TfL Ref: 2263-1920

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 28 October 2019 asking for information about our Transactions over £500 from July 2019.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can confirm that we hold the information you require

The information you asked for is published on our website using the following link: which currently includes data up to 20 July 2019 which meets our obligation to report up to a quarter in arrears.

The following period which covers up to 17 August 2019 should be completed and published in the next couple of weeks, and the following four week period after that will be published in line with the obligation referred to above.

Therefore in accordance with the FOI Act, TfL is not obliged to supply you with the contract you have requested as it is subject to a statutory exemption to the right of access to information, under Section 22 of the Act. In this instance the exemption has been applied as the information you have requested is intended for future publication.

This exemption is subject to a public interest test, which requires us to assess whether the public interest in applying the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosure. In this instance, it is considered that the public interest favours the publication of this information, in context and according to the pre-determined schedule, rather than in response to your request, to ensure the information is provided accurately and in an accessible manner.

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely

Sara Thomas
