Expense policies

Cooperation Birmingham Expense Polic
Cooperation Birmingham is using Open Collective to administer financial transactions. Co-op funds are held by The Social Change Nest, who manage our account in a transparent, reliable and accountable way. Funds are anticipated from private donations, members’ subs and contributions from other organisations.

Co-op organisers are responsible for authorising expenses, raised by submitting an invoice or a receipt. All transactions are noted in the co-op budget and on the Open Collective platform.

Funds will be used for the following purposes:
-Purchasing ingredients for hot meals for people isolating due to Covid 19
-Purchasing supplies and equipment for food distribution and storage
-Paying for the transport costs of food distribution
-Paying for Co-operation Birmingham’s other activities including the Media Co-op

Payments will be made weekly on Thursdays, once they have been approved by a Co-op Organiser, and made directly to a bank account to avoid incurring transaction fees

Expenses must include a valid receipt or invoice, clearly showing the total amount spent, date, and details of the expense.
