HM Treasury requires that all central government departments publish details of their spending for transactions over £25,000, and publish monthly data by the last day of each month. This department has lowered its threshold and publishes its transactions over £250.
Available below are the spending report and the Government Procurement Card spending report for August 2012.
Points to note on this report:
- over £250 transparency spending data is taken from SAP’s general ledger payment transactions
- as required by HM Treasury, the data relates to accounts payable payments and credit note transactions for grants and procurement expenditure, recorded at the time the transaction was processed on SAP
- the data excludes any subsequent journal transactions and accounts receivable receipts
- travel, subsistence and other employee transactions are currently published on a summarised anonomised basis - they are summarised by ‘expense area’, then ‘expense type’, by day.
- the terms ‘localism’ and ‘neighbourhoods’ in the spreadsheets refer to groups within DCLG - they cover policy areas such as housing, planning and local government
- the data is published in CSV and Excel formats in payment date sequence
