Every local authority maintains a corporate register of contracts intended to provide schedules of contracts for keeping track of an agency’s contracts and financial commitments with its suppliers; and contract statuses which can be used by public organisations to provide transparency.
The Expenditure sheets are useful for suppliers to see which Local Authority is buying from your competitors and the value of the purchases.
Expenditure over £250 provides information of payments made by the Council to its suppliers in excess of £250 to increase openness and transparency.
