Barrow Borough Council believes, as a public funded organisation, greater transparency is key for the delivery of its Council services and as a duty to the residents it serves.
Payment to Suppliers - From January 2011, monthly data will be published including the details required in the guidance issued by the DCLG. Up to the 31st December 2010, the report included all suppliers where the total net payments made were greater than £500. This data is produced by reporting on the Payables module of the Oracle Financials system. The Council does not use Government Procurement cards.
All payments to suppliers over £500 are now published on the Council's Data Portal https://data.gov.uk/publisher/barrow-borough-council in both csv and pdf format.
From February 2020, all payments to suppliers over £500 ceased being published on the Council's Data Portal. Please see information below in both csv and pdf format.

From 2017, any organisation that has 250 or more employees must publish and report specific figures about their gender pay gap. The gender pay gap is the difference between the average earnings of men and women, expressed relative to men's earnings. This is distinct from equal pay where men and women in the same job/role perform equal work and receive equal pay. The 2019 Gender Pay Gap Report can be accessed here:
