Non departmental public body
Functional Standards Common Glossary, published by the Cabinet Office, defines a non departmental public body (NDPD) as: ‘A subset of arm’s length body. A public body with a role in the process of national government that is legally separate from its sponsoring department and operates independently from ministers.’
They are not government departments; rather, they have distinct legal personalities separate from the Crown, and their employees are not civil servants. These are governed by framework agreements, which set out in detail the division of responsibilities between the NDPD and the sponsoring central government department.
