Local transparency code for contracts

The Local Government Transparency Code 2015 requires local government to ensure data is available to increase democratic accountability and make it easier for local people to contribute towards local decision making. The availability of data can also open up new markets for local business, voluntary and community sectors and social enterprises to run services or manage public assets.
