Dudley Council is committed to providing quality services to the residents and businesses of the borough, as part of our commitment to providing financial transparency, any spend on goods and services made with a Council Procurement Card are now listed online.
Procurement Cards are used by the Council as a payment card, not a credit card, and they are the preferred method of purchasing and paying for low value goods or services. It provides a cost-effective method of payment with benefits in terms of convenience, reduced administration and reduced procurement processing times.
Procurement Card payments are transferred into a suppliers account within one working day benefiting the supplier, in particular Small and Medium Enterprises (SME's).
The objective in using a Procurement Card is to reduce the administration involved in requisitioning, ordering and the processing of invoices. Using a Procurement Card to conduct the routine purchasing business of the authority can significantly reduce the number of orders and invoices processed and facilitate payments to suppliers, in turn saving the authority money and reducing the burden on the Public Purse.
The monthly reports are provided in an easy and accessible format in order to find information on Dudley Council's expenditure during the period September 2014 - March 2015.

If you require further information about any payments, please e-mail the Information Governance Team, setting out the details of the payment and what additional information you require.
If you would like to know more about the type of business conducted with these suppliers, please visit our Council Procurement Contacts page.
We will always try to be as transparent as we can but in some cases we will need to respect information that could be seen as commercially sensitive or where the payment relates to vulnerable young people or adults.
