Transactions over £25,000 from January 2012 to July 2018

The request was successful.

Dear South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust,

I'd like to make a request under the Freedom of Information act for all transactions over £25,000 from January 2012 to July 2018. 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.

Please note that there is a legal requirement for you to publish this data, but after searching your website, I could not find it anywhere. If the information is available, please can you direct me to it?

Your team may be interested in the guidance on producing spending data:
https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio.... This letter makes it clear that this guidance applies to the NHS: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/sy....

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,

Helen McNally

Dear South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust's handling of my FOI request 'Transactions over £25,000 from January 2012 to July 2018'.

On 3 September 2018, I sent you a FOI request for your expenditure over £25,000 from January 2012 to July 2018. I never received any response.

The guidance for publishing spend data for government departments states:
2.10 Spend is to be published one month in arrears, ie 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.
2.11 You should not hold up the publication of your data where you have unresolved individual queries. You should publish the cleared data within the publication timescales, and amend the data at a later date if necessary. See section 2.5 for further detail on applying redactions to the data.

Please see here for more details: https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio.... This letter makes it clear that this guidance applies to the NHS: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/sy....

This means that the data requested should already be published. For this reason, I would like to request an Internal Review of the initial response to my Freedom of Information request.

I await your response within 20 working days.

Yours faithfully,

Spend Network

Thank you for your email.

Do you have the 4 digit reference number which the Trust would have provided to you as part of your acknowledgement to your request for information? Also, what was the name of the person who requested the information?

Once I have this information I can look into your request further.

Dear foi.admin (SOUTH TEES HOSPITALS NHS FOUNDATION TRUST),

I never received an acknowledgement so cannot give you a reference number. The person who asked for the request was Helen McNally who has now left the company, so all correspondence will go through me now.

Hi George

The only request that Helen McNally sent was for FOI 5090 which has been forwarded onto her/you. The Trust has no record of receiving a request from Helen on the 3rd September.

Dear foi.admin (SOUTH TEES HOSPITALS NHS FOUNDATION TRUST),

If there is no record of a request, then please take this as a request under the Freedom of Information act for all transactions over £25,000 from January 2012 to August 2018. 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.

Please note that there is a legal requirement for you to publish this data, but after searching your website, I could not find it anywhere. If the information is available, please can you direct me to it?

Your team may be interested in the guidance on producing spending data:
https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio. This letter makes it clear that this guidance applies to the NHS: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/sy.

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 Ms McNally

This information has already been provided to you in FOI Request 5090, with the exception of data for April 2018 - August 2018.

A new request (FOI 5505) was put in yesterday requesting data for April 2018 - August 2018 and this is currently in progress.

I will therefore not log the below request as a new FOI request.

Dear foi.admin (SOUTH TEES HOSPITALS NHS FOUNDATION TRUST),

After reviewing Request 5505, I can see that actually I have data up to June 2018. However, I have only received data as far back as April 2015. Please could you provide me with the missing information between then and January 2012 that I originally requested as well.

Yours sincerely,

Good morning,

I have attached the response sent to you for the first FOI request you refer to - request 5090 - where you asked for information prior to April 2015. As you can see the response included the detail that trust is unable to provide information prior to April 2015 due to reporting systems having changed.

Many thanks

Good morning,

The trust supplied with the data up until August 2018, as per your request 5505, on 5th of October according to our records. If you would like data up to the present day i.e. including further months, could you please submit a further FOI request specifying the dates.

Many thanks
