Exceptions to cross-government moratoria on spend in DFID

This series brings together all documents relating to spending moratoria - DFID spending approvals report.

In May 2010, the Coalition Government put in place measures to constrain spending. There are currently 5 moratoria on spending:

  • a freeze on all new ICT spend above £1 million
  • a freeze on all new advertising and marketing spend
  • a freeze on all new consultancy spend
  • increased control over new property leases and lease extensions
  • a freeze on Civil Service recruitment.

In line with UK government commitments to increase transparency, we are now publishing details of all approvals granted under these 5 spending controls, we will publish this data on a quarterly basis.
