The Government has published the most comprehensive organisational charts of the UK Civil Service ever released online.

The Government has published the most comprehensive organisational charts of the UK Civil Service ever released online, taking another step towards its goal of being the most transparent government in the world and opening up the structure of the Civil Service to public scrutiny.

Minster for the Cabinet Office Francis Maude said the new charts will make it easier for the public to “view and compare the structure of government bodies”.

For the first time, all central government departments and their agencies will present their charts together in the same format.

First published in October, Civil Service charts known as ‘organograms’ include the names, job titles and salaries of all civil service directors and more senior civil servants.

The new charts published today also include details of the numbers, grades, pay ranges and professions of staff within each team.

The charts are also available on the Government’s new-look data.gov.uk website. They form part of a series of improvements aimed at increasing the usability of public data published on data.gov.uk. The site now features a postcode search for the most important data on crime, health and other public services so people can see the data about their local area. There are also clear tools to explore cross-government data on spending, contracts, ministerial meetings and more.

The new organograms and revised data.gov.uk come a year after the Prime Minister committed to regularly publishing Government-held data, including organograms published by individual departments and agencies, central government spending over £25,000, government contracts and tenders worth over £10,000 and crime maps showing street-level crime.
