The top 100 suppliers by value to the department during the 2010-11 financial year, as well as the total amount spent with all suppliers so far during this financial year.

Disclosure

The attached table shows the top 100 suppliers by value in 2010 -11 with “value” defined as payments made. This data set has been compiled by analysing all cash payments (excluding non recoverable VAT) for the 2010-11 financial year. The figures are on a cash rather than accruals basis.

The information differs from a release of similar information for 2009/10 in that the table provides information on the payments to third-party suppliers but does not include details of payments to other government bodies.  Payments to other government departments may not be for supply of goods and services and so it would not be meaningful to categorise them as suppliers. 

As this approach differs from our previous top 100 disclosure we have provided details of some of the larger payments to those included in our earlier list in the footnote to the table.

This data covers core HM Treasury only and does not include any direct spend for the Treasury Group’s Executive Agencies or Arms-Length Bodies.  However, it does include indirect spend if costs were incurred by HM Treasury in relation to the provision of a shared service across HM Treasury Group.

We have withheld the names of companies that have provided a single secondee to work at HM Treasury as to publish the name risks identifying the individuals concerned and potentially details of their remuneration. This information constitutes personal data and engages the exemption under section 40(2) FOIA, by virtue of section 40(3)(a)(i), which is an absolute exemption.

The total spend with the top 100 suppliers in financial year 2010/2011 was £67,176,940 (excl non recoverable VAT) from a total spend with all suppliers of £75, 935,092 (excl non recoverable VAT). On the same basis, the total expenditure with all suppliers between April 2011 to December 2011 was £54, 047, 543 (excl non recoverable VAT).
