About COI

Central Office of Information was established in 1946 after the demise of the wartime Ministry of Information, when individual government departments resumed responsibility for information policy.

The aim of COI is to enable central government and public sector bodies to secure policy objectives through achieving maximum communication effectiveness and best value for money.

COI's objectives are to improve the effectiveness of and add value to government publicity programmes. COI achieves this through consultancy, procurement and project management services across all communication channels.

COI's Chief Executive reports to the Minister for the Cabinet Office. The Minister is accountable to Parliament and its Select Committees for all COI's activities. The Minister also sets COI's annual objectives for efficiency, quality and financial performance.
