The Cabinet Office's administration spend for 2009-10 was £198.296 million and for 2010-11 was £202.311 million; a breakdown can be found on page 99 in the Annual Report and Accounts 2010-11 (HC999). The increase in administration spend is due to machinery of government transfers and budgetary cover transfers from other Government Departments to the Cabinet Office. The increase in expenditure is therefore offset by reductions in other Departments' spending. Meanwhile the Cabinet Office has generated approximately £35 million of efficiency savings in 2011-12.

Machinery of government transfers amounted to £8.165 million (main items being Constitutional and Political Reform from Ministry of Justice—£5.9 million; Office of Government Commerce from HM Treasury—£1.5 million). The actual spend for 2011-12 is currently being audited and will be published in the Annual Report and Accounts 2011-12 in mid July 2012.
