Invoices over £500

The Council changed financial systems from Oracle to Agresso on 1st April 2014.

Invoices relating to financial year 2013/14, received in early April were processed via Oracle for accountancy then exported to Agresso for payment and those for the financial year 2014/15 were processed via Agresso for both accountancy and payments 

Whilst this was the best way to manage the process for the balancing of each years accounts it caused some difficulties when extracting the data for reporting the over £500 invoices. This has now been resolved and we apologise for the delay in publishing the data.

Those invoices processed in Oracle have a paid in period date of 201400 and those processed in Agresso have a paid in period date of 201401

Transparency in local government - local spending data

The following files provide information on any individual payments made to suppliers over £500 and is published as part of the Council's commitment to be open and transparent to its residents.

This data has been extracted from Agresso Enterprise Resource Planning System, which is an integrated financial database system.

This data is freely re-usable under the same terms as

Information has been published based on the instructions set out in the 'Local Spending Data Guidance' and the 'Local Transparency: a practitioners' guide to publishing local spending data'.

Public Contract Regulation Act 2015

Regulation 113 of the Public Contract Regulation Act 2015 requires all contracting authorities to pay undisputed invoices within 30 days. When undisputed invoices are not paid within this 30 day period, interest may be payable on the outstanding amount as set out in the Late Payment Legislation. The following table demonstrates the Council's performance against this requirement:

Financial Year Percentage of Valid Invoices Paid within 30 Days Amount of Interest actually paid to Suppliers due to breach of regulation 113
2017 - 2018 91% £0.00
2018 - 2019 91% £0.00
2019 - 2020 90% £0.00
2020 - 2021 83% £0.00
2021 - 2022  93% £0.00
2022 - 2023 92% £0.00
2023 - 2024 85% £0.00


Important note about the CSV files

We have saved the spreadsheets as CSV files so that they can be easily read in a variety of applications. However the CSV format uses a standard column width and not all entries may be completely visible. To view all the data, you will need to expand the columns. You can do this by selecting all the cells in the file (the grey box beside column A and above row 1), and then clicking on Format / Column / AutoFitSelection.

We aim to be as transparent as we can but in some cases we will need to respect information that could be seen as personally or commercially sensitive.​​​
