Dear Mr. McKaig,

Thank you for your response of 08 January 2019 from Dundee City Council.

I would like to appeal against the council’s decision to refuse information as they feel the cost would exceed £600.

All councils now have a sophisticated accounting system which enables information to be downloaded using the in-built software. This software should have filters to enable data without compromising any sensitive information. As an accountant myself I use this facility extensively.

We feel the cost in downloading and assessing the data should not exceed £600 as much of the work will be done by the machine. We therefore would like to appeal against the council’s refusal to provide information as they feel the cost will exceed the threshold.

In particular I am looking for itemized transactions for all suppliers from 1st April 2017 - 31st December 2018 - preferably in a CSV format. We are 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

Should you require more information please contact me at [email address]
