Council expenditure pre April 2012

As part of the Transparency Agenda, South Tyneside Council is committed to publishing its spending on goods and services over £500.

Our spending is detailed in monthly reports from April 2010.

Some items of expenditure are excluded from the reports, including:

  • Payments of less than £500
  • Banking/pension investments
  • Salary payments
  • Pension contributions
  • Severance payments
  • Settlements where confidentiality clauses exist
  • Information that would prejudice our commercial interests. This information has been replaced with the phrase "redacted commercial information"
  • Promises to pay but not yet realised
  • Transactions relating to the underwriting of debt
  • Payments relating to benefits, homelessness and fostering, for example carer benefit payments
  • Payments that relate to children or vulnerable people
  • Information that relates to personal individuals, this has been replaced by the phrase "redacted personal data"

This is not an exhaustive list. The council is expected to follow the key principles of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) and the Data Protection Act 1998 when considering spending disclosures.

Data format

The format of the reports has been published in accordance with the Local Spending Data Guidance.

The report is published in two formats:

  • PDF (which is easy to read)
  • CSV (which provides greater flexibility and allows the data to be downloaded and analysed into applications such as Microsoft Excel)
