School spend on supply teachers via agencies

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Suffolk County Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Suffolk County Council,

I am interested in the amounts paid by each school within your LEA to third parties in relation to temporary staffing cover. My hope is to receive an electronic breakdown of amounts paid through the department's purchase ledger by school.
Notes:
1. I would like the information in electronic format. This should avoid any printing cost issues.
2. In order to avoid your having to collate information from peripheral systems, I am willing to accept information only from your main system (I would like you to advise which system this is).By main system I mean the system that handles the largest part of the department's expenditure. If supplier payments are made through separate systems, then I would like you to choose the main system for each. 3. The information I require for each school is: School Name;Supplier name and total amount paid.
4. I would like the information to cover the year 2011/12.
If you are unable to provide the exact figures any information covering from April 2011 to April 2012 if full or part would be very useful

Yours faithfully,

Debra Doughty

Information Management Services, Suffolk County Council

In respect of The Data Protection Act and more importantly, in interest of Council Tax payers, this Council has failed to bring clarity to the data that has been provided here.

For example, what is the LLOYDS TSB COMMERCIAL FIN LTD ? This is not a supply teaching agency but a bank; what teaching service are so many primary schools forking out for from the now disbanded "Lloyds TSB"?

Mhmm?
