Why does Birmingham City Council keep its current procurement opportunities list behind a sign-up wall? It seems that Brummies can see lists of Awarded Contracts and notices of Forthcoming Contracts. But live and currently-offered contracts are available only via the membership group Findit, and the public are blocked from them by a password box. Should this public data about spending public money not be openly available to the public, without any registration? Since it also serves as a handy guide for citizens on what the Council is planning on doing in the near future.
