Dear College of Policing Limited,

I'd like to make a request under the Freedom of Information act for all transactions over £25,000 to 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:
https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio....

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,

George Brown

Good morning,

Thank you for your email. Your request has been allocated to a member of the team and we will aim to respond within 20 working days.

Can I just clarify with you the timeframe of your request? Is it dating back to September?

Furthermore, just to let you know, we are in the process of implementing a system so that we can regularly publish this information but unfortunately we are not quite there yet.

Kind regards,

Kate.

Good morning,

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

Can you please clarify the relevant time frame for your request?

We are in the process of implementing a system whereby we can regularly publish such information but we are unfortunately not quite there yet.

Dear College FOI,

Thank you for your email. We need the data from the very first date you have records or if that's not possible then from January 2012.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Spend Network,

Thank you for your email clarifying your request. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide the data for such a large time period and would ask that you consider further refining your request.

For information, you may wish to review the following letter from our disclosure log which you can access here https://www.college.police.uk/FOI/Docume...

It was determined during the scoping exercise for the above letter that the College is only able to provide 25 months' worth of transactions inside the FOI costs limit of 18 hours. We would therefore be grateful if you would confirm which 25 month period you would like us to consider for your request.

When we have sufficient clarity on the parameters of data required, we will formally consider your FOI request.

Kind regards
Jessica Hetherington
Legal Services Manager

As my colleague has highlighted below this information is already available up until the end of August 2018. Would you be happy to refine your request from then?

Thanks and regards,

Dear College FOI,

Thank you for providing me with your data, I appreciate your cooperation. Please could you send me the previous 25 months of data without the FOI response attached.

Yours sincerely,

College FOI, College of Policing Limited

Dear Spend Network,

I believe this information was previously disclosed to yourself under FOIA-2018-0075 (see link).

Dear College FOI,

The previous response you sent me included a spreadsheet from October 2018 to January 2019. But the data provided to me in the link under FOIA-2018-0075 is from August 2016 to August 2018 and has the FOI response attached to it.

Please could you send me the data from August 2016 to August 2018 without the FOI response. In addition, please could you also send me the data for September 2018, to avoid missing the month in between the time frames of these two spreadsheets.

Yours sincerely,

George Brown

Good morning Mr Brown,

Many apologies about the delay and complications surrounding providing you with the data.

I have attached the two spreadsheets you requested, without the FOI responses, to this email.

In relation to the data for September 2018, I have to process it as another request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. Therefore, we will aim to respond to you within 20 working days.

If you have any further questions in the meantime, please feel free to email back in.

Kind regards,

Kate.
