Hello Samuel. All Local Authorities have to provide a publication scheme. The scheme is meant to specify what information the Council publishes and how to gain access to it. The scheme includes "What we spend and how we spend it - . Financial information relating to projected and actual income and expenditure, tendering, procurement and contracts" It is unlawful to fail to make information available from the sources shown on the publication scheme. Where that happens, the ICO can be asked to intervene. Have a look at your Councils scheme, see what it says for ""What we spend and how we spend it" and let us know! And we can go from there.
