The OBR is committed to transparency. As part of this commitment, we report details of our governance terms of reference, minutes of meetings and annual corporate and business plans.

We also publish a log of substantive contact made between ministers, special advisers, private office and opposition MP’s and the OBR.

Our full and transparent Annual report each summer also appears on this page, which includes a summary of our work over the previous year, details of our budget and an assessment of the OBR’s performance from our non-executive members.

You will also find a log of hospitality received and expenses incurred by the Budget Responsibility Committee, and all OBR expenditure over £500.


The OBR’s Oversight Board is responsible for establishing and taking forward the strategic aims of the OBR and for ensuring that we have effective governance arrangements in place, providing assurance on our internal risk management and controls. It consists of the three members of the BRC and our three Non-executive members, Dame Susan Rice, Baroness Hogg and Bronwyn Curtis OBE.
