Expenditure details

Transparency on what the Commission spends

The Equality and Human Rights Commission is the independent regulator for equality, human rights and good relations in Britain. We are a statutory body established under the Equality Act 2006 and our sponsor government department is the Department for Education.

The government made a commitment to publish expenditure transactions over £25,000 online. The Commission has opted to publish at £500, which is below the government's minimum requirements.

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

Points to note:

  • expenditure transactions are recorded on the day of actual payment and include non-refundable VAT
  • personal information, such as wages and salaries and pension contributions, falling under the Data Protection Act 1998, is excluded
  • we publish information about salaries separately
  • information is published by the 15th working day of each month
