Transparency relating to councils
The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) issued a revised transparency, which specifies what open data local authorities must publish.
The code requires that councils provide details of:
- invitations to tender to provide goods and/or services with a value exceeding £5,000
- contracts, commissioned activity, purchase orders, framework agreements and any other legally enforceable agreement with a value that exceeds £5,000
- grants to voluntary, community or social enterprise organisations
- waste contracts
