The Coalition Government has committed to making clear to the public how it uses taxpayers’ money. All Government departments have been asked to publish a wide range of information about how it meets and measures its objectives and the use of resources.
The FCO already publishes some data on its people, buildings and money, including in our annual public accounts and in response to Freedom of Information (FOI) requests.
The FCO supports greater transparency of public information, as this can help explain our priorities to a wider audience, and how we achieve them. At the same time we need to make sure that we protect our security.
Below you'll find Foreign Office information. Our published data is also available on data.gov.uk, which aims to store national and local data for free re-use. You can also get information on the Government's transparency agenda on the Cabinet Office website.
