Payments to suppliers
Each month a list of payments worth £250+ to suppliers is published (exclusive of VAT).
Publication of these reports form part of the Council's commitment to be open and transparent with its residents.
Suppliers can be:
- limited companies
- other local authorities
- government departments
- community organisations
- small businesses
The only payments included are the ones the Council has made to purchase goods and services. Some spend is split between Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Council. This is shown in the reports.
This information was previously available to the public on request. All Councils are now encouraged to publish whatever supplier payment information they can, at minimum cost.
All spend (exclusive of VAT) using the Government Procurement Cards that are held by officers within the Council is also published.
The below files are in CSV format.
