed out?

Thank you,
Kind Regards,
Nikhil Prabhu
