With local authorities facing unprecedented pressures due to COVID-19, it is more important than ever to understand how third party spend has been impacted as a result of the pandemic. Councils continue to face tough spending decisions in the face of significant increases in demand for local public services, and unprecedented pressures due to the COVID-19 pandemic and associated recovery.
Oxygen Finance and EY explore how local authorities in England spent their resources with third parties over the last three years in this second annual spend Almanac. The report looks at the spending behaviours of Councils, analysing spend from category, regional and council type perspectives.
