The Council does not record a central list of contracts with a value less

·         a description of the goods/services being provided (other than
was in the contract title);

·         VAT that cannot be recovered

·         Whether the contract was the result of an invitation to quote or
published invitation to tender; it is the policy of the Council to seek a
minimum of 3 written quotations between £10k to £99,999 and formal tenders
from £100k. The Council uses procurement portals for these;
[1]www.myTenders.co.uk before February 2018 and
[2]www.in-tendhost.co.uk/westberks from February 2018.

·         Whether the supplier is a SME or VCO.

 

The Council also publishes spend over £500 on its website which may be of
interest to you, this can be viewed here;
