2. As Welcome to Yorkshire is it seems a private company, yet in receipt of tens of millions of taxpayers investment, without public sector ownership, the authority has to procure within EU, UK public sector procurement rules and your own authority requirements. Accordingly, please provide within this request in (1) for each financial year since 2014/5 -2018/9 (to date) an annotation of where the spend decision was made, if a tender or other process was undertaken and specific committee/Exec Member or Officer recorded decision & report. If no decision record please advise.
