Unfortunately, as a consequence of the current coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and resources being allocated to other activities, there may be a delay in updating the information on this page. Whilst we will still try to meet our current publishing guide times this may not always be possible and we would appreciate your patience during this period.
As part of our commitment to providing financial transparency, any spend on goods and services over £500 with external suppliers are now listed online.
We are supported by a vast range of works and services from external suppliers and providers. Our objective is to obtain best value for the procurement of supplies and services for the Council. We aim to operate fair and open competition by following transparent and auditable procedures in all tendering and contracting activity.
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. Some of this information is withheld as it is personal data. For further information about personal data please visit the Privacy & Disclaimer Statement page.
What we publish
We publish lists of individual payments (with a value over £500) to suppliers each month.
There will be occasions where we will be unable to give you details of all expenses over £500. Examples of this would include foster carers, people receiving social care payments, refunds and employees expenses. On these occasions, where we are able to provide you with the majority of the report information but cannot give you the suppliers details, the supplier name will read REDACTED PERSONAL DATA
Certain transactions may be redacted or be exempt from publication because the transaction contains personal information that falls under Data Protection Law 2018. These payments have been redacted and the entry is listed as REDACTED PERSONAL DATA.
This information has been excluded or redacted from publication where:
- the information is personal and identifies an individual
- or where publication of the data can harm an individual. e.g. information related to the disclosure of the location of a vulnerable child or adult.
