View our data

As part of our drive for openness and transparency, the Council has developed this area which brings together new and existing information to enable members of the public and other interested parties to research answers to their questions.

The Government's Local Government Transparency Code 2014, published in October 2014, requires Local Authorities to provide greater disclosure of their activities online, and these requirements are also addressed in this area.

Examples of the information that you can find in this area are:

  • Expenditure (including Credit Card transactions) on goods and services
  • Other Procurement Information, such as Invitations to tender, Contracts let and Purchase Orders placed over 5,000, and details of our current Waste Collection contract
  • Staffing information, including pay levels of Senior Staff, an Organisation Chart, Woking's Pay Multiple and time spent on Union Activities

In order to make this information easier to view, analyse and download, we've used a product called DataShare to bring it all together. If you have any suggestions, comments, or questions on this information, please e-mail us or complete our contact form.
