This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust,

Thank you for publishing your spend data here: https://www.srft.nhs.uk/media-centre/pub... . However, I notice that you haven't published any spending data since April 2020.

We understand that due to the COVID-19 pandemic it may not have been a priority to publish your spending data. However, we strongly believe that the spending data is critical to understanding how Government functions and this data is vital for our work. We would be extremely grateful if you could update this information as soon as reasonably possible.

I'd like to make a request under the Freedom of Information act for all transactions over £25,000 from May 2020 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,

Anna Pongracz

redeployment due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  With the added pressures on
the NHS, the Trust is unlikely to have the capacity to obtain the
information you have requested. The Information Commissioners Office has
issued guidance [1]here.
 
As a result of this, we are requesting that you consider the need for this
information at this time.  Wherever possible, we would ask you to work
with us and withdraw the request and resubmit once the pandemic is over.
 
Where your request is required urgently we will endeavour to get the
