The Department currently has a total of 83 inward secondments the vast majority of which are from organisations in the wider public sector. The costs and salaries for inward secondments to the Department are met in full from public funds by the business unit engaging them.

There is no current requirement on Departments to formally collect information on the status of organisations to determine whether they have charitable status.
