Transparency on what we spend

We are the independent regulator for equality, human rights and good relations in Britain - a statutory body (a body set up by law) set up under the Equality Act 2006 and funded by the Government Equalities Office.

Government departments are asked to publish their spending information, taking a consistent approach to timing, format and content. We follow guidance published on the Treasury website.

The government made a commitment to publish, online, transactions over £25,000. We have opted to publish our transactions over £500, which is below the government's minimum requirements.

What is, and is not, included in the reports?

  • transactions are recorded on the day they are actually paid and include non-refundable VAT
  • personal information, such as wages and salaries and pension contributions, falling under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is excluded
  • we publish information about salaries separately

Information is published by the 15th working day of each month.
