We are taking part in a Scottish Government initiative to publish information on spending over £1,000.
We already provide the Scottish Procurement Information Hub with information on what we spend and this is enhanced by company information from commercial databases.
The information from the most recent financial year is now available and can be found on the Spotlight on Spend website.
Full details of all payments to suppliers and contractors exceeding £1,000 per annum are fully detailed and this information on our spending will give you a much better idea of where, and how, your money is spent. The entries marked as 'redacted' are those where the name of the supplier is an individual person. The name but not the amount is concealed to comply with Data Protection legislation.
The information on expenditure is categorised on the website by commodity or service provided. This information comes from the supplier databases, such as the Thomson’s Local Directory. It relates to the stated business and classification of the company, which may not necessarily fully relate to the purpose of East Ayrshire Council incurring the spend.
Information on all contracts let by the Council is being added to the Scottish Procurement Information Hub and this will be published next to the expenditure information.
