This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Derbyshire County Council,

1) As a Public Contracting Authority, the Council has a Regulatory 113 (7) reporting obligation. Can you please confirm the relevant details for the financial year 2016/17 by providing the following:

• %age invoices paid within 30 days
• Interest (£’s) paid to suppliers
• Interest (£’s),whether or not claimed, liable to be paid to suppliers
• Number of invoices not paid within 30 days*

2) Please confirm whether your answer to question one includes or excludes payments relating to personal budgets (audults & Children)?

3) Please explain the criteria you have used to determine who are the 1st tier suppliers/primary contractors falling in scope?

*Whilst disclosure of the Number of invoices not paid within 30 days (i.e. paid late) is not required as part of the Regulation 113 (7) reporting requirement this information would be known and recorded when calculating the amount of interest liable to be paid if claimed.

Link to Guidance Notes PPN 05/15 & 03/16 as issued by Crown Commercial Services are included below.

If the statutory disclosure has already been made and the information is already published on the Council's website, please provide a link to the relevant web page.

Yours faithfully,
Mrs K Parker
