Big plans, bright future

Local Transparency

good governance

The Council routinely publishes information as part of our usual business activities. This supports the requirements of a publication scheme as set out in the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the requirements of the Local Government Transparency Code 2015, both of which encourage the proactive publication of information and the development of a culture of openness and transparency, making information accessible, easy to find and use.

A large amount of information is already available on this website, hyperlinks to the relevant pages have been provided below.

If you would like further information which is not listed below, you can request this via a Freedom of Information request.

 

Expenditure exceeding £500

Expenditure above £500 is published on a monthly basis, once data has been analysed and coded.

Expenditure on Purchase Cards or Corporate Credit Cards is published for all values of spend on a monthly basis, once data has been analysed and coded.

This information can be found in the Council's Payments to suppliers page.

 

Procurement information

Contract Register

An up to date list is available of all current contracts either awarded by or participated in by Stockton-on Tees Borough Council which is published via the North East Procurement Organisation (NEPO) procurement portal.

The contract register includes details of all contracts, commissioned activity and framework agreements.

This register is updated as new contracts are awarded and will therefore always include the latest information, rather than publishing a static register.

All current ITTs are published via the North East Procurement Organisation (NEPO) via the Opportunities Portal

  • click on “Search Latest Opportunities”
  • select “Stockton Borough Council” from the Organisation dropdown box
