Details

The main report of Public Bodies 2014 sets out an annual update of:

  • progress in rationalising the public bodies landscape
  • savings made through this progress
  • the legacy provided by the work on sponsorship and triennial review programme, which will enable reform to continue after the public bodies reform programme is completed

Public Bodies 2014 provides a single transparent source of top-level data on all non-departmental public bodies, executive agencies and non-ministerial departments. The term ‘quango’ is sometimes used informally to describe bodies such as these. The data directory, Annex A, shows a snapshot of public bodies as of 31 March 2014 unless otherwise stated.

This information is published to make the public bodies more transparent, which in turn helps taxpayers hold decision-makers to account. Public Bodies 2014 is an online publication and the data will be updated quarterly, where applicable, for improved transparency.

Data updates

We publish quarterly updates to the original Public Bodies 2014 data set, to keep the information current and relevant. The updates show the position as at 30 June 2014, 30 September 2014, 31 December 2014, 31 March 2015 and 30 June 2015.
