The request was successful.

Dear Aberdeen City Council,

As in the past, I would like to make an FOI request for all payments to suppliers who provided a service in Health and Social Care from Jan-June 2021. 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.

This would include all suppliers falling under the categories :-

1. Children's services - Fostering & adoption (including payments made to independent fostering agencies and for in-house fostering), residential care, SEN (special education services)
2. Adult & elderly services - Residential/nursing care, domiciliary & supported living, care at home providers
3. Providers who carry out homeless services

In particular I am looking for itemized transactions for these suppliers - preferably in CSV format. I look forward to the information at the earliest.

Thank you,
Yours faithfully,
Nikhil Prabhu

Title of request: Council Expenditure

Dear Nikhil Prabhu,

Thank you for your information request. We have completed the necessary
search for the information requested. Our response is now detailed below.

As in the past, I would like to make an FOI request for all payments to
suppliers who provided a service in Health and Social Care from Jan-June
2021. 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.

This would include all suppliers falling under the categories :-

1. Children's services - Fostering & adoption (including payments made to
independent fostering agencies and for in-house fostering), residential
care, SEN (special education services) 2. Adult & elderly services -
Residential/nursing care, domiciliary & supported living, care at home
providers 3. Providers who carry out homeless services

Attached is a spreadsheet giving all payments made to suppliers between
January and June 2021. We are unable to split these into the categories
requested as we would need to check the payments and this would result in
excessive costs.

The full details of organisations and any covid grants they received is
not included in accordance with section 35(1) of the Freedom of
Information (Scotland) Act 2002 'law enforcement', due to significant
concern that this information, if released into the public domain, could
be used to support a fraudulent application

We are unable to provide you with information on covid grants as it is
exempt from disclosure. In order to comply with its obligations under the
terms of Section 16 of the FOISA we are required to tell you that we are
refusing your request under the terms of Section 35(1) - Prevention and
Detection of Crime - of the FOISA.

We handled your request for information in accordance with the provisions
of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

If you are dissatisfied with the way we have handled your request or the
content of it, you are entitled to ask for an appeal. You can do this from
your [1]Aberdeen City Council self service account.

For more information on your right to review, please visit [2]Freedom of
Information Review and Appeals.

We hope this helps with your request.
