Housing Revenue Account - Social Housing Stock
The Local Government transparency code 2015 requires that a Local Authority publishes social housing stock at postal code level (eg OL1 1**) except where the stock number in that post code is lower than 2,500. In these situations, in order to ensure that individual properties cannot be identified, councils are obliged to publish at a higher post code level (eg OL1)
The data is based on the valuations by Unity Partnership in 2014. The market values are in the opinion of the valuers the best sale price that could be obtained for the property at the time of valuation. The adjusted Existing Use Value – Social Housing (EUV-SV) represents the assumption that the properties have sitting tenants with potentially below market value rents and statutory rights such as right to buy.
The valuations are not an indication or suggestion that tenancies should be ended to realise the market value.

Public Contracts Legislation - Payments
Under the Public Contract Regulations 2015 (Regulation 113) Oldham Council is required to publish performance data at the end of each financial year starting with 2015/16.
The data demonstrates the Council’s performance on paying invoices within 30 days to first tier suppliers/ prime contractors over the previous 12 months.
The statistics include:
- Percentage of invoices paid within 30 days.
- The amount of interest paid to suppliers due to late payment.
Additionally, it is a requirement to publish the total amount of interest that the Council was liable to pay i.e. whether or not paid, whether statutory or otherwise, due to breach of the Regulations. This figure must be published annually in relation to the previous 12 month period at the end of March 2017.
In order to comply with the legislation, the table below shows the performance of Oldham Council.
|Financial Year||Proportion of invoices paid within 30 days in accordance with regulation 113*||The amount of interest paid to suppliers due to breach of the requirement in regulation 113||The amount of interest that the contracting authority was liable to pay i.e. Whether paid or not paid whether statutory or otherwise due to a breach of the Regulations|
*The Council currently do not have the means to be able to exclude periods where invoices are in dispute between receipt and payment so the above figures include this.

Basic estimate of spending on unions (calculated as the number of full time equivalent days spent on union duties by authority staff that spent the majority of their time on union duties multiplied by the average salary
Calculation based on which is FTE average salary. Actual spend is less due to monies contributed from non-council budgets to support the provision of trade union representation to non-council direct employees).
A basic estimate of spending on unions as a percentage of the total pay bill (calculated as the number of full time equivalent days spent on union duties by authority staff that spent the majority of their time on union duties multiplied by the average salary divided by the total pay bill)
- 0.09% (based on the calculation above).
This is reduced to 0.04% should the calculation include the contribution (as detailed at 4 above) from non- council budgets.
