Shepway reporting of Supplier payments: Now Live

November 16, 2010 9:35 AM

It's good to see that Shepway have now started monthly reporting of payments made by the Council to external bodies and suppliers that are £500 and over at http://tinyurl.com/2e2er3f

The Liberal Democrats on Shepway District Council called for the reporting of supplier payments of over £1,000 in a motion to Full Council on 28th April. Shepway Lib Dem Councillor Tim Prater commented:

"It's good to see that the Council are now reporting payments, just before the Government forced them to do so.

"Reporting should enhance the transparency of what the Council does, and done correctly, should actually save costs on dealing with 'Freedom of Information' requests. All Council's should work on the principle of sharing as much information about how they work as possible. It's taxpayers money - they should be able to see how it's spent."
