Contracts register

The Contract Register is a record of the contracts we hold with a value of £5,000 or more, in line with the council's Contract Procedure Rules.

The Contract Register is updated on a bi-monthly in arrears basis to reflect live contracts and includes information on their total values, what they are for and who the supplier is.

In line with the Local Government Transparency Code 2015 key details for Council Contracts above £5,000 will be provided.

Please note, some framework contracts have expired dates however, due to ongoing delivery of services under the framework, meaning these will remain on the published contract register until the services have ceased.

This will depend on the value of the contract and any other circumstances.
