Purchase card payments

Sunderland City Council publishes the details of every transaction from the council's procurement card scheme, showing who we paid, how much we paid, and what this was for.

This information is included in a report showing all purchase card transactions during the relevant period. The reports show a number of columns of data:

ColumnField nameExplanation
ALocal authorityName of council making the payment
BDirectorateThe directorate responsible for spending the money    
CTransaction dateThe date on which the transaction took place
DSupplierThe name of the beneficiary of the transaction
ETransaction numberThe unique number to identify the transaction within the council's purchase card system
FMerchant category/summaryThe merchant category and summary of the purpose of the expenditure
GTransaction valueValue of the procurement card transaction

The report may raise questions, if you want to know more about any of the transactions, please email: quoting the transaction number, the supplier and the amount you are querying. We aim to respond within fifteen working days.

Format of the data

We publish the data in two formats:

  • The PDF makes it easier for you to read or print the data.
  • The CSV format allows you to analyse and sort the data in the spreadsheet software package of your choice.
