DWP spent £1,614,326 in 2010-11 on design, editorial and branding with regard to publicity and marketing carried out by DWP Communications.

In respect of buildings design, since 1998 the Department for Work and Pensions occupies the majority of its accommodation under a private finance initiative (PFI) known as the PRIME Contract. Under the terms of this PFI the Department leases back fully serviced accommodation from its private sector partner Telereal Trillium. This covers the provision of a variety of building and facility management services including the capital expenditure projects (CAPEX) where buildings require alterations to meet changing business requirements. Telereal Trillium's estimate of design costs incurred on CAPEX projects during 2010-11 is £900,000 excluding VAT.
