Government procurement card (GPC)

As part of the Local Government Transparency Code, our GPC transactions are published on a quarterly basis.

For each transaction, the following details must be published:

  • date of the transaction
  • council department that incurred the expenditure
  • beneficiary
  • summary of the purpose of the expenditure
  • amount
  • VAT that cannot be recovered
  • merchant category, for example computers, software etc.

We use procurement cards to obtain petty cash following the closure of our cash offices. The amounts relating to petty cash have been included in the analysis above for completeness. Please note: all amounts are gross of VAT unless stated otherwise.

If you'd like to see government procurement card data reports prior to April 2017, please contact us online.
