Details

The government puts transparency and accountability at the heart of how it does business, and publishing data is key to this.

The Cabinet Office is continuing to ensure grant making across government is more efficient and effective.

The government has developed a new data platform, the Government Grants Information System (GGIS), to collect information about grant funding across the whole of government.

The GGIS enables information on grant schemes (programmes) and the associated awards to be captured and shared with other government departments in a simple, standardised and scalable way. The insight obtained from the GGIS enables grant managers to improve the effectiveness of their grant making and ensure greater scrutiny by identifying areas of potential inefficiency or fraud throughout the grant making process.

All departments have made significant progress in capturing data on the GGIS, which currently contains information on over £100bn of government grants schemes. This represents the most comprehensive picture of the government grants landscape. Government remains committed to providing more granular data on grant awards and the Cabinet Office is working with departments to deliver this.

The Minimum Standards for Government Grants were published in December 2016, supported by Cabinet Office guidance. The standards provide the framework for administration, underpinned by the guidance in Managing Public Money. Standard 2 requires departments enter details of their grants schemes and awards on the GGIS, a repository of government grants data.
