Where can I see your payment card spending?

We attempt to publish all our payment card spending on a quarterly basis, eight weeks after each quarter end.

This is in addition to the information available under Where can I see your spending data?

Where can I find your public contracts 'performance of payments' data?

Contracting authorities are required to publish performance data starting with their performance over the 2015/16 financial year (published after March 2016) and then at the end of each financial year. The data demonstrates the Council's performance on paying in 30 days to first tier suppliers/prime contractors over the previous twelve months.

The statistics reflect:

  1. the percentage of invoices paid within 30 days
  2. the amount of interest paid to suppliers due to late payment

Additionally, it is a requirement to publish the total amount of interest that the Council is liable to pay, i.e. whether paid or not, whether statutory or otherwise, due to a breach of the regulations.
