We publish details of our external spending to individual payments to suppliers and organisations with a value over £250.
Please note that we categorise our spend using the Proclass system. This means that each supplier has a defined category which they are assigned but this does not necessarily mean this is what we are buying.
The external spend information is taken from our accounting system and includes the following information:
Originating business unit (e.g. our service authorising payment)
We have been very careful to not expose personal information e.g. individual payments for adoption, fostering and childcare, payments to individuals for care packages, next of kin payments, care related payments, refunds and compensation payments.
This type of data is not normally public and has been removed from the data in compliance with Data Protection law.
