Major IT issue

We are working to resolve IT problems that mean people completing benefit online forms may not be able to complete or submit them.

The problems also mean that our staff and contact service are not able to access all their computer systems.

You can still carry out most transactions on our website. If you need to contact us by phone and your call is urgent we will try to help you. If your call is not urgent please contact us next week.

Apologies for the inconvenience while we resolve this problem.

Payments to suppliers

The reports below list payments made to suppliers with a value of £500 or over (inclusive of VAT). The reports will be prepared and published on a monthly basis** and we will try to publish spend no later than the 25th of each month. Publication of these lists forms part of the Council's commitment to be open and transparent with its residents.

All spend data has been reviewed internally prior to publication. For example, payments to certain individuals and suppliers cannot be disclosed as they are covered by Data Protection Act requirements. Where this is the case the individual or supplier name has been replaced with the word 'Redacted Personal Data' or 'Redacted Commercial Data'.

Expense types are used to describe the type of spend and their description is available as part of this data set. The report also includes credit notes but employee and pensions information are not included as part of the data set.

The information is contained within a CSV file so it can be easily read by a variety of applications and is downloadable. There are search and filter options to enable you to easily access the data you require.

This data is freely re-usable under the Open Government Licence.
