Transparency and spending data
In order to comply with the Local Government Transparency Code 2015 each council publishes their spending data over £500. Please note each council has opted to identify grants awarded to voluntary, community or social enterprise organisations within the monthly 'spending data' reports. Any relevant payments will be under the department of Member’s Ward Budget.
We must also publish details of every transaction on a Government Procurement Card.
Please note that some information has been redacted from the supplier information:
- individual supplier’s names have been redacted in accordance with section 40 (personal data) of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) - these are clearly marked on the spread sheet as “redacted personal data”
- names of temporary accommodation providers have been redacted in accordance with section 38 (health and safety) of the FOIA - these redactions are marked on the spread sheet as “redacted sensitive information”
Please be reminded that we have three months from the end of the month to publish the data on our website. For example May 2023's spending data, should be published by the 31 August 2023.
