Cabinet Office content has moved to a new website. The Cabinet Office has become the latest central government organisation to move its corporate and policy content onto the GOV.UK website - the new single home for all transformational government services and information.
Cabinet Office content, plus content from the Offices of the Leaders of the Houses of Commons and Lords, has joined that of eight other departments whose content moved to GOV.UK between November 2012 and February 2013.
The Inside Government section on GOV.UK makes it simpler, clearer and faster to find out:
- how government works;
- what the government is doing;
- how you can get involved
New web addresses
All web addresses are being redirected, so you don’t need to update your bookmarks, but you might want to make a note of these new addresses:
- www.gov.uk/cabinet-office - Cabinet Office
- www.gov.uk/government/organisations/the-office-of-the-leader-of-the-house-of-commons - Office of the Leader of the House of Commons
- www.gov.uk/government/organisations/office-of-the-leader-of-the-house-of-lords - Office of the Leader of the House of Lords
The Inside Government section of GOV.UK has been designed to make government information easier to find and more transparent for the user. For the first time, you can begin to find out what’s happening inside government all in one place, and in a clear, consistent and transparent format.
You will notice that the new website looks very different from the ones it has replaced. The look is one obvious difference, but many of the other significant changes are less visible.
Transformational Government Topics
You can now see information from multiple government departments grouped by topics. For example, you can see how policies from Cabinet Office and other departments are contributing to national security or economic growth.
Departments and agencies that have moved to GOV.UK are publishing their policies according to the outcome the government is trying to achieve. For example:
For each policy, you can see a list of all the related announcements, consultations and publications in one list, called ‘latest’. The latest tab makes it easy for you to track what is happening on the policies that interest you, for example, all government activity that relates to establishing stability in Afghanistan.
More about Inside Government and GOV.UK
Inside Government is still a work in progress, with only some organisations live. Work will continue as other departments and organisations, many hundreds in total, move their information to GOV.UK. This will happen in batches and will be completed during 2014.

The Next Generation Shared Services Strategy outlines how government departments and arms-length bodies will work together to share functions such as HR, procurement, finance and payroll to deliver potential savings of between £400 and £600 million a year in administration costs.
