Guidance on Department for Communities and Local Government and Government Offices spending data 2010-11
HM Treasury requires that all central government departments should publish details of their April - September 2010 spending for transactions over £25,000 by the end of October 2010, and thereafter publish monthly data by the last working day of each month. This Department has lowered its threshold and publishes its transactions over £500.
The Department for Communities and Local Government has published, on 28 February 2011, its spending over £500 data for January and for Government Procurement Card expenditure since May 2010.
The Department’s arm’s length bodies will each be responsible for publishing their own spending data, both on their own websites and on Data.gov.uk.
Points to note on this report:
- Currently listed below is the spending report for Government Procurement Cards. The Department for Communities and Local Government is the first Whitehall department to publish online details of corporate credit card expenditure.
- Spend data for Government Procurement Cards covers the period 12 May 2010 to 31 January 2011.
- Government Procurement Cards are available to all UK public sector organisations, including central government, local government and the NHS.
- Government Procurement Cards are issued to employees with responsibility for buying goods and services. These employees are made accountable for their activities, supported by management information that provides details of every transaction.
This data will continue to be published, on a month by month basis beginning with February data (published in March), along with the department’s monthly spend data.
