Council spending

Central government requires that we publish payments made to suppliers for goods, services and grants over £500. We are committed to being open and transparent about how we spend your money so we go beyond these requirements. We publish details of all payments including:

  • all individual invoices
  • grant payments
  • payments to other public bodies
  • expense payments
  • credit notes
  • all expenditure made on purchasing cards (from October 2014)

The following are excluded:

  • payments made to staff
  • sensitive personal information, such as individual foster carer payments
  • any payments which may reveal details about an individual
  • internal charges between different parts of the Council

Publishing this information enables greater transparency, greater engagement and greater efficiency as residents and other interested parties and inspect the data online. See information on our freedom of information publication scheme.

Payments to suppliers

Data about the payments we have made to suppliers is provided as PDF and CSV files (on a monthly basis) and is freely re-usable under the terms of the open government licence via York Open Data:
