The financial data provided below is made public under the Open Data initiative. Please read and agree to the Open Government Licence before making use of the data.
Please note that where a dataset has been updated, or revised to correct administrative error, a second version is published and the original will remain available.
Supplier names and postcodes that are considered personal and/or sensitive data are removed, and replaced with the text ‘REDACTED PERSONAL DATA’. This data relates to individuals who provide services such as foster care, adoption, individual placements for vulnerable adults or children, and where it is felt that publishing this data could jeopardise the service and/or individuals involved. The payment data is therefore supplied in this anonymised format to provide a full picture of the payments made in the period.
In line with government guidelines, payments are excluded from the dataset where they are not for the supply of a service, product or grant paid for by the council.
Examples of excluded payments are: adults receiving direct payments, carers of both children and adults, housing benefits, council tax refunds, non-domestic rates refunds, refunds for services delivered by the council, deductions made from salaries, pensions payments, schools payments, parish precept, VAT.
Corporate credit card spending
The names of Senior Officers (Service Director level and above) are shown within the data, but officers below this level have had their names redacted. Each cardholder has been assigned a reference to allow individual cardholder's spending to be tracked over time where their name has been redacted.
The published data includes all live cards.
Salaries and expenses
Expenses are incurred in the preceding month and paid in the stated month.
