Dear Ms Brown,

 

Thank you for your information request of 25 May 2017.  Aberdeen City
Council (ACC) has completed the necessary search for the information
requested.

 

Please provide me with a list of the latest (monthly/quarterly) payment to
supplier or council expenditure of Aberdeen City Council.

 

I am looking for a list of payments made to suppliers of the latest month
or quarter or year. 

 

In that list I need the supplier name, payment date, amount, expense,
type, service description.  

 

Could you please provide me the same or let me know where exactly I will
be able to get this information in your website?

ACC are unable to provide the requested information. Payments made by the
authority are not separated from individuals which could include say
foster payments and those to commercial suppliers so any extract would
include personal information. The authorities audited annual accounts for
2015/16 are on the council’s website and unaudited accounts for 2016/17
will be uploaded for the end of June 2017. (WHERE??)

 

There are 55,900 transactions for May 2017 alone.

 

ACC is unable to provide you with information on a list of the latest
(monthly/quarterly) payment to supplier or council expenditure of Aberdeen
City Council as the cost of providing it has been calculated as being in
excess of the statutory maximum (£600).  To explain this, it would involve
an ACC Officer checking through 55,900 transactions to make sure that the
information provided only relates to suppliers and not to third parties
which may lead to the identification of sensitive personal information. 
This has been calculated at 20 minutes per entry, which equates to 46
hours, at the cost of £690 in total.

 

In order to comply with its obligations under the terms of Section 16 of
the FOISA, ACC hereby give notice that we are refusing your request under
the terms of Section 12 - Excessive Cost of Compliance - of the FOISA.

 

ACC would be happy to discuss ways in which you may refine your request,
so we can provide some information of interest to you within the maximum
cost limits. Please do contact the Information Compliance team, who will
be happy to advise you, if this is something you would like to pursue.

 

We hope this helps with your request.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Grant Webster

Information Compliance Officer
