HO/B: Head office/branch. This very useful field is applied by our analysts to differentiate between the head office of an agency and network branches, or to differentiate between the main adminstrative structural body of an institution and its faculties. Representation of branches and regional offices in our database is strong, approaching 10,000 contacts.
Examples of branches include libraries, works depots and service centres of regional councils, customer service centres of government departments, and faculties of universities.
