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 successful.

Dear Sir or Madam,

Thank you for publishing your spend data here:https://www.nth.nhs.uk/spend-value-25000/ . However, I notice that you haven't published any spending data since February 2019.

I'd like to make a request under the Freedom of Information act for all transactions over £25,000 from March 2019 to 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:
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 North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust,

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

Dear Sir or Madam,

On 16 July 2019, I sent you a FOI request for your expenditure over £25,000 from March 2019 to present.

On 18 July 2019, you refused my request, saying that the information will be published in the future.

However, 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.

Please also take note of this decision notice from the ICO on the use of Section 22 of the FOI Act in these circumstances: https://ico.org.uk/media/action-weve-tak...

I await your response within 20 working days.

Yours Faithfully,
