Transparency

Gov­ern­ment has set out the need for greater trans­parency across its oper­a­tions to enable the pub­lic to hold pub­lic bod­ies and politi­cians to account. This includes com­mit­ments relat­ing to pub­lic expen­di­ture, intended to help achieve bet­ter value for money.

The DfT Trans­parency Web­page pub­lishes details for the whole of the Depart­ment which includes the DfT Busi­ness Plan, Organ­i­sa­tion Charts, Head­quar­ter build­ings energy con­sump­tion, Min­is­te­r­ial gifts and the Depart­ments Infor­ma­tion Asset Register.

High­ways Agency pub­lic expen­di­ture infor­ma­tion is included in the following:
