We have published our contract register, which lists the council’s contracts, purchase orders and grants (including grants to the voluntary sector).
This data does not include details of invitation to tender for contracts as these are published individually in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) and/or on Contracts Finder as and when they are advertised.
The data is taken from the procurement department’s records.

|36||Tender document URL||We hope to publish a link to the contract notice in the future|
|4||Contract reference number||For purchase orders over £5000 with no associated contract, this refers to the purchase order number and is identifiable as it is in a different format from contract reference numbers referring to contracts|
|17||Contract start date||This is not available for all contracts, but will be populated for all new contracts. It does not apply for purchase orders|
|18 and 20||End date and last extension date||Contracts without fixed end dates have provision to terminate with a defined amount of notice. It does not apply for purchase orders|
|21||Contract value||Most contracts are not for a set amount: charges depend on usage. Actual spend contract-by-contract is included in the £500 spend data published separately|
|29||SME supplier||At this stage the flag only identifies suppliers which are small enterprise according to their account classification. We will improve this data as soon as possible|
|30||VCSE supplier||This data is taken from the Buy Social directory with a few manual corrections for obvious errors|
|32-34||Nominated contact point||This is not applicable for POs|
|35-37||Tender process type, tender document URL, contract document URL||This is not applicable for POs|
