Our response

Response

The Council publishes details of all transactions over £500 on:

https://www.eden.gov.uk/your-council/council-business/council-finances/council-spending-over-500/

This provides details of suppliers, the expenditure type, a description of the expenditure and the council service it relates to. No definition of consultancy has been supplied in the foi but the relevant expense type is probably ‘professional fees’.
