Transparency and open data

The Freedom of Information Act 200 requires every public authority to adopt and maintain a publication scheme and to publish information in accordance with the scheme. This page shows links to key information about what we spend and how we work. Some of the information is published as 'open data': in machine readable formats that can be easily reused. 
Open data is about increasing transparency and sharing the information we hold with the wider community and encouraging its use for the broader good.
