Transparency reports - Spend over £500

BTP Transparency

As per HM Treasury/Cabinet Office guidelines, BTP is required to publish details of all spending over £25,000 (except Government Procurement Card purchases where the threshold is £500) with suppliers and contractors, on a monthly basis. Data published is in the format set out by the DfT and consists of:

• Departmental Family – the parent department (in this case, the DfT)
• Entity – the entity to which the transaction relates (in this case, always BTP)
• Date Paid – as recorded in the financial system
• Expense Type – nature of expenditure made
• Expense Area – area/department of the organisation where the expenditure occurred
• Supplier Name – name of recipient as recorded in the financial system
• Transaction Reference – as generated by the system
• Amount – invoice amount including irrecoverable VAT
• Expense Description – narrative for the transaction, as per Expense Type
• Postcode – of supplier

The publication includes all spend which, in compliance with HM Treasury/Cabinet Office guidance, does not compromise the security of individuals, the organisation or legal obligations under the Data Protection Act.

Transactions are published as they originally appear in the financial system and do not include subsequent journals. Income is excluded.
