8,900+ records

The main Departments of Government such as the Department of Health & Social Care, Department for Education, Treasury, Home Office and the Cabinet Office, their respective sponsored Executive Agencies (such as the Environment Agency and Companies House), other Public Offices and a wide range of other national Non-Departmental Public Bodies (NDPBs), also commonly known as QUANGOs. The devolved Governments (Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) are also included and split into their respective Departments. Organisations concerned with Law and Criminal Justice are listed as separate organisations types to make selection easier and include the Courts, Probation Service and Prison Service.

QUANGOs include those concerned with Employment, Regeneration, Training and Business, such as Business Links, Chambers of Commerce and Enterprise Agencies.
With the exception of the QUANGOSs, the contacts listed with the Central Government database are Civil Servants. They implement the policies determined by elected Members of Parliament and feed-back information and advice. The Civil Service has no political bias and is unaffected by elections or ministerial changes. The total workforce represents approximately 10% of the workforce within the Public Sector.
