The National Maritime Information Centre (NMIC) and Joint Maritime Operations Coordination Centre (JMOCC) are currently funded by annual contributions from the major government stakeholders, Border Force, the Department for Transport, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, the Marine Management Organisation, the National Crime Agency, the Home Office (Office for Security and Counter Terrorism) and the Police. In addition to the financial contributions, a number of these stakeholders also directly sponsor posts at the NMIC and JMOCC. The Royal Navy supports the NMIC-JMOCC estate, along with other infrastructure.

The long-term funding for both organisations will be considered as part of next year’s planned Spending Review.
