Council Expenditure or Payment to Suppliers from July to December 2020

Nikhil Prabhu made this Freedom of Information request to Torfaen Council

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

Dear Torfaen 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
