As part of the Council's commitment to being open and transparent, from December 2010 we have been publishing on a monthly basis details of payments we make to suppliers where the value exceeded £500.00. From July 2012 we will be publishing payments exceeding £250.00.
The data that we publish is drawn from the Council's Financial Management system and has been prepared in CSV, Excel and PDF formats as follows:
The date upon which the payment was made.
The London Borough of Barking and Dagenham categorises it's suppliers into a number of categories such as General Suppliers, Residential Care Homes and K2 for companies undertaking work on our public buildings.
Further categorisation of our supplier database is currently being undertaken to ensure that payments currently deemed as being General, can be broken down further in the future.
The name of the supplier paid. For Data Protection reasons, the names of some suppliers have been replaced with the word 'Redacted'.
A unique internally generated number that identifies the payment.
The amount paid is inclusive of VAT.
All enquiries concerning the data should be sent to email@example.com
