Information about public data published by the Home Office as part of the transparency initiative.
The transparency agenda
The transparency agenda is at the heart of the government’s commitment to:
- enable the public to hold politicians and public bodies to account
- reduce the deficit and deliver better value for money in public spending
- realise significant economic benefits by enabling businesses and non-profit organisations to build innovative applications and websites using public data
The Home Office is committed to opening up its data to support this move to greater openness. The department’s business plan includes a specific section on transparency which outlines the input and impact indicators to help you to measure our performance.
Home Office, agencies and NDPB's structure and salary information information is released every six months.
