Within major departments you will also be able to link to Cabinet Office's Quarterly Data Summary information, which focuses on the expenditure that is most relevant for that department and is collected in a way that makes data comparable across government.


The GIST is currently only updated until the end of the financial year 2014/15. Updated OSCAR information is still available in GOV.UK OSCAR data If you have any questions please contact
