Temporary Staffing By School

jo faria made this Freedom of Information request to Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council

The request was successful.

From: jo faria

16 February 2010

Dear Solihull Borough Council,

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am interested in the amounts paid by each school in Solihull 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 2008/9. I will
accept 2007/8 figures if this is not possible.

Yours faithfully,

jo faria
