As a publicly funded organisation we are committed to being as open and transparent as possible on how we spend taxpayers' money.
We publish details of those items of spend over £500 (excluding VAT) made to suppliers for goods and services. From 1 January 2015 we also publish details of all transactions made using a council procurement card.
Viewing council expenditure
Payments over £500 and procurement card payments made by the council are published on this page. The data includes payments to suppliers for goods and services, grant payments and payments to other public bodies. For data protection reasons some personal data is excluded from the information published.
The data is downloadable in both PDF format (easier to read) and in CSV format, which may be loaded into a spreadsheet or other software program for further analysis.
We publish data on a monthly basis. You are free to re-use the data under the terms of the Open Government Licence.
