School Supply Spend 2010/2011

Cordelia made this Freedom of Information request to London Borough of Barking and Dagenham Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Barking and Dagenham Borough Council,

I am interested in the amounts paid by each school in Barking and Dagenham Borough Council to third parties in relation to temporary teacher 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 2010/2011.

Yours faithfully,

Cordelia

Corporate Complaints Team, London Borough of Barking and Dagenham Council

Dear Cordelia,

Thank you for your e-mail received on 23 August 2011 requesting
information.

I have sent your request to Janet Ryan in the Children's Services
department who will arrange for the information to be provided to you no
later than 21 September 2011.

Whilst it is the Council's policy to provide information wherever
possible, I need to advise you that there are a number of exemptions under
the Freedom of Information Act 2000. These may prevent me from releasing
all or some of the information you have asked for. You will, however be
informed if this is the case and why.

Yours sincerely

Dear Corporate Complaints Team,

Janet Ryan has not been in touch, and I did not receive the information I requested. It has now been a month since my original request. Please respond promptly with the information I have requested, otherwise I will have no choice to request an internal review.

Yours sincerely,

Cordelia

Dear Cordelia,

Your request for information about how much schools spend on supply staff
has now been considered and the information is attached.

Please be advised that we are unable to provide this information by
individual supplier as this is not information that can be easily pulled
from our main system.  As such in order to comply with this request the
maximum charge for dealing with FOI requests of £450 per request (which
equates to 18 hours work at £25 per hour) would be exceeded.

Further information can be found at the following link:

[1]http://www.education.gov.uk/researchands...

If you need any more information, or if I can be of any further help,
please contact me.

If you are not satisfied with the way that I have dealt with your request
you can make a complaint by writing to the Corporate Complaints & FOI
Team, Room 104, Town Hall, 1 Town Square, Barking IG11 7LU.  Alternatively
you can make your complaint on-line at [2]www.barking-dagenham.gov.uk or
you can e-mail your complaint to [3][Barking and Dagenham Borough Council request email].

If you are still not satisfied, after following our Corporate Complaints
procedure, you can take your complaint to the Information Commissioner. 
Full details of how to do this will be made available on request.

Kind Regards

Veronica Finn Complaints and Information Officer
