Payments to suppliers

We publish all items of expenditure over £500 on our website each month.

As one of the first councils to make this commitment, the  move represents another step by the council to become as transparent as  possible, following the recent announcements on senior officer salaries.

Councillor Theo Blackwell, Cabinet Member for Resources, said: “Residents have the right to know where their money goes.  By opening  up council accounts, people can see where money is being spent, and importantly, hold us to account by suggesting where we could make further savings."

The reports in this section list the total payments to suppliers with a net cumulative value of over £500. The reports are made available under the Open Government Licence

These will include:

  • all individual items we purchase
  • payments made to contractors carrying out work on our behalf
  • other spend incurred in carrying out our business
They will exclude:

  • payments made to staff
  • sensitive personal information, such as payments made to foster carers
  • any payments which may reveal personal details about an individual

We regularly review the way we classify expenditure to ensure the process is as accurate as possible.
