Payments to suppliers

This page displays links to files detailing invoices paid to suppliers totalling £500 or more including VAT.

Each file shows one month's transactions and is provided in both CSV format, so it can be easily manipulated, and as a PDF.

If you would like to know more about an individual transaction please email us at quoting the relevant transaction number.

We will make every effort to respond quickly, although more complex enquiries may be treated as Freedom of Information requests and be subject to the specified timescales.

Provision of personal data to the Cabinet Office

We are required by law to protect the public funds that we administer. To do this we sometimes need to share the personal data you have given us with the bodies responsible for auditing or administering those funds, in order to prevent and detect fraud.

The Cabinet Office requires us to participate in the National Fraud Initiative (NFI), a data-matching exercise to assist in the prevention and detection of fraud against ourselves and other public-sector organisations. We regularly provide particular sets of data to the Cabinet Office for this purpose, as set out in the code of practice. The next data-matching exercise will be conducted in October 2016.
