The core responsibilities of the Ministry of Justice are set out in the Appropriation Act for each year which authorises the use of resources for each Department. The core functions listed include the administration of the National Offender Management Service, Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals Service and civil and criminal legal aid, together with functions in relation to justice policy, victims and the criminal justice system.

The costs of delivering the obligations are published in the Main Estimates and the Ministry of Justice annual report and accounts.
