Temporary Spending by Schools Financial Year 2010/2011

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.

The request was refused by Leicester City Council.

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 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 financial year 2010/11
5. In the event that the supplier names are not available, then please provide the total amount spent by each individual school as an alternative.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Brown
