We believe in being open and transparent in all areas of our work. In line with the Local Government Transparency Code the following information is being provided and will be updated on a regular basis. General information about the Authority can be found in the publication scheme.

All the information included can be used and re-used under the terms of the Open Government Licence.


Details of our financial strategy, annual budgets and budget monitoring can be found in the regular reports to the Authority and, in particular, to the Resources, Audit and Performance Committee.

All expenditure items over £250 can be found below. Data is provided on a quarterly basis for the current plus previous two financial years and listed by month.

View details of all our recent grants to voluntary, community and social enterprises below; these were awarded under our grant application process.

During 2022/23 we paid 97% of undisputed invoices within 30 days; no late payment fees were paid during the year.

We do not have any employees whose singular role is to undertake investigations and prosecutions of fraud. However we take fraud very seriously and have strong governance arrangements in place to counter fraud of any kind; in this regard, any such investigations would be led by either the Monitoring Officer or our Internal Audit team (the latter being provided through New Forest District Council). There were no such cases in 2022/23.


All current opportunities to provide goods/services to us are published, with details of opportunities to quote (£10-£25,000) and all formal tenders.

View details of all our existing contracts, framework agreements and purchase orders below; each list includes all items over £5,000.
