Publication scheme

Each government department and agency has a publication scheme, which makes information available to the public about how it operates and how it spends its budget.

You don’t need to make a Freedom of Information (FOI) request for these.

The publication scheme specifies the categories of information the Government Internal Audit Agency and explains how to get that information.

Information for some categories will be added later as we grow from being a shadow agency to a full executive agency.
