Expenditure over £500

Cumbria Constabulary and the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) are committed to transparency in all our dealings, including how and where tax payers’ money is spent. We believe that publication of this information will also improve value for money in the long term by allowing residents to challenge the Constabulary and the Authority on how it spends money.

The procurement of all goods and services are governed by our procurement policy, procedures and contract standing orders. Collectively these documents provide the rules that must be followed by our staff for any purchasing.  They ensure that there is freedom of opportunity to trade with us as an organisation and that we are open and transparent in the way we do business. Our procurement policy and procedures support procurement activity which is compliant with relevant legislation, cost effective and delivers best value. This helps to ensure we achieve value for money – the right balance between quality, performance and price – when we buy goods and services. In doing so we ensure we make the best use of scarce public resources.

Detailed below is expenditure over £500.

This includes costs, supplier and transaction information and is published monthly. Any sole trader or body acting in a business capacity in receipt of payments of at least £500 of public money should expect such payments to be transparent. These data sets also include grants to the voluntary community and social enterprise sector where they are over £500.

Information has only been excluded from publication where:

  • disclosure of information would breach the Data Protection Act 1998
  • the information relates to the protection of vulnerable adults or children
  • the information is confidential or would attract an exemption under the Freedom of Information Act e.g. where disclosure could be prejudicial to the commercial interests of any person including the authority
