The administration budgets regime overseen by the Treasury relates to Whitehall Departments only. How administration costs are controlled in the Devolved Administrations is a matter for them. Treasury do not monitor regional or central London administration costs separately.

The most recent Public Expenditure Outturn White Paper (CMD 6639) has information for provisional 2004–05 departmental administration costs outturn and the Departmental Report (CMD 6539) contains estimated 2004–05 pay bill outturn.
