Cabinet Office partners

The Cabinet Office works with a number of independent bodies, agencies and non departmental public bodies. A NDPB is defined as a “body which has a role in the processes of national Government, but is not a Government Department or part of one, and which accordingly operates to a greater or lesser extent at arm’s length from Ministers”.

We currently work with two types of NDPB:

  • Executive NDPBs - typically established in statute and carrying out executive, administrative, regulatory and/or commercial functions.
  • Advisory NDPBs - provide independent, expert advice to Ministers on a wide range of issues.
