Thank you for publishing your spend data. However, I am struggling to find any of your spending data.

I'd like to make a request under the Freedom of Information act for all transactions over £25,000 at most a month in arrears from the date at which you publish in response to this request.

Please provide the data in a machine readable format (preferably csv). As a minimum, please make sure to include the date, value and recipient of each transaction. Please also provide details on the procurement category of each transaction if you have it.

Your team may also be interested in the guidance on producing spending data:

For the avoidance of doubt, I am making this request under the Freedom of Information Act. I await your response within 20 working days.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust,

In response to your query of what I meant by all transactions over £25,000, I quote Section 1.1 of the Guidance for publishing spend over £25,000:

The Prime Minister wrote to Secretaries of State on 31st May 2010 inviting them to support his drive to improve the transparency of how public funds are used, in order to allow government to be held to account and to drive down costs within government. To reinforce this commitment, each department now has a Minister responsible for transparency issues. As part of this initiative the government made a commitment to publish details of all items of expenditure over £25,000 within central government. This guidance explains how departments should prepare and release details of spending over £25,000. The responsibility for the publication of data rests with departments, but must be consistent with this guidance.

In response to your query about a month in arrears, I quote Section 2.10 from the same document:

Spend is to be published one month in arrears, i.e. by the last working day of the month following the month to which the data relates. If the data is available before the end of the month, it should be published as soon as the department has cleared it for release. This data is to be published in individual monthly files.

For example, if you publish in response to this request in August 2018, please publish the data up to July 2018.

I hope this answers your questions. In addition, after reviewing your data, it seems you have provided full data up to June 2017 but very limited data for July 2017-March 2018. Whilst I am grateful for your cooperation, please can your provide full data of spending over £25,000 from July 2017 to July 2018.

Yours faithfully,

Helen McNally

Dear foi (RBT) Mid Cheshire Tr,

Thank you for providing me with data from July 2017 to August 2018. However, I am requesting you to review the data you have provided me. Firstly, I made a request for all transactions over £25,000 at most a month in arrears from the date at which you publish in response to this request and you have only provided me data for the last 15 months.

Secondly, the data seems to be sparse. For example, there are 12 entries for 21 July 2017, then 4 entries for 27 July 2017, and then nothing until 5 August 2018.

Please could you rectify these issues and can any new data you provide me with be in csv form.

Dear Ms McNally

Invoices are registered every working day. The date is the paid date and we generally only process every two weeks and therefore it depends on the number of invoices which are over £25K on that payment run. We are a small Trust and only a small percentage of our invoices (less than 1%) are over £25,000 and therefore the reason for the small amount and the sparseness.

Dear Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust,

I am contacting you to review the data you supplied me on 28 August 2018, citing the request reference number 4400. In my original request on 24 August 2018, I asked for the data to include the date of each transaction, but the data you provided me only contains the period in which the transaction occurred. Therefore, I am requesting you to provide me with the amended data, in line with my original request.

Yours faithfully,
