Request detail: 

Please may you provide me, in Microsoft Excel or an equivalent electronic format, with a list of invoices that were not paid within 30 days for the last 6 financial years (2017/18 to 2022/23 inclusive) which would feed into the Regulation 113 Notice you are required to publish each year as part of your obligations under The Public Contracts Regulations 2015, with the following information for each invoice (where available):

The name of the Supplier
Supplier email address
Supplier company registration number
Supplier postal address
Supplier telephone number
Supplier website
The date of the invoice
The invoice reference
The gross value of the Invoice
The date the invoice should have been paid by
The actual payment date of the invoice
The total amount of interest liability due to late payment of the invoice
The total amount of interest paid to the supplier due to late payment of the invoice.

For the avoidance of doubt we request the data behind payment performance summaries for Regulation 113 Notices, not the summaries themselves.

We expect that this information to be readily available and easily accessible in the electronic format requested given the necessity of source data which must have been required to prepare and produce the Regulation 113 Notice.

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, or for another reason, please provide advice and assistance, under the Section 16 obligations of the Act, as to how I can refine my request.

Response detail: 

Thank you for your email. Our finance department have reviewed your queries and clarifications and, as a result, have provided the attached report that shows invoices not paid within 30 days from 01/04/18 to 31/03/23.  Please note that for two entries the company name has been withheld under section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, as disclosure would breach the first principle of the Data Protection Act 2018.  Section 40 is an absolute exemption and is therefore not subject to the public interest test.
