Temporary Staffing spend by School

Catherine made this Freedom of Information request to Merton Borough 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 Merton Borough Council,

I am interested in the amounts paid by each school in
Borough of Merton 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.

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 broken down by school type (Primary, Secondary, Special Needs or Independent)
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,


Data Protection, Merton Borough Council
