Here at Newent Town Council, we believe it is essential that as a council we provide value for money. This means ensuring that public money is spent efficiently to provide an effective service. Our aim therefore is to get more council activity for the least possible expense without compromising quality. 
The Council’s Financial Regulations and a number of statutes and procedures provide the Council with the tools it needs to achieve its goals, protect community assets and make best use of public money. Newent Town Council recognises the importance of using its resources in an efficient way and one that is shown to give Value for Money.

The funding source is from Gloucestershire County Council and administered by Newent Town Council. 
 
Newent Town Council and Gloucestershire County Council are not obligated to accept bids that are considered non-compliant and can also offer organisations at the sole judgement of the aforementioned bodies a lower figure than requested. 
 
The bids should clearly indicate how the monies, if granted, are to be utilised and a timescale to provide said service, which must be before March 2022. 
All payments made by the Town Council (including those below £500) are reported in the Full Council meeting minutes. In addition, the Town Council publishes summary reports on all expenditure over £500 net of VAT. The reports available on the links below, show the individual payments to suppliers each month with a value over £500. Please note these are payments made in the period, and do not necessarily relate to invoices dated or received in the period. 
If you require further information about any of the payments, please contact the Town Council office setting out the details of the payment and the additional information you require. Your request will be dealt with under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and we aim to respond within 20 working days. 
 
The Town Council aim to be as transparent as possible, but in some cases we will need to respect information that could be seen as commercially sensitive. Some information is withheld, for example individual salaries, as it is personal data.
