NB

The transactions that state “Head Teacher” or “LMS Transfer” in the
supplier column will be when schools have paid for travel costs from
either their petty cash account or cheque book account and the council has
reimbursed the school, therefore the Council will not hold supplier
details in our purchase ledger system.

 

Most of the information that we provide in response to Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and Environmental Information Regulations 2004
requests will be subject to copyright protection.  In most cases the

 However, any other type of re-use, for example by publishing the
information in analogue or digital form, including on the internet, will
require the permission of the copyright owner.

 

I hope that the information provided is useful to you. However, if you are
dissatisfied, you should set out in writing your grounds for complaint and
send to: Information Risk & Governance Manager, Business Change, Civic
Centre, Darwall Street, Walsall,  WS1 1TP.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of your complaint, you may apply
directly to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) for a decision.
Please remember that, generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless you
have first exhausted the complaints procedure provided by the council. The
Information Commissioner can be contacted at: The Information
Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9
