Spending the council's money
Spending the council's money applies to all Kent schools that are not academies. When undertaking procurements schools must do so in compliance with the Scheme for Financing Schools and the individual school's finance policy.
It does not apply to contractors or suppliers, either individuals or firms, who spend money received from Kent County Council via a contract to support their own operations.
