Travel and subsistence (reimbursable expenses) are claimed and authorised online via the Department's Integrated Financial Information System and are recorded under the general heading of subsistence. To extract the financial data requested would involve disproportionate cost.

All expenditure is made in accordance with published departmental guidance on financial procedures and propriety, based on principles set out in "Government Accounting". All travel undertaken by DCSF civil servants is undertaken in accordance with the requirements of the Civil Service Management Code. The Department does not have any Executive Agencies.
