Martin Hopkins made this Freedom of Information request to Manchester City Council

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

The request is waiting for clarification. If you are Martin Hopkins, please sign in to send a follow up message.

Dear Manchester City Council,
Dear Oldham Borough Council,

I am interested in the amounts paid by each Sure Start Centre in Manchester LEA to third parties in relation to temporary agency staffing cover. My hope is to receive an electronic breakdown of amounts paid
through the department's purchase ledger by school.

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 2009/10

Yours faithfully,

Martin Hopkins

Manchester City Council

Dear Mr Hopkins

The decision maker who has been allocated your request for information has
asked for clarification regarding your request. This is as follows:

Schools in Manchester do not run SureStart Centres, do you still require
the information?

If I do not hear from you within three months of the date of this letter,
I will assume that you do not wish to pursue your request for information
and I will close my file.

Yours sincerely,
