Payments to Suppliers over £500

At Birmingham we are committed to making our finances clear, so that everyone can see exactly how we are spending money. As part of our commitment to providing financial transparency, the City Council has instructed that regular reports should be published on all expenditure over £500 including VAT.

The attached monthly reports list the individual payments to suppliers each month with a value over £500. Please note these are payments made in the period, and do not necessarily relate to invoices dated or received in the period.

The monthly reports are published in portable document format (PDF), (and CSV) and are listed (by month). If you require older reports please contact Ian Martin on 0121 675 0406 or email Ian.martin@birmingham.gov.uk

In the interests of keeping the costs of publication to a minimum, the Council has published the data in a plain, simple format showing:

  • Payment beneficiary
  • Date of payment
  • Amount paid and
  • Unique document reference

If you require further information about any of the payments, please contact foi.mailbox@birmingham.gov.uk setting out the details of the payment and what additional information you require. Such request will be handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, and the Council aims to be able to provide a response to your query within 20 working days.

We aim to be as transparent as we can, but in some cases we will need to respect information that could be seen as commercially sensitive or where the payment relates to vulnerable young people or adults.

Some of this information is withheld as it is personal data. For further information about personal data, please see birmingham.gov.uk/foi
