Dear Northamptonshire County Council,

In the quarter 4 transaction report there are 10 payments, each of £3,199. They are classified as
Executive Support PROF, CONSULTANCY & HIRED SERVICES. Could you please clarify why such payments are being paid in this manner, which seem to contradict the purpose of the GPC cards, namely - A GPC is essentially a company credit card issued by the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) on behalf of LGSS that eligible council staff can apply for. It can be used to pay for goods and services where suppliers accept MasterCard. GPCs are an alternative method of payment for low value, one off payments, goods or services that need to be purchased quickly and other one off expenditure.

Can you also advise of the nature of the services provided,

Yours faithfully,

William Rowlett

Freedom of Information,

Dear Mr Rowlett,

 

Further to our e mail below.

 

The service area have advised the following in response to your question

 

Children’s Services recruited a number International Social Workers from
South Africa/Zimbabwe.  These costs concern Visa Application and 3 Years
Health Insurance.  We could only make payment via GPC as the provider
would not accept procurement via purchase order route.

 

Kind regards
