Government Procurement Cards (GPCs) provide the Parish Council with a useful tool to purchase high volume; low value transactions. There are no card fees, transaction fees or interest to be payable by the Parish Council.
The GPC scheme meets the government prompt payment pledge as well as reducing paper waste, the card replaces outdated manual systems with more a streamlined electronic process which can be scruitinised. Our GPC scheme removes the need for any 'Petty Cash' Imprest so EVERY transaction has a record, even if a receipt is mislaid. All transactions are audited and bought to the attention of the Finance & Staffing Committee every month.
We know this form of payment has had a bad press Nationally. Central Swindon North Parish Council will strictly monitor and control all spend through monthly checks and external scrutiny. Legally the Council are required to publish all transactions greater than £500.00 but for greater transparency to our residents we include ALL GPC transactions, broken down monthly. If you would like any information on any item of expenditure or to review our annual budget please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
