Temporary Spending by Schools 2009/2010
Andrew Brown made this Freedom of Information request to Leicester City Council
This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.
Dear Leicester City Council,
I am interested in the amounts paid by each school in Leicester City Council 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
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
5. In the event that the supplier names are not available, then
please provide the total amount spent by each individual school as
