Procurement card spend

The procurement card spend document will set out all procurement card transactions on a quarterly basis.

The procurement card, is a purchasing card that is issued to selected senior and emergency planning team employees who can then acquire goods and services. This is used where suppliers require payment prior to providing the goods or services or where emergency items are required. This means that purchases can be made without having to process the transaction through the traditional purchasing procedure, such as using purchase requisitions or purchase orders. 

The information in this publication forms part of the Council's commitment to being open and transparent. This data is freely re-usable under the terms the Open Government License (OGL).
